Top 10 views in Corsica

 

1. Peering across to Bonifacio

The view from the surrounding cliffs towards the fortress town of Bonifacio, particularly those enjoyed from the Pertusato lighthouse, are simply stunning. With the town seemingly perched precariously on the edge of the clifftop, there is a fairy tale vibe to this view, enhanced even further during sunset.

 

2. From Notre Dame de la Serra to Calvi

Showcasing the beauty of Calvi's coastline and the historical layout of the town's Citadel, the views afforded from Notre Dame de la Serra across to Calvi Bay are magnificent. From the smattering of boats and the dominance of the Citadel, to the azure water and surrounding mountains, this is one view you have to capture.

 

3. Coastal scenery across Roccapina

Best enjoyed from the road that passes through this southern area, the coastal views enjoyed across the mountains and off the south of the island are simply spectacular. If you're feeling extra adventurous, take the drive down towards the beach where you can spend a relaxed afternoon.

 

4. The view from Piana

The perfect vantage point for enjoying views across the Calanques de Piana, as well as the other surrounding mountains and distant coastal scenery. The Gulf of Porto is a particularly scenic region of Corsica, also home to the Scandola Nature Reserve, best viewed from the water.

 

5. Gazing from a perched village in la Balagne

In the mountains discovered inland from Calvi, perched high above the distant coastline, visitors will encounter a collection of traditional villages. Whether you find a vantage point from one of the villages across to Calvi and the coast, or you gaze down onto a village with its smattering of buildings and intriguing architecture, you'll find the views are well worth a photo.
