5 reasons to visit Corsica in 2018


The beaches

If it is a beach holiday you're after, you'll find no better short-haul destination in which to appease your need for the sun, sand and sea than Corsica. The island is home to an incredible 1,000km of gorgeous coastline, dotted with close to 200 beaches, many of which are considered amongst the finest beaches in Europe.

Take a look at some of our best accommodation near the beach.

The coastline and mountain scenery

The beauty of Corsica's coastline and surrounding mountains is undeniable, making for some stunning vistas to soak up during a holiday on the island. We're always expanding our Walking Holidays programme, and in 2018, why not consider experiencing Corsica's incredible landscapes in all their glory by embarking on one of our rewarding itineraries on two feet?

The stunning climate

The island enjoys superb summer temperatures and has one of the highest sunshine records in the whole of France. During the height of the summer, you can expect average highs of 28°C, and even as late as October there will be warm days to enjoy. Outside of the summer, cooler temperatures in the mountainous interior make for some superb outdoor adventure opportunities.

The cultural heritage

For a day or two away from the beach, exploring Corsica's unique and fascinating culture and history is a highly rewarding experience during a holiday on the island. From attending a traditional festival or exploring an old citadel, to taking to the authentic villages of la Balagne and discovering the history of Napoleon (who was born on the island); there's plenty of history and culture to encounter in Corsica.
