Corsica is a French island situated in the Mediterranean Sea and is known for its beautiful coastline of more than two hundred beaches.
With its position in the North of the Mediterranean, getting to Corsica by ferry is quick and easy and whether you choose to sail from France or Italy, there’s a huge selection of ferry routes to choose from with ports in each corner of the island.
Departures from France are available from the ports of Toulon, Nice and Marseille. Crossings operate daily, year round, and increase with demand around peak season.
Crossings from Italy depart the ports of Savona and Genoa in the north and Livorno and Piombino on the west coast of Italy. As with the crossings from France, due to Corsica’s popularity as a destination, there are year round connections to the island, increasing during the summer period.
In addition, there is also a ferry crossing bridging the short gap to Sardinia, south of Corsica.
The majority of ferry passengers arrive by car, though vehicles can be hired from most port towns. The island has a well-connected road network which will allow you to take any one of the number of smooth roads along the coastline to reach the stunning beaches and sheltered coves, getting off the tourist track.
