Corsica is a Mediterranean island, situated west of Italy, south of the French mainland and immediately north of Sardinia.
Its stunning 1,000 km coastline has over 200 beaches, whilst the inland offers a mix of mountain scenery, awesome valleys and idyllic hilltop towns, so you can see why the locals nicknamed it ‘the island of beauty’.
Although belonging to France, Corsica has a unique feel to it. This is perhaps most evident in the local dialect and the cultural obsession with flute instruments. However, drawing similarities with the mainland, Corsicans also love fine food and wine, especially fresh seafood and charcuterie.
Along the coastline are multiple ports, and, thanks to the island’s convenient location in the Mediterranean Sea, it’s within reach from the French mainland, Italy and the surrounding islands. There's plenty of choice, too, with frequent routes provided by many different ferry companies.
