This island will offer you a diversity of natural landscapes, with heavenly beaches, not to mention the climate and water temperature: everything is there to make your stay unforgettable. It is easy to understand why Corsica is nicknamed “the island of beauty”.
The mountains and cliffs overlook the white sandy beaches and the turquoise and translucent water. The island has a strong cultural history, a rich heritage and many beautiful typical villages. As soon as you arrive, you feel a real change of scenery and the impression of being at the end of the world, only a few hours away from the continent.

The advantage of Corsica is that you will enjoy pleasant temperatures all year round thanks to the Mediterranean climate. The sun is present whatever the period, with an exceptional rate of sunshine from April to October.
Be aware that in the summer, prices and the flow of tourists increase considerably. It is therefore ideal to go there out of the summer season.
For swimming, the water temperature is pleasant between June and October.
There are two ways to get to Corsica: by plane (the fastest) or by ferry. The plane will take you directly to Ajaccio or Bonifacio, with regular flights from many French cities. As for the boat, you will find daily crossings from Marseille, Toulon and Nice to Ajaccio.
