From glorious white sandy beaches to treacherous mountain peaks, the French island of Corsica is about as geographically diverse as you can possibly get for a small island in the Mediterranean. Thousands of tourists visit Corsica each year to revel in its primitive beauty and enjoy the unspoilt majesty of its resorts.
Although Corsica has been an autonomous region of France for the last 200 years, its proximity to Italy affords Corsica a unique blend of French and Italian cultures. Charming fishing villages and citadels dot the coastline while sprawling vineyards and endless mountain ranges cover the inland, basked in Mediterranean sunshine.
You can take what you like from a Corsican holiday, perfect for those simply looking for a peaceful beach getaway and for those looking for a bit of adventure. The island is divided into 8 regions, each one differing from the last, so if you like your holiday champagne filled and glamorous, or historical and cultured, or even a bit on the wild side Corsica has something to offer you.
