Popular Destinations in Corsica

Ajaccio

Visit the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte. The capital of this Mediterranean Island has its origins in an Ancient Roman town, and you’ll find many museums displaying artefacts that they have found over the years.

Explore the quaint pastel painted houses along the Old Town, and wind through the cobblestoned alleys to find tucked away cafes and shops, filled with delicious food and marvellous trinkets.

Ajaccio is also home to a harbour, filled with ferries and private yachts to take you across the island.

Lavezzi Islands

Dive the depths in the Lavezzi Islands, a small group of rocky islands off the coast of Corsica. These islands have beautiful shell sandy beaches, and mediterranean waters, perfect for swimming or Scuba Diving to explore the friendly marine life, made up of large groupers and other smaller sea creatures.

The colonies have thrived under protection, and have no fear of humans, allowing you to get as close as you like.

There are no cafes or facilities on these islands, so make sure you bring food and water, but the mainland is only a short 15 minute boat ride away.

Bastia

Relax in this commercial port town, Bastia. It is classified as a ‘Town of Art and History’, and has an impressive backdrop of Cap Corse, and lovely rolling hills.

You’ll be attracted to its faded charm and twisted alleyways, getting a sense that you’ve gone back in time.

There are cathedrals and monuments aplenty, with many having a juxtaposing luxury interior, filled with crystal chandeliers and baroque style architecture.

Porto Vecchio

Visit this charming old town. Most towns on this island have ports, and this town is no exception. Dubbed one of Corsica’s most fashionable towns, there is also a vibrant nightlife, with many bars packed every night in the summer months.

Porto Vecchio is modernity meets tradition, with many cobbled streets and historic monuments, there’s also beautiful white sandy beaches and turquoise waters.

Calvi

Yet another port town, Calvi remains a product of architectural and cultural heritage. Calvi hosts a 13th Century Fortress, and you mustn’t leave without visiting its remains, standing proud on the headland.

It is also, supposedly, the birthplace of Christopher Columbus, according to the locals !

There are a bunch of lively bars and restaurants that line the coast, all the way up to the citadel, so be sure to sample the local French / Mediterranean cuisine.

Travel Risks in Corsica

Always be vigilant of thieves and pickpockets operating in the area, and keep an eye on your valuables at all times.

Corsica has a somewhat rustic feel, and often debit card transactions will be turned away, so you will have to rely on having the cash to pay for your items. This in turn creates a problem, as cash is a lot easier to steal. Only travel with the amount you intend to use on that day.

If driving in Corsica, be vigilant of farm animals in the roads, and when travelling late at night, be wary of drunk drivers, as numbers have increased in recent years.

Global Health Insurance Card

The GHIC (Global Health Insurance Card) replaced the EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) on the 1st January 2021.

You can use this card to access medical healthcare abroad. This includes state healthcare including emergency treatment, treatment for existing medical conditions, routine maternaty care, oxygen therapy, kidney treatment and many more healthcare requirements.

Please Note: This is not a substitute for Travel Insurance, as there are restrictions on cover and you might have to pay some costs. It is important to note that this card will not cover Repatriation.
