Where to stay in Corsica
Ferries to Corsica from France
Calvi | Northwest coast of Corsica
Besides from beach life and water sports activities like windsurfing, kayaking, scuba diving and sailing you can take the shaky train ride from Calvi along the coast to the charming village of Algajola approximately 25 minutes away. The train ride alone is worth the trip - just for the views. If you stay on the train for another 20 minutes, you will arrive to the picturesque town of L’Ile Rousse, where it is well worth spending some hours.

L'Île-Rousse | Northwest coast of Corsica
You are never far away from a wonderful beach and L'lle Rousse has one of the warmest microclimates in Corsica, due to the Balagne hills that surround and shelter the town, so this small paradise is the perfect spot for a family holiday.

Porto Vecchio | St-Tropez" of Corsica
The narrow streets around Republic Square (the town square), in front of the Saint-Jean-Baptiste church, are packed with wine bars, restaurants and dancing venues with DJs, so you can dance the night away, should you so wish.
You can always catch up on your sleep with a nap on the beach next day, and Porto Vecchio has world famous beaches like Palombaggia and Santa Guilia with white sand and glittering turquoise shallow water.
Don't miss the backcountry in the nearby mountainous Alta Rocca region offering gorges, rivers and waterfalls. If you are up for it, this is the place to do mountain walking, rock climbing, horse riding or quad biking - and why not visit a Corsican mountain village for a bite to eat and enjoy a siesta in the shade.
