21 Photos That Will Make You Want to Visit Corsica

French call it l’Ile de Beauté – the Island of Beauty -, and when you visit Corsica it doesn’t take long to understand why.

I can’t even recall how many times I’ve been to this very special island, discovering it by boat (something I highly recommend, since there are magnificent stretches of the coastline that can’t be reached from inland), on a road trip and hiking.

What draws me in time and again is Corsica’s diversity: stunning beaches with crystal-clear water, rugged mountains which in some areas dive into the sea, charming hilltop villages where time seems to have frozen and beautiful cities full of history.

Because sometimes, images are more powerful than words.

If you only have time for one village inland, then head to Corte. Perched on a steep hill, the view from below is simply beautiful.

The narrow alleys invite for a stroll, and the small, picturesque squares are perfect for a break, sipping a drink and just looking around. Don’t expect the perfectly kept village, though. You’ll see colorful laundry hanging from the windows, peeled facades and shutters with fading colors. It’s that lack of perfection that makes Corte so quaint and full of charm.

Corsica has many lovely towns and the best way to discover them is taking a road trip and driving along the winding side roads. One of my favorites was Ota, a charming hamlet not far from Porto, with great views of the surrounding mountains.

Corsica boasts a great variety of seascapes and beaches: fine white sand in the area of Porto Vecchio, black sand in Cap Corse, and many rocky spots. The color of the sea ranges from light blue to emerald green, inviting for long swims.

Even when there’s no access to the coast, the view from above is simply breathtaking.

Expert hikers visit Corsica for its many beautiful trails, including the famous GR20, one of the most challenging hikes in the world. There are, however, plenty of easy trails with awe-inspiring views, like in the spectacular Restonica Valley, near Corte.
