With turquoise waters tickling white powder sands, drawing well-earned comparisons to the Caribbean, and sparkling towns recalling France’s Riviera – the allure of Corsica’s beachside destinations cannot be overstated. With more than 200 beaches to choose from, a holiday here is as much about discovering deserted, half-moon bays as it is enjoying the beach clubs, where heady cocktails and five-star seafood platters appear as if by magic.
Elegant beach holidays for couples and families alike
As exclusive as it sounds, a Corsica beach holiday can also be a family affair, the ice-cream flavours alone enough to capture the little ones’ hearts. And there’s a villa near the beach to suit everyone, from the coastline around Calvi in the north to the white sands of Pinarello, Santa Giulia and Palombaggia near Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio in the south, whilst exclusive Cavallo Island has villas with private beach access for a taste of real barefoot luxury.
