What to do in Corsica

Which language is spoken in Corsica?

Although French is the official language, Corsican people are also comfortable in speaking Corsu, which has been the tradition since ages. Corsu is more an oral language than written and it varies from regions to regions. This dialect, is akin to Tuscan, and mixes elements of Italian, French and a bit of Sardinian dialect.

Delve into the island’s multifaceted heritage

The Mediterranean island of Corsica offers a variety of landscapes: chic coastal towns, dense forests, and steep mountains. Almost half of the island’s territory is classified as a natural park where it is possible to hike, especially on the GR20, known for its difficulty.

Some of the island’s beaches are very reknown like Pietracorbara, others are quite secluded like Saleccia and Rondinara. Corsica has been part of France since 1768, but its culture remains influenced by Italian culture. Let’s explore the treasures of the Island of Beauty!

Bonifacio, city of cliffs

Perched high up a white limestone cliff on the southern coast of Corsica lies the medieval town of Bonifacio. Known as the “Mediterranean’s Sentinel,” or simply, the “Citadel of Cliffs,” it’s arguably one of the island’s rough diamond. Explore the beautiful cobblestone alleyways and dive in the shoreline of sparkling waters.

Meet the marine fauna

At the four corners of the Beautiful Island, scuba diving is a true bliss : the water there is limpid, and the ocean floor is extremely rich and varied. Diving in Corsica is to discover an island with multiple hidden treasures! Thanks to its preserved natural environment, the jewel of the Mediterranean, offers exceptional diving sites such as the Réserve Naturelle de Scandola classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Experience the summits

The GR20 is a mythical long distance hiking trail through the island of Corsica, from Calenzana in the North, to Conca in the South. This 200km trail, stunningly beautiful and varied, follows the granite backbone of mountains that divide the island in two, many of which soar above 2000m altitude. Experience the best and toughest long distance hike out there!

Adventure time in the Corsican canyons

One of the best ways to experience the magic of Corsica is to go canyonning through its notorious gorges. With a team of experienced instructors, throw yourself at the canyons of the Island of Beauty. A unique and atypical experience to live in Corsica!
