This magnificent, lush green island lies south of the French mainland. Even though it’s been French since the mid 18-hundreds, Corsica is closer to Italy than France. A touch of the Italian taste means you can truly enjoy the best of both worlds.
Campsites by the beach
Most campsites in Corsica are right on the coast. With a splendid beach on one side and the incredible interior, with forests, caves and waterfalls on the other. Not surprisingly, many tourists come camping on Corsica for the perfect peace and quiet. As you sit on the pearl white sands, staring out over the crystal clear water, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’re in the Caribbean. Corsica has a glorious Mediterranean climate, but no matter how hot it gets, a welcoming breeze always seems to cool you.
To see and do on the Island of Corsica
Head to the beach, straight from your campsite, to enjoy some great sunbathing, swimming, sailing or scuba diving. Although the island is a watersports paradise, it’s also excellent for hiking and mountain biking. There are lots of interesting sights too. Visit Napoleon’s home town Ajaccio, the stylish resort of Porto Vecchio and the wonderful beaches of Saint Florent. A real highlight is Bonifacio, without doubt the most stunning spot on Corsica. Camping on Corsica really spoils you, as this fantastic holiday destination really has it all.
