Best Corsica Holiday Deals With Trips From £297pp
BETWEEN France and Italy you will find a Mediterranean island that perfectly combines the two cultures.
And with more than 200 beaches to choose from, a holiday in Corsica should be high on your bucket list this year.
Getting to the island from the UK is also relatively easy, with many direct flights and an average flight time of two hours.
The weather in Corsica is pleasant almost all year round. However, summer is the best time to travel.
From May to September temperatures reach highs of 30°C, while in winter the average temperature is around 12°C.
Apart from that, the island has hundreds of sunny days throughout the year, so it could be a good holiday destination even in winter.
There are many activities to see and do in Corsica.
The island has more than 200 beaches along its 620 miles of coastline.
Some of the most popular beaches are Santa Giulia beach, Palombaggia beach and Saleccia beach.
Nature lovers can explore the beautiful towns of Bonifacio and Calvi or visit the Scandola Nature Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
