Corsica: Cruises

A little slice of heaven (out of peak season)

Corsica is a popular stop off for Mediterranean cruises. Unfortunately most cruises only stop off in Ajaccio, the capital, for a day. There are also regular sea lines that serve Ajaccio from France [Marseilles, Nices, Toulon] and from Italy [Genoa]. If staying on the island of Corsica there are a few options in terms of boat travel around the island. One very popular boat trip from Ajaccio is to the Isles Sanguinaires. The boat trips hug the steep cliffs and will take you through the most picturesque passages. This is a great way to see the most beautiful views of Corsica's west coast, from the extreme south and the cliffs of Bonifacio, to the Scandola Nature Reserve just outside Balagne and Calvi. The dolphins often lead the way when boating around the coast of Corsica so this is brilliant trip for people of all ages.
