Corsica has four airports to welcome tourists looking to enjoy the charms of the Isle of Beauty. Air France operates daily flights to Corsica from London Heathrow and London City with a stopover in Paris. In the low-cost flight range, Easyjet operates seasonal flights to Ajaccio Airport in the south of Corsica. In the north of the island, the cities of Bastia and Calvi are also accessible by air on scheduled flights with Air France and Lufthansa. Low-cost flights are available with Easyjet, which offers seasonal direct flights from London Gatwick to Bastia and Ajaccio starting from £34, and from Manchester to Bastia from £40. Average flight times to the Isle of Beauty are around 2 hours for direct flights, and 4-5 hours from UK airports with a stopover. The airports in Corsica are well served by the island's public transport system.
Corsica is one of the most popular French destinations. Every year, the island's beaches are filled with eager holiday goers seeking some seaside relaxation. Ajaccio, Bastia or Porto-Vecchio, every corner of the island is worth a visit! From the mountains with their wild charm to the exceptional coastline, the variety of the landscapes fills visitors with wonder. Corsica has managed to preserve its natural spaces thanks to an international marine park, nature reserves (the Scandola Reserve in the northwest of the island, and Bonifacio Reserve in the far souther) and the Regional Natural Park of Corsica. Hiking enthusiasts can venture onto the legendary GR 20 trail that crosses the island from north to south. If you head off the beaten path, you will always end up discovering a little cove, a typically charming mountain village or a picturesque restaurant. Although the island has a first-class natural heritage, it would be a shame to limit your visit to just that. Corsica's culture shines with originality. The Genoise influence is very present, in the architecture of the monuments, the language of the island, the gastronomy, and even the traditional music (the famous polyphonic singing). The hospitality of the island's inhabitants, far from the cliché of Corsican people as being rude, shows a great sense of welcome and sharing.
