Corsica is the fourth largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and one of the 27 regions of France. Located only 12 miles from Sardinia and more than 140 miles from the French coast, Corsica is usually called "the mountain of the sea". Majestic and silent, sunny and generous, this island appeared from the depths of the sea as a result of tectonic movements of the crust.

Like vigilant guards, mountains rise over the island, with steep rocky walls beautiful in any season. The highest peaks of Monte Cinto and Monte Rotondo can be visible from any part of the island.

Total length of the coastline of Corsica, is about 1,000 km – which is the fifth part of the total coastline in France. Here you will find incredible diversity of nature from steep rock walls to wide sand beaches in hidden and secluded lagoons.
