Secluded Figari, a traditional Corsican village that has risen in popularity along with the growth in usage of the local airport. The first port of call for holidaymakers heading down to the islandís beautiful beaches, Figari has a certain charm of its own to offer. Consider spending a laid back morning or two eating and exploring the village and rounded off with an equally relaxed trip to the nearby sandy beaches of St Guilia and Palombaggia. A twenty minute journey away is the picturesque coastal spot of Bonifacio.
Surrounded by vast glorious vineyards, olive groves and stretches of fertile land, Figari is a picture of rural perfection and tranquillity equalling the virtues of a relaxing beach holiday with ease.
Sunny Figari is found on the south west corner of Corsica in an inland position and offers a plentiful stack of pretty cafes, charming shops and interesting walks.
A short distance away, medieval Bonifacio is over an hourís drive across mountainous terrain from Figari. Good news if you are a bird and bad news if you are not a keen mountain driver. Fear not, for driverís bravado pays off in the form of a stunning cosmopolitan and attractive coastal town. There is an old town section where tiny roads cross and an ample supply of traditional eateries appear out of nowhere to offer welcoming refreshment and local dishes. There is a gorgeous harbour offering more eateries as well as bars and posh shops, as well as an intriguing eighteenth century district all seemingly balancing atop Corsicaís south eastern cliff tops.
If staying in Bonafacio, when the medieval sights become wearing, there are the beaches to enjoy in the townís northern edges as well as the option to board a pretty little boat and make for neighbouring Sardinia and the Iles de Lavezzi.
When in Corsica, you must explore Bastia. The town and French commune, being situated in the north of Corsica, is a considerable drive up from southern most Figari. The capital of the Haute-Corse departement, Bastia was until 1790 the capital of the island too. Amongst other things, Bastia is particularly famed for its excellent wines and port. It is a delightful holiday destination that is ideal for touring the island as well as Mediterranean island hopping.
Boasting three hundred and forty full days of sunshine per year, relatively undeveloped Bastia is the Medís best kept secret. Enjoy its tranquillity while it lasts.
The main port on the Cap Corse district of the island, Bastia is also Corsicaís main commercial town. Although the town experiences some pretty treacherous weather throughout the year, there is the mad wind and several days of freezing temperatures, generally the town offers some really superb weather. Temperatures here average out across the year to just over fifteen degrees centigrade.
During June every year, an hourís drive away from Bastia is the Calvi Jazz Festival bursts into action. Taking place at a variety of venues about the island, the festival attracts audiences to the most unexpected of places including cafes, the port and alleyways about town. For those whose tastes are broader than jazz, never fear, for there is much more to offer besides, including salsa, blues and reggae.
A few kilometres by sea to the east of Corsica, many people have a fancy for visiting Sardinia while in the vicinity. Sardinia is separated from Corsica by the Strait of Bonifacio.
Nearly the largest Mediterranean island in existence, if it hadnít been for Sicily, Sardinia sits in the middle of Tunisia, Spain and Italy. Today, Sardinia belongs to Italy following occupation throughout its history by everybody from the Phoenicians to the Romans.
