Uncover France's treasured island

Proud Corsica is a French island with a fiercely independent streak. Corsica's many beautiful beaches are a closely-guarded French secret. Book your Corsica holidays to find out why.

Fly to Bastia in the north and enjoy the unspoilt Cap Corse, or fly to Figari and enjoy the string of beaches around Porto Vecchio, or the white cliffs and cool grottoes around Bonifacio.

What this island lacks in French finesse, it more than makes up for in craggy beauty and seductive sunsets. Before you discover its wild shores, relax on a very civilised flight. Whether you fly to Bastia or Figari, enjoy our award-winning service, and arrive refreshed and ready to relax.

Corsica flight FAQs

Flying from London to Corsica takes around two hours. It's slightly quicker to fly to Bastia airport than Figari. Flights to Bastia take two hours and ten minutes. Flights to Figari take two hours and 25 minutes.

Corsica is not as hot as you might expect. Profiting from its mountains and sea breeze, it’s balmy rather than stifling. Its August temperature has an average high of 29 degrees and in the late spring you’ll get a sunny 22 degrees. Inland in the mountains it is several degrees colder than on the shore. Explorers: pack your layers and waterproofs.

With 200 beaches, and a whole lot of beautiful coastline, it’s difficult to decide where to stay in Corsica. Villas provide peace, quiet and privacy on a family holiday, whilst there are luxury resorts across the island. Stay near Ajaccio, the capital or join the jetsetters in swanky Bonifacio. If you’re looking for hotels near the beach, the town of Porto Vecchio is surrounded by soft, curving coves.

Thanks to the French visitors, Corsica’s restaurants cook to a high standard and you’ll easily find Gallic cuisine. There are also plenty of Italian restaurants for when you’re craving a stone-baked pizza. Corsicans are brave with flavour and local specialities are all rather pungent – strong sheep’s cheese and delicious spicy sausage are sold at most markets.

You can’t leave Corsica without experiencing ‘true’ Corsican culture. Drive inland to the citadel-topped town of Corte. The island’s old capital is evocative and traditional and from here there are walking trails and canyoning excursions into the surrounding mountains.

Citizens of the UK and Ireland and EU passport holders do not need a visa to visit France. If you hold a passport from a country or territory outside of these areas, you may need to apply for a visa before you travel. You can find out more about visa requirements for all the countries we fly to at the IATA Travel Centre.
