When is it best to fly to Corsica?

British Airways has flights in the summer months only to Corsica. Weather on the island is the most stable, but breezy, in late summer with an average daily high of around thirty degrees on the coast, though it’s cooler in the mountains. It can get very busy in July and especially August, when plenty of French and Italian families visit. The cheapest flights are at the beginning and the end of the summer.

How long does it take to fly to Corsica from London?

Flying from London Heathrow to Corsica takes around two and a half hours.

What’s the best way for onward travel from Figari airport?

Our flights land in Figari airport on the southern tip of the island, just five minutes outside Figari town and not far from the popular towns of Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio. It takes a maximum of around three hours to reach most places on the island. It takes around two and a half hours to drive to Ajaccio from Figari and around three hours to drive to the north of the island.

Do I need a visa for Corsica?

If you’re travelling on a European Union (EU) passport you will not need a passport to visit Corsica. Those from countries outside the EU may need to apply for a visa in advance of your trip.

Corsica tips

Our Corsica hints and tips will have you feeling like a local in no time.

What language is spoken?

French is the official language in Corsica. However, most people also speak Corsican, which is taught in schools. This language is closer to medieval Tuscan Italian than French. The island is very used to visitors and you’ll find most towns tourist-friendly. Don’t feel the need to become fluent for a week-long trip.

What does the Corsica flag represent?

You’ll see the design of the Corsican emblem around the island and it might cause you to do a double-take. It shows the head of a Moroccan man in profile, with a white bandana. The design has been used for many centuries and has a complicated origin. It may represent a captured enemy, but there’s also an argument that the image could derive from images of Saint Maurice, believed to have African ancestry.

Weather in Corsica

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.

Where to stay

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.

What to eat

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.

Things to do

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.
