Scenery and highlights in Corsica

The scenery in Corsica has many highlights - from the clear blue sea and the palm tree backed beaches to the mountains of the interior, the hill villages of the east and dramatic views across the Mediterranean from many vantage points all over the island...and much more besides.

The below is not intended to be a definitive list, just a few hints of the pleasures in store when you visit Corsica, and to entice you away from the coasal regions! See also the Corsica villages page, which has lots of villages in particularly scenic settings across Corsica.
