Corsica is as much an island of small villages, groups of hamlets and small ports as it is of important towns. The most popular resorts and larger towns that attract most visitors are shown here.

Principal towns, villages and resorts

Corsica has four main towns, Ajaccio, Bonifacio, Bastia and Calvi. Whilst these are well worth a visit in their own right it is often the smaller towns and villages that are the most memorable during your visit to Corsica.

Some of our favourite towns and villages are shown above. Corsica has much to offer and exploring the island is a real delight.

As well as the larger and better known towns and villages of Corsica there are many smaller villages to discover - see also Corsica villages for a selection of the most attractive smaller towns and villages.
