In the southwest of Corsica, Ajaccio is the first city to share her nice long gulf, its cultural heritage and activities. Known as the city symbolized by Napoleon Bonaparte with the Napoleonic lounge and the Bonaparte house, it offers real attractions.
The Far South
The south of Corsica basin is represented by its two main cities, Porto-Vecchio and Bonifacio. On the outskirts of Porto-Vecchio, beautiful Corsican beaches such as Palombaggia, Santa Giulia line the coast and creeks.
The Corsica Cape is the most diverse region of the island. This is not just a succession of mountains covered in scrub and plunging into the sea. It was here that was erected a third of Genoese Tours of the island, stone ramparts supposed to allow to alert the population in case attacks.
Through the diversity of its landscapes combining both all the features of the coast and the interior, even the mountain, the Balagne is alone a small Corsica in Corsica. Calvi and Ile Rousse, the two Cities of the sea, are renowned for the richness of their natural sites: long sandy beaches, coves, rocks and peninsulas. They are separated by Lumio and the long Algajola Bay to the delta of Ostriconi which is among the coastal treasures.
