Reaching 2706 metres at its highest point, the third biggest island of the Mediterranean sea, 183 kilometres long and 83 kilometres wide, is a magnificent mountain that plunges into the sea. Real delight for the eyes, the "island of beauty" offers a large variety of landscapes: steep cliffs hanging over the sea, wild and unspoiled gorges, pine forests and scrublands, chestnut trees forests, mountain massifs, mountain lakes, fine sand beaches lapped by crystal-clear water, brightly coloured seabeds great for scuba diving... Magnificently unspoiled, the coast and inland of Corsica cater fully for sports fans, lovers of wild, unspoiled places and those just looking to relax.
