5 Reasons to visit Corsica this year
Today I’m gonna talk about my newest tropical experience. That’s right, Corsica!
So, after deciding where to go for a holiday we have picked Corsica, and here are 5 reasons why we think you should go for a Summer experience.
Bonfacio is THE city to visit if you want to be surrounded by the amazing combination of great architecture AND great landscape,all this with a fantastic view over the Mediterranean Sea. It was the first city where the rocky cliffs are close to the deep water and made the impossible possible to descend on a tall rock and just ” be one with the sea”.It was one of my favorite moments. Also go on a boat and explore the city from afar. You will be surprised how many hidden gems are in the city. 😉
If you are here for the sea food, delicious pasta and typical Italian coffee, the best thing you can do is arrive by boat from France and pick a big harbor city like Bastia, because Bastia has it all. There you will see great colonial architecture blended in with the urban rush, very big steam boats and the lush full palm trees. Fun fact, the day we have arrived there Camila Cabello’s ‘Havana’ was broadcast-ed for the first time on the local radio and this city is the closest I can imagine ‘ Havana’ to be if set in Europe.
If you are searching for amazing beaches with exotic touch, Corsica has plenty to offer. One of my favorites is the one you can reach from Saint Florent by boat only, “the Loto Beach “. Also great beaches are around the golf of Porto-Vecchio, like Sant Giulia or Tamarricciu. Don’t forget to organize a midnight picnic at the beach when the full moon shines the brightest,those moments are the best!
So much to explore
In Ajaccio there is one of the biggest Natural Park where you get to experience giant Land Turtles from up close. Many, many species are brought from all around the globe are kept in their natural habits so you and your friends can visit them. I do recommend spending a whole day there, since you might get the chance to find one that is big enough to carry you.
Corsica has a lot of soft and sandy beaches but if you are here in search of great views you will find that the cities are build on slopes and mountains so there is always an amazing view, no matter which side of the island you pick to explore. My favorite was the one in Porto – Vecchio,with a view leading to the sea and the boats. If you are searching for something special,more related to the landscapes, go to Aleria and head for the Roman Ruins,the view over the city is amazing.
Beside the obligatory Sun Screen I recommend bringing a cute one-piece bathing suit that you can also wear as a top styled with a pair of leggings, denim shorts or a skirt. The possibilities seem endless!
I’ve picked two statement pieces from Infused Swimwear. Also style your look with a pair of sunnies that go with your bathing suit. For me the blue tinted Vogue Eyewear were a must-have on this trip. They blended so well with blue water of the Mediterranean Sea.
For makeup you can go light with a touch of bronzer or highlight or go further adding an accent on the lids. My favorite pick was the YSL mono in Blue combined with the Chanel Les 4 Ombres” Tisse Beverly Hills”.
Enjoy the vitamin Sea and have fun!
