Where to Stay in Cap Corse

It’s to the North of Bastia that you’ll find Cap Corse.

This is an excellent choice of place to stay in Corsica if you wish to discover the wilder side of the island and its less touristy aspects.

What makes it special are its quaint and picturesque little villages like Erbalunga, Centuri, Nonza with its black pebble beach, or Patrimonio, famous for its many vineyards.

Hiking enthusiasts will enjoy the customs officers’ trail which runs along a good portion of Cap Corse (19 km in total) from Macinaggio to Centuri.

If you don’t feel like walking that much, I recommend doing just the most famous part: Macinaggio to Barcaggio in 3.5 hours, stopping for a swim break on one of the beaches.

So, where have you planned to stay for your visit to Corsica?

Where to Stay in Corsica: I Answer All Your Questions

Where to stay in Corsica to get around?

If you want to explore the entire island, you might consider an itinerant stay, changing locations every day or every other day as suggested in my itineraries. In this case, you should favor the main Corsican towns.

For example, you can stay in Ajaccio, the capital of Southern Corsica, which has an airport and a port. There, you can visit the birthplace of Napoleon, the Fesch Museum, the citadel, and the cathedral. Ajaccio is also a great starting point to discover the Calanche of Piana, the Gulf of Porto, or the Scandola Nature Reserve with a boat excursion.

You can also stay in Bastia, the prefecture of Upper Corsica, which also has an airport and a port. Bastia is a historically rich city with its old port, citadel, governor’s palace, and Saint John the Baptist Cathedral. Bastia is also a good base for exploring Cape Corsica, the Nebbio region, or Balagne.

If you prefer a quieter and more authentic stay, you might choose to stay in one of the many picturesque villages in Corsica. This way, you can enjoy the charm and friendliness of the locals while being close to nature.

You might also stay in Bonifacio, the southernmost city in Corsica, perched on a white cliff overlooking the sea. There, you can admire its marina, old fortified town, Romanesque churches, and sea caves. Bonifacio is also an excellent starting point to visit the Lavezzi Islands or take a trip to Sardinia.

Another option is to stay in Corte, the historic town in the center of Corsica, which was the capital of the island under Pascal Paoli. You can discover its Museum of Corsica, citadel, belvedere, and cathedral. Corte is also a good base for hiking in the Corsica Regional Natural Park or the Restonica Valley.

Regardless of your choice, you should book your accommodation in Corsica as early as possible, as the island is very popular with tourists, especially in summer. This way, you can benefit from a wider choice and better prices.

Where to base yourself to visit Southern Corsica?

For a beach stay, I recommend staying either near Bonifacio or near Porto-Vecchio.

If you’re seeking a more nature-oriented and active holiday, you can choose Zonza, a village at the foot of the Bavella Needles. There, you can hike in the Corsica Regional Natural Park or the Restonica Valley.

If you want to enjoy city life, numerous bars and restaurants, you might also consider Ajaccio as a good option to stay in the South of Corsica.

Where to stay in Corsica with a family?

For a family stay in Corsica, I mainly recommend two places:

  • Calvi, which has a long sandy beach with shallow waters, perfect for children. Staying in Calvi also allows easy access to family-friendly hikes, swimming in natural river pools, or taking the little train to Île Rousse.
  • Near Bonifacio / Porto-Vecchio if you want to spend your holidays enjoying the stunning beaches of Southern Corsica.
