The mountainous island of Corsica sits southeast of mainland France in the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea. The island itself is a place of indescribable natural beauty, but even more awe-inspiring is the white sand beach of Palombaggia. From the shores, backed by stone pines and red rocks, swimmers and beachcombers can marvel at the panoramic views of the untouched Cerbicale Islands. And underneath the water’s surface, an entirely new world of colourful sea creatures awaits. Palombaggia is truly paradise, whether you’re above or below the sea.
You will have to use a ferry to get to Corsica. Ferries to Corsica depart from French ports Marseille, Toulon and Nice, and from Italian ports in Savona, Genova, Livorno and Civitavecchia. North America can either fly to Rome in Italy or Nice and Marseille in France from where you can get a ferry to Corsica. You will find in Porto-Vecchio a unique mix of both idyllic unspoilt beaches along Corsica’s southern coast and breathtaking mountain scenery. Palombaggia is 12 km south of Porto-Vecchio, approximately a 15-minute drive. Access is via a long and winding road.
