In Corsica you can do practically everything. If you like lazing on beaches, there are coves all along the coast. Without walking far you can find peaceful little bays where you can read a good book, caressed by a light sea breeze.
If you are more sporty then you can walk, off-road cycle or ride. The regional park has 1,500 kilometres of signposted walks, as well as the GR20 and the "Mare e Monti" path. You can also go canyoning in Castagniccia , or diving in Scandola reserve. A whole range of leisure activities you can try for the first time , or practice as usual!
Why not go to Corsica to try its food. There are lots of farmhouse inns where you can try local specialties, which vary according to the region and the season. Brocciu or figatelli aren't eaten in summer, it's not the right time...
The charcuterie is famous, but cannelloni with herbs or jugged wild boar, eaten in a little village and accompanied by a local wine, have that little something that remind you of the things your grandma cooked for you. By the sea, eat grilled fish or seafood. Don't forget to go down to the port to see the fishermen come back so you know what they have caught.
And don't forget the sheep or goats milk cheeses, preferably from local farms, and of course the desserts, canistrelli, fiadone…There's so much to choose from.
