Holidays in Corsica

A holiday to Corsica rewards visitors with rugged landscapes dominated by snow-capped granite peaks and covered in fragrant and colourful vegetation. Known as the ‘scented isle’, the French island lies just west of Italy in the Mediterranean Sea.

Corsica has a unique blend of old world French and Italian culture and is studded with exceptional vineyards, quaint fishing villages, attractive towns and a fantastic nightlife. Corsica’s 1,000 kilometres of scenic coastline and warm climate means it is a popular destination for families and holidaymakers looking to relax on pretty beaches near crystal-clear waters. Explore the outdoors in Corsica with one of our offered outdoor activities for the more energetic traveller. Corsica is a hiker and mountain biker's paradise with its many picturesque walking and cycling trails that suit all levels of competence.

Our resort in Corsica

San Lucianu Beach Resort has a homely but sociable feel and is a favourite with families and watersports enthusiasts. There’s so much on offer from sailing, windsurfing, tennis, mountain biking, or simply taking to your sun lounger beside the pool or on the beach.

Children are well catered for at San Lucianu, and will love the large, dedicated childcare centre which offers clubs for children from 4 months of age upwards. For teenagers, we run the "Indy Club" - a place for teenagers to come along and meet fellow teenage guests and join a daily programme of team activities and fun.

Weather in Corsica

The weather in Corsica is some of the sunniest in France, receiving eight to nine hours of sunshine a day in peak season. It has a cooler climate in comparison to France’s northern regions thanks to the fresh ocean air and the increased rainfall this encourages. The summers are hot and humid, with July and August the hottest months at an average temperature of 29°C. May, June and September have a pleasant daytime temperature in the mid-20s and nights are a mild 17°C.

The best time to visit Corsica

Those wishing to avoid the height of summer can enjoy the wildflower-filled spring and red hues of autumn. Winters can be cold, with average temperature lows of around 2°C. The days are shorter, with around nine hours of daylight, and it can be overcast although not unpleasant. Annual rainfall is relatively steady, with an average of nine and a half days on which rain falls a month, meaning the landscape is always green and abundant.

Is a lovely time of year to visit Corsica, with temperatures averaging around 18°C, it is bright and sunny and the sea is warm enough for a dip.

Temperatures get even warmer in June and there is a lot less rainfall. Sun-seekers start to arrive looking to relax on the golden beaches.

July is the height of summer in Corsica. There is very little rain but it can get humid. The sea is warmer and great for cooling off.

Corsica is likely to be quite crowded in August. Days are dazzling with white heat and nights are balmy, with a hint of ocean breeze.

Temperatures drop a little in September and there are not so many tourists. The sea has been warmed by the summer sun and is still pleasant for swimming.
