Corsica’s north west town of Calvi is most famously known for its beautiful beaches and crescent-shaped bay set against a backdrop of captivating mountains and surrounding pine forests. Home to baroque buildings including St John Baptiste Cathedral, a medieval citadel overlooks the marina from the bay.

The chapel of Notre-Dame de la Serra perched high on a hill top, it offers the most fantastic panoramic views over the city. The picturesque Quai Landry esplanade, adorned with yachts, it is a hot spot for the rich and famous, with Cannes and Nice glancing across in the distance.

Scattered with quaint cafes and hill top restaurants, stop and sample locally produced cheese, breads and olive oil, washed down with a glass of delicious local wine as you sit back and watch the sun go down. Wander down quaint cobbled streets and stop for lunch at one of the many outdoor restaurants lined along the harbour serving the freshest catch of the day.

Spring and autumn are some of the best months to visit when the temperatures are a little cooler. The quiet uncrowded atmosphere of Calvi’s beaches will at gives give you the feeling of having the whole stretch of beach to yourself.
