Visit Corsica during your holiday in Sardinia. Just 8 miles across the water from the northern tip of Sardinia, Corsica is easily reached by a 50 minute ferry journey from Santa Teresa.
This is a great opportunity to visit an equally beautiful and relatively unspoilt island but with a French influence, rugged mountains and stunning scenery, including beautiful beaches and bays around Porto Vecchio and Propriano and of course the dramatic town and port of Bonifacio.
Just Sardinia can advise on flights from the UK via Corsica, and ferries on to Sardinia. We can then recommend hotels in Corsica for either a short stay or longer holiday to combine with your choice of accommodation in Sardinia. With flexible durations (subject to availability) we can tailor make a holiday to suit you, your family or party.

See the beauty of Sardinia and Corsica with this luxury tour.
Combine your holiday in Sardinia with two other beautiful Mediterranean islands, Corsica and Sicily. Corsica is 8 miles north of Sardinia accessed by a 50 minute ferry journey from Santa Teresa on the northern tip of Sardinia to Bonifacio in southern Corsica. Sicily is approximately 220 miles from Sardinia (Cagliari to Trapani) and can be reached by a short flight or longer ferry crossing.
Bonifacio can be recognised by its fortified old town perched on top of sheer white cliffs on the southern tip of the island, enjoying wonderful sea views to Sardinia and over the port below, with yacht marina, quayside shops, café bars and restaurants.
Porto Vecchio was originally a Genoese stronghold with the old town of Porto Vecchio, on the south east coast of Corsica, set on a hill overlooking its beautiful deep blue bay and yacht marina below. The ancient streets and charming square are full of little boutiques, cafe bars and restaurants. There are beautiful beaches at Pinarello to the north and Palombaggia and Santa Giulia to the south.
Propriano was originally founded in 1640 by the Genoese at the innermost point of the Gulf of Valinco, on the south west coast of Corsica. Propriano has since become a busy tourist port and town, with lovely views of the surrounding maquis covered hills and bay with turquoise sea. Palm trees fringe the charming quayside lined with inviting pavement cafés, boutiques and tall old houses. There are some beautiful sandy bays and rocky coves nearby including Porto Pollo, Abbartello and Campomoro.
• Covering an area of 8,741km2, Corsica is the 4th largest island in the Mediterranean, significantly smaller than the islands of Sicily and Sardinia and with only 36 inhabitants per km2, it is one of the least densely populated places in Europe.
• Known as 'L’Île de Beauté' (the Island of Beauty) by the French, with its sensational bays of warm, transparent waters, edged with golden-white sand, majestic mountains and verdant hillsides scented by the herbs of the maquis, Corsica is a truly enchanting Mediterranean island.
• The natural landscape is rich in vegetation with vibrantly-coloured wildflowers, olive groves, pine forests, rolling vineyards and fruit farms.
• Villages perched on steep hillsides with an eclectic mix of Baroque, Pisan and Genoese churches, rugged mountains standing high above and lush green countryside leading down to the azure sea, combine to make Corsica a charming, untainted and effortlessly beautiful holiday destination.
• Despite its close proximity to France and Italy, the beautiful island of Corsica remains distinctive in both its history and culture, offering even seasoned travellers a unique and memorable taste of the Mediterranean.
