The beautiful Mediterranean island of Corsica, nestled west of the Italian peninsula and south-east of the mainland of France, is a jewel of rugged mountains, green forest, sandy beaches and stylish towns. It is a region of France, though its proximity to Italy lends it a distinctive Italian feel. Around half of the island is set within a park – Corsica Natural Park – which features hiking trails that wind among forests, lakes, mountains and gorges. With a hire car in Corsica, you can easily explore the region to the full in your own time.
Corsica is also justly well known for its beautiful beaches, from the powder white sands of Calvi in the north-west, peaceful Arinella and remote Loto to stunning Palombaggia and popular Pinarello in the south. Whether you are looking for isolated beauty, superb snorkelling, fun water sports or simply a great beach to chill out on, Corsica has it all – you can discover miles and miles of picturesque coastline by renting a vehicle here.
A hire car in Corsica can be picked up from Ajaccio Airport. Ajaccio is the capital of Corsica and a town located on the west coast of the island, about halfway down. It is connected to the north and south of the island by major routes.
