Things to do while you’re camping in Corsica
Corsica is overflowing with beautiful beaches that are perfect for little ones. Palmombaggia is a stunning white sand beach surrounded by pine trees, with plenty of shallow water and restaurants lining the shore. Santa Giulia offers a perfect horseshoe bay complete with a patrolling lifeguard and the opportunity to hire pedalos for a potter round the bay. Or try La Tonnara for an unspoilt location with a small beach restaurant that serves huge pizzas!
The town of Porto Vecchio offers gorgeous beaches, stunning mountain views and cobbled streets. You can pick up a kids trail ‘treasure hunt’ from the tourist office and make sure to visit The Porte Genoise (Genoise Gate) for the spectacular panoramic views of the harbour. You can take a variety of boat trips from the marina or hop on the mini train that travels up into the old town.
Animal loving youngsters will adore the A Cupulatta Tortoise Sanctuary – home to over 170 different species of tortoise and turtle breeds. There’s even a special nursery where you can see the newborn babies. At Porto is the small Aquarium de la Poudriere with around 150 native species, and a perfect cool spot to spend a few hours out of the sun.
For more adventurous families, why not try the Treetop Trail which is suitable for ages 3+? Or try a short coastal or day trip boat tour around the Corsican coast, with stop-offs at secluded coves.
