Though Corsica has been a part of France for over 200 years, it feels as though it has it's very own identity separate from the mainland. Surrounded by the Mediterranean, Corsica is home to some fabulous beaches, mountains, and forests. Out of Corsica's many glorious beaches, Plage de Palombaggia on the southeast coast has to be one of the best due to its miles of sand lined with pine trees. It's also worth taking a trip to Bonifacio which is a beautiful yacht-filled harbour.
