Child-Friendly Holidays in Corsica
Corsica is French island in the Mediterranean with world-famous beaches, perfect for stress-free holidays with babies and toddlers.
Flights from the UK only take two and a half hours, so it is not far to travel to warm weather and beautiful beaches. The short journey is also ideal for easier travelling with children.
If you’re free to travel outside of school holidays, then September is the perfect time to visit Corsica as it is sunny and a lot less busy.
Although Corsica is officially part of France, it is very much a place of its own with different culture, customs and cuisine.
The world-famous Palombaggia Beach is located on the south coast of Corsica. It is absolutely stunning with fine white sands and blue seas, surrounded by red granite rocks and beautiful pine trees.
It is also very child-friendly as the soft sand is perfect for making sandcastles. The water deepens very gradually so there is shallow sea for little ones to play in. Lots of restaurants, bars and snack
Corsica has its own style of cuisine, but there are enough familiar dishes to satisfy picky eaters, and their food is made from fresh, local ingredients.
La Rouf is situated along the beachfront at the beautiful Pinarello Beach and has a wide range of cuisine. Enjoy local meals such as mussels and seafood, or choose between favourites including pizzas, burgers and steaks.
For a family treat, don’t miss Gelateria L’art De La Glace at Porto Vecchio, which serves a delicious range of local gelato in a variety of flavours.
L’Etenisula in Zonza is a bistro café, which has a separate kids’ menu, and also serves the most delicious chocolate brownies. If you want to enjoy the local produce, they also sell local jams and olive oils to take back to your holiday home and enjoy.
For little adventurers, there are plenty of tree-top walks and adventure playgrounds in Corsica.
Take a trip to Bonifacio, which is a fascinating town with massive limestone cliffs, which have buildings balancing on top of them.
There’s plenty to do in the town itself and Bouches de Bonifacio Nature Reserve offers the most varied vegetation in the Mediterranean.
An unmissable day trip is the Train de la Balagne, which travels from L’Île Rousse to Calvi. This little adventure offers an exciting way to see the Balagne coastline, and gives you the chance to discover Calvi at the other side.
