Dive into the blue waves that surround the island on all sides. Best of all, a snorkeling or scuba diving session can be had in one of the Marine Nature Reserves, from the Cerbicales Islands to the Lavezzi Islands, through the Finocchiarlo Archipelago, Scandola or Bonifaccio.
2. Sample ripe fruit
The local production of summer fruits ripens into incomparable taste and freshness. Peaches, nectarines, apricots, fresh figs, plums, grapes or cherries are all served with gusto.
3. Chase the rivers
Corsica is criss-crossed by numerous streams and rivers, whose banks sometimes allow passage on horseback or wading. Less frequented than the beaches, they ribbon all throughout the island, waiting for visitors seeking calm and freshness.
4. Find sanctuary in religious places

The island is full of religious buildings, the witnesses of Corsican fervor: churches, convents, oratories, chapels—there are no fewer than 150 chapels in the 18 municipalities of Cape Corse! It's more than enough to commune with your spirituality ... and enjoy the coolness inside the great stone buildings!
5. Take shelter in the forests
Known for its sea and mountains, Corsica also has many surprises in the heart of its forests. Beautiful and populated with multiple species, they deliver their secrets (and their shade in the summer!) to the relaxed ambler, the nature-lover, or the experienced hiker. Bonifatu, Ospedale, Piana, and many more forests hide wonders under their canopies.
6. Take a break in a bergerie
Sheep farms (bergeries) enjoy a place of honor within the Corsican heritage. Simple or ultra-luxurious, they often welcome guests for a lunch or a stay—and the centuries-old stones of their buildings always harbor cool air.
7. Paddle at sunset
Enjoy the serenity found paddling on a sea dyed the orange-yellow-violet of a Corsican sunset. The air is soft, the sky is electric, and you're gliding on a board in the cool evening air. Paradise!
