I will be on a cruise this summer stopping for a number of hours in Corsica. What is important to see and/or do? Are there beaches? If so, where?
When you consider how volatile the corsicans are I'm not surprised to read your comments! They don't like anyone, even mainland French are considered foreign and aren't popular. They don't like tourists. You only have to watch french news during the summer to see the number of holiday homes that go mysteriously up in flames. That said, it is a dramatic and beautiful island - shame about the residents!We are thinking you have Corsica confused with Paris On our 3 visits to Corsica we found the locals to be quite friendly, but perhaps that was because we were not from France.
I would appreciate any ideas of best sights , lunch or a pubBonifacio is simply one of the nicest place you can visit. There the old town on the chalk white rocks, but depends your time you can make a boat tour from the port area to Lavezzi islands. You are passing close under the splendid cape of Bonifacio. Mostly you can go off the boat at Lavezzi and take another boats later onwards. You will enjoy this place!
. We will be in Bonifacio for 1 day late September

On the contrary even people are quite friendly and hospital . Also food is excellent. I think that there is "over-aged" reference to a sitauation going back 15 years agoo where there have been incidents, mainly versus French mainland residents.
P.S. Before anyone flames us for the Paris slur, it is probably our favorite city in the world. It's just that sometimes we feel you have to love Paris despite the Parisians.
