Calvi

Calvi’s town beach is a pretty stretch of sand backed by pine forests and a cute little beach side railway.

Whether it’s bathed in golden evening sunshine or in the bright glare of daylight, it attracts plenty of folk.

The beach stretches for 6km With a gently shelving gradient as well as warm and protected waters.

There’s lots of restaurants and cafés nearby – some of which serve directly onto the beach.

We enjoy some sun soaking before the next adventure 🙂

Colourful Calvi

Calvi is an attractive tourist town that is worth basing yourself in for its proximity to many pretty beaches.

A medieval citadel overlooks the marina from the bay’s western end, and is home to the Baroque St-Jean-Baptiste Cathedral and cobbled streets.

We’ll be exploring the meandering streets of the citadel later on.

Calvi and surrounds

The next town on our hit list, whirl wind tour of Corsica was Calvi.

It’s known for its beaches and crescent-shaped bay. A medieval citadel overlooks the marina – but more of that later.

We head to catch the sunset at one of the many lovely beaches. This rocky delight is Arinella beach.

A moody grey sky ominously looms over the hills in the background but the evening sunshine saturates everything in its honey glow.

We love this one so much that we head back later on in the trip 🙂
