SWISS flights from Zurich to Figari in South Corsica are fast and comfortable. The area is full of small bays, small islands and beautiful beaches. The bay of Figari is the longest of them, here windsurfing, sailing and kitesurfing are very popular.
The whole bay is lined with picturesque beaches where sunbathing is the main activity. Diving in the wonderful underwater world of the crystal clear Mediterranean is another good way to spend your time. Between the bay of Figari and the village itself you will hike through the unique scrubland of Corsica, the Macchia. The scent of wild spices and herbs such as rosemary, thyme, basil and sage is a very typical highlight of the beautiful island.
Around the southern tip of Corsica there is a long series of small bays and coves. The mighty chalk cliffs of Bonifacio are the only gap in this series of beaches and romantic coves. The houses of the beautiful old town of Bonifacio stand right on the edge of the cliffs. During the high season you can take a ferry every hour to Sardinia, which is only 12 kilometers south of Corsica. The famous beaches of Santa Giulia, Rondinara and Palombaggia are very close to the east coast of the island.
The Corsican cuisine is particularly pleasant, hearty and full of the flavor of the macchia and its many spices and herbs. The local wine is also world-famous, so drink a glass and enjoy the aromatic air full of sea water and the many scents of the island. SWISS wishes you a wonderful holiday for all your senses.
