Corsica - The West Coast (Chapter)
This is the West Coast chapter from Lonely Planet's Corsica guidebook.
Roller-coaster your way along Corsica's straggling west coast for plunging cliffs, staggering views and glorious driving. Its three gulfs - Porto, Sagone and Ajaccio - are edged by golden beaches and aquamarine waters; inland, mountain hamlets and cool forests transport you to another world.
- take a boat trip to the spectacular Réserve Naturelle de Scandola
- sprawl on the fine sand of beautiful Plage d'Arone
- restaurants & accommodation
- explore the deserted village of Muna for a taste of mountain life
