Forty kilometres long and only fifteen across, the rocky peninsula of Cap Corse gives access to some exceptionally beautiful and unspoilt stretches of coast.
Villages perched on cliffs and secluded rocky inlets line the west; tiny fishing ports and sandy coves fringe the east. Enjoy some coastal walks along the rugged northern coast of the Cap Corse. Inland, and to the north, the village of Luri, surrounded by lemon trees and vineyards, hosts an annual wine fair at the beginning of July with winemakers from throughout Corsica proudly presenting their wares.
A complete circuit of the Cap Corse will take you about four hours from St Florent (without stops) and we recommend that you always drive in a clockwise direction so that you are always in the inside lane (the road can be narrow and winding and the drops are precipitous).
Worth visiting is Nonza, a flower-garnished slate roofed village, which seems to have sprouted from its craggy foundations. Centuri Port makes a great lunch spot as its many restaurants are based around the old fishing port and their menus are reliant on the catch of the day.
