DIRECT FERRIES – an online ferry comparison site – says the French island of Corsica is its number one island destination this year with bookings up by 163% in the first six months of 2016.
The island has more than 200 beaches and clear waters, making it attractive for holidaymakers interested in scuba-diving, jet-skiing, yachting, and canoeing. Inland, activities include hiking, horse riding, mountain biking, rafting, and canyoning.
Direct Ferries flags up six lines that offer a total of 21 routes to Corsica from France and Italy.
Departures from mainland France are available from Toulon, Nice, and Marseille, while from Italy, ferries depart from Savona, Genoa, Livorno, and Piombino. Crossings operate year round.
Prices start at £168 return for a car and up to four passengers.
