Northern Corsica (Upper Corsica or Haute-Corse), less touristic than the beaches of South Corsica, offers a great diversity of landscape.

Bastia, Saint-Florent, Calvi and Ile Rousse are the most famous and best-equipped destinations for seaside tourism. But many small villages are completely unknown. There are very interesting in summer because beautiful beaches with low attendance are located there provided you get off the beaten track.The beaches in Northern Corsica are mostly covered in pebbles in Cap-Corsica.

There are small marines and typical villages with steep cliffs from where you can find below unknown beaches.

There are sandy beaches in Bastia and Saint-Florent. The East coast extends to the south of the department. Large sandy beaches are on the programme with, at the edge, a significant scrubland and not very touristic areas. We pass alternately Costa Verde (the Green Coast) for its wild side and Costa Serena.

There are wonders hidden in the west in the Gulf of Saint-Florent, like the Agriates desert and the Nebbio region. Then, there are Balagne with Calvi and the northern Gulf of Porto with its roads winding through beautiful scenery and a few hidden beaches.
