Corsica Help

We are going to corsica on saturday and have a villa just outside of figari, a general questions perhaps but has anyone got any hints and tips as to what to do nearby, we would like to spend a day at a local beach if possible and not ones for sitting by a pool so would like to go out and about as much as possible. Also where is the nearest good sized supermarket to stock up on provisions?

p.s we do have a hire car

roseoakhil, your are very lucky!...i am sure you will have a great time

best things to do are:

- all local beaches on the Figari coasts...there are many but access is not always easy

- a day trip to Bonifacio (amazing old town on cliffs) and surrouding Piantarella, Sperone (including its breath taking golf course)

- a day trip to PortoVecchio (old town and supermarkets) and some selected beaches: Palombaggia or SantaGiulia

- Rondinara which is 30min from Figari on the Eastern coast

- Propriano and its local beaches in the North

- Some mountains and little villages (around Sartene etc.), hiking, white water activities etc.

for supermarkets...your best option is PortoVecchio (Leclerc or Geant) which is 35min from Figari

enjoy your Corsican holidays!!
