Diving Corsica

Diving in Corsica is, first and foremost, accepting to explore the 'Isle of Beauty' from underneath; the hidden side ! Corsica is a very well-preserved gem at the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, with dive sites like the Scandola Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage site. It will most definitely deliver, maybe even more than what you had expected! Locked in between the south of France to the north, Toscany and Italy to the east and Sardinia to the south, Corsica displays some very rugged landscapes, with high cliffs to the south as if to protect the island and its wonders from the wandering traveller! It is sitting like a crown jewel on the azure waters of the 'Med' and harbours a truly diverse marine life amid a string of protected areas: Scandola, Finocchiarola, Biguglia, Cerbicale, the Bonifacio estuary and Suartone's Tre Padule. If you dive around the Gulf of Sagone, it feels like you're flying in mid-water with the whole of the Mediterranean marine fauna... the visibility is remarkable, even down at 40 meters! Come May and June, the tourists are either gone or not there yet so you can enjoy the island by yourself in the most chilled out atmosphere.

The underwater topography includes trenches, pinnacles and sea mounts, canyons, rocky ridges; most of it is protected in sanctuaries free from pollution so the fauna as much as the flora will surprise you! Over the years Corsica has built up a reputation that outreaches the French realm as a great diving area, famed for the diversity of its environment, with dozens of dive sites to show! A great diving destination - best explored from May to October - awaits you...
