The French island of Corsica is an undeveloped gem where the charm of old Europe shines within the beauty of azure Mediterranean waters and white crescent beaches. From relaxing in a crystal lagoon to hiking for days through thick forests and along rolling green hilltops, a Corsica honeymoon has something for everyone.

History buffs will love the old churches and forts, and party heads will love the hip colonial charm and fun nightlife. Still, the island’s cities have managed to avoid over-developing the area. That means you’ll be able to choose from all the kinds of hotels from boutiques to all-inclusive, but still be able to enjoy the old-world island ambiance.

Imagine a fortress on an enormous cliff, the rock so thin that the corner of the fortress merges with the cliff itself. The hills beyond roll for miles, dotted with green trees and little European huts. Then transport yourself to a peaceful beachfront where white sands give way to turquoise waters stretching as far as the eye can see. From blue bays to big mountains the land is diverse, but breathtaking in all its forms.

Kayak, dive, hike or relax. Sip coffee al-fresco at a laid-back cafe or share the day catching a tan. Tour the harbor cities or the historic forts. Get your thrills from above on a mountain bike, or below on a deep-sea dive. No matter what you do, booking a honeymoon package in this palm-lined paradise means you’ll celebrate love on an island that’s just a little closer to heaven.
