What does the Balagne region offer for families?
The stretch of coast between Calvi and Ile Rousse and the hill country behind it is called “Balagne” and is also called “The Garden of Corsica”. From the holiday village you have the dreamlike sandy bay of Calvi right on your doorstep. This beach is especially popular with families because it is very shallow and therefore ideal for splashing around and playing in the water. If you are travelling without a rental car, you have a good opportunity to explore other bays and beaches and the small towns of Ile Rousse and Algajola for a change: A small narrow-gauge railway, also called “The fiery Elias”, has many stops and drives several times a day leisurely along the coast and is in any case a worthwhile excursion for young and old.
Calvi: probably the most beautiful seaport of Corsica
And for a leisurely walk to the town of Calvi, it is best to go to the beach and walk along the wooden jetty towards the marina. Numerous cafés and restaurants line the harbour promenade. The lively alleys of the old town invite you to stroll, the small shops offer delicious Corsican specialities, fashion, decoration and all kinds of souvenirs. Nice restaurants can be found on the beach as well as in the old town and even on top of the citadel. From there you have a wonderful view of the city, the bay, the Revellata peninsula with the lighthouse and the breathtaking mountains of North Corsica.
