The bay of Calvi

Bay of Calvi, the magnificent one !

The purity of its waters, the richness of its heritage as well as that of its history, present the bay of Calvi as a beauty spot in the island of beauty. We invite you to discover this small corner of paradise which is located in the northwest of Corsica.

From its alleys to its citadel…

The most remarkable is, without a doubt, the spectacle offered by its majestic Genoese citadel. Like a jewel box set on the water, it looks at the snow-covered massifs of Monte Grossu in the distance, reflecting their shadow on the sea. Then, if you stroll in the narrow streets of the city, delicatessens, Corsican designer stores, beauty and wellness boutiques and restaurant terraces await you. They promise you atypical and unforgettable encounters!

From its marina to its long sandy beach…

At the foot of the imposing Genoese building, fishermen’s and yachtsmen’s boats moor in the colorful marina. A few steps away, but still in the city center, is its long beach of fine, pristine white sand. It is bordered by a pine forest that you can walk along by the wooden footbridge that borders it. After your swim and your sunbathing, this green oasis promises you some refreshing shade.

Exceptional panoramas…

Now, take a walk along the seaside road, in the direction of Galeria. First of all, it is the Revellata, with its imposing rocks, its lighthouse and its intimate beaches which will be offered to your glance. Then, if you take the small road that climbs to the left, on the heights of the hill, you will arrive at the favorite place of the Calvais… Notre Dame de la Serra. Of course, it is above all a place of worship and pilgrimage. But, the chapel and its sanctuary offer you, in addition, the most beautiful panorama on Calvi and the surrounding mountains.

And then you will understand the meaning of the word: “MAGNIFICENT”!
