Text of Holidays in corsica

The first place to visit with a rented bike or scooter in Calvi Corsica is the presqule of the Girolata, an impressive promontory boasting a lighthouse and sensational beaches hidden behind boulders. Its roads are unbelievably bumpy and only get worse as you go, so it is best to park early and hike around the peninsula. On your way back, a right at the stop sign leads to a chapel with a must-see view of the entire bay of Calvi.

The light; and Calvis great sabre of sand, five miles in length, with its inspiring view of the citadel. Apart from in the high season, you have the beach practically to yourself. What's the first thing you do on arrival? I go the newsagent at the top of boulevard Wilson and buy two newspapers, an English one and the local, Corse Matin.
