With a backdrop of snow-capped mountains and five miles of sandy beaches offering a whole host of watersports for the adrenaline junkies, Calvi is a popular Corsican town with a constant flow of luxurious yachts lending it a resemblance to the French Riviera. However, it isn't just the splendours of the town itself- the Chapel of Notre Dame de la Serra and its views over the town, for example- that draw in the crowds. Lying just off the coast is the UNESCO Marine World Heritage site of Scandola, only accessed by boat and home to seals, dolphins and pink-mottled volcanic rock. Alternatively, for those more comfortable on dry land, a rickety train carries passengers from Calvi along the handsome coastline to the picturesque town of L'Ile Rousse, famous for its cafés and aromatic food market where visitors can pick up a bottle of locally-made Muscat.
