Goodbye Costa Verde, Costa Serena, East - South Regions

Third Week Vacation in Corsica

It was Saturday at about 11:00 a.m. we departed from Moriani beach on our way to the west side region of Corsica. It was warm, about 30 degrees and we had a long way to travel about 400 - 500 kilometers. We packed enough drinking water, and some fruits. We had a liitle bag just perfect to accomodate our swim suits, bath towels, sun protection creme and drinks as we will be stopping by at any of the beaches on our way to our destnation. Tiuccia where we booked a liitle apartment with an overlooking view of the ocean and some nearby beaches.

We cross over the mountains passing the main road of Casinica region, a part of Catagniccia, to Nebbio region as we decided to stop by at El Rousse.

El Rousse is a beautiful tourist city with wonderful white sandy beaches. We took our lunch in a restaurant by the sea. We enoyed the delicious black mussels menu with some french frites, salads and crepes as dessert.

We made a walk around El Rousse, after we continued our travel along the beautiful scenery of the mountains and fantastic beaches, and nice towns of the north west regions.

We drove along the coastline but we did not pass by Calvi, instead we made a short cut driving through the land area direct to the Golf of Galeria, Punta Palazzo, Golfo de Porto and made a stop over at Piana.

Piana is a well known tourist attraction for hiking with a photography of stone mountains,the adorable wonder of nature.

Passing by Cargese and at last we arrived safely at the Golf of Sagone and found our apartment in Tiuccia.

These terrace apartments were located in the hills with a beautiful panaroma of the Golf of Sagone. We had a big covered veranda, a little garden, a fireplace grill. It has two bedrooms, a shower and a toilet with standard interior design and kitchen equipments. I was impressed with the scenery overlooking the wide sea horizont admiring from our veranda where we used to take our breakfast and dinner.

I could see the wide ocean from my bedroom, lying on my bed i enjoyed the blue green color of the ocean water and this every morning, day by day.

The little supermarket is just 5 minutes walk, and my husband used to buy fresh bread early in the morning. We also bought the necessary things we needed, meat, fish and vegetables.

Tiuccia is a very little town and have some restaurants along or direct the coastline. We often went to Sagone about 15 minutes drive where there are lots of beautiful beaches and restaurants direct at the beaches.

We visited Ajaccio, the capital of Corsica. Ajaccio is a good place for shopping and an interesting city with lots of tourist attraction. Ajaccio have nice beaches but we prefer swimming in our place and the nearby beaches.

We found a private place as we drove directing Capo di Feno, a liitle cove with pebble stone beach, a good place for snorkeling.

Contrast to the calm beaches is the Leamone beach where high tides can be observed, just 10 minutes drive from Tiuccia.

Leamone Beach - Westside Region of the Island of Corsica

Leamone Beach - the wonderful, amazing beauty, exciting sounds of the dangerous big waves ... one can admire ...

One of our favorite beach where we loved to admire the great high big waves that came from the dangerous ocean water.

It is dangeorus to take a swimm because of the strong current with monster waves. It is known that many tourist have died taking the risk of swimming in this exciting high waves, though there were still some courageous tourist who were swimming against the strong high waves and they seemed to enjoy the risk, an adrenalin pure.

As my son a 12 year old boy was playing near the coming 2 meters high waves, he was catched by the waves and was carried away, just a second it happened as he was trying to swimm against the waves to come up, i was so scared that i shouted for help, i prayed to God, "bring my son back, help him", my heart was squeezing from anxiety, though my husband was on his way to help my son, he was once pushed away down from the strong waves, trying the second time to reach my son, i thank God he was swimming up over the waves and my husband took his hand and brought him back to shore. A man was running towards us to help, good my husband had given all his strenght to save my son. He told us to better watch out and be careful, many have died carried away from the waves down deep to the ocean with the strong current.

I have never felt this strange panic and anxiety before, begging God for help, to do whatever he commands just to save my son. I was so tired after all what happened. The kind of feeling was straining and has taken a lot of my energy.

My husband is a good swimmer and diver so with my daughter, though it was dangerous to swimm, they want to experience swimming with the big waves. My heart was pumping faster from my anxiousness as i called them not to swimm too long. I was so uncomfortable, i can't stay calm, how i hated to feel that way, i can no longer suffer and i din't want to experience this feeling for long, i was angry and beg them to come ashore.

Benda was enjoying the waves, as she came near the water and as the waves came to shore, she runned far away as fast as she can and then came back again as the waves came down. It was funny and enjoyable watching her running here and there.

The beach is so long, it took hours to walk along the seashore. We enjoyed walking barefoot, feeling the water pushed by the waves to the wide seahore, the white thick bubbles that covers our feet. It was fascinating to walk in and out of the sea water and leaving our foot prints as we continue to our steps reaching the mouth of the river that had made a division of sand forming a little lake of sea water and fresh water aligning a channel to the sea. The lake is ideal to swim and perfect for little children.

      Yes John, Corsica is a big island. The first 2 weeks of our holiday we visited north side were we stayed to the south regions and some of east north-east regions. Our 3rd week, we went to the west side by travelling along some coastline of north-east but not all since we made a short cut through the montains and also not going to Calvi, instead we travelled the land/mountain area to Cargesse continuing to Tiuccia now through the coastline.

      Thanks for your comment.

      Good stuff, Corsica is definitely an amazing island. But you say 400-500km of travelling, the island isn't that big http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corsica (180km x 80km). Enjoy your holiday.
