Your day by day program

1
Bastia to Macinaggio

After arriving in Bastia we transfer you to the harbour at Macinaggio at the top of the Cap Corse. Your hike starts in Macinaggio, at the north-eastern tip of the island. It is a pleasant place with restaurants and a very good ice cream parlour near the harbour and a long white sandy beach, ideal for a dip, nothing like it before starting your Corsican walking holiday.

Macinaggio to Barcaggio

A lovely coastal walk on the "customs officers path" around the top of the Cap Corse. Walk passing small secret coves, turquoise waters and an intoxicating atmosphere of wild maquis and countless opportunities for swimming not to mention a stop at the superb Genoese tower of Santa Maria. Your evening will be in a tiny little port of Barcaggio just opposite the island of Giraglia.
