The city of Calvi is built on a rocky peak SE of Punta San Francesco. A square tower dominates the upper town inside the citadel. The lower town spreads SW of the citadel, beside the harbor with, in the background, modern neighborhoods built along the hills. A long sandy beach bordered with pine trees and alongside the railway running along the bottom of the gulf.
The town of Calvi is dominated by the imposing citadel and within it lie many treasures revealed to those who choose to wander beyond the port and explore the alleyways and old cobbled streets.
Calvi, originally a small fishing port, has always been historically significant, and, once having been occupied by the Genoese, it is reputed to be the birthplace of Christopher Columbus. It remains the capital of the Balagne region, one of the most prosperous areas of Corsica.
The surrounding hills and mountains create a natural amphitheatre which is called the `Garden of Corsica'. Calvi possesses a beach of 6km of fine white sand, next to the ancient harbor and old town. It is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island with a gentle slope and safe bathing in the shallow, turquoise-blue waters.
Windsurfing, diving, jet-skiing, yachting, water-skiing and paragliding are amongst the wide variety of water sports available in this perfect setting.Don't Miss These:
