Corsica: When to Go

April and May are good times to come in terms of sunshine + price, but there is more going on from June through September. Like all hotels on Corsica prices soar in July and August, but the north tends to be less expensive than the south. The south is a little more popular, but for what it’s worth, we preferred the north.
