By air or by sea?

Corsica is 170km, roughly 110miles, from the coast of mainland France.

By plane, Ajaccio is only 75minutes from Paris.

By sea, day crossings are shorter (c. 5hours) than night crossings (embark 9pm, disembark 7am). If you’re coming with your family, we recommend night crossings and don’t forget to book a cabin.

Ferries to Ajaccio are available from Marseille, Toulon and Nice.
