Corsica

Jane Anderson, Honeymoon expertJane's verdict
Corsica has a delicious sophistication and old world charm that only the French could achieve slap bang in the Med. For powder white sand without the long-haul flight, this is the island for you, with beaches like Palombaggia. Throw in dramatic mountains, historic towns and fabulous cuisine, and Napoleon’s birthplace makes perfect sense.
