Surfing in Corsica 2020 - Best Time

Corsica is a comfortable surfing destination because of its mild winter temperature. Winter and autumn are the perfect time to come, as waves become just right for surfing. Multiple destinations on the west coast are ready for visitors and great for surfing. The bay of Ajaccio is probably the most famous surf spot in Corsica, notably the scenic beach of Capo di Fen. Other Corsican shores also provide good conditions to learn and master wave riding. As the waves in Corsica are rather unreliable, it's best to choose a location according to the wind direction.

Besides Ajaccio bay, Corsica boasts a few decent surfing locations in the north-west and north, namely around Algajola, Lumio, and Farinole. Algajola is the island's biggest wave spot. Generally, windswells are more typical for the area than groundswells. Therefore, this place is popular among wind and kiteboarders. The surfing conditions are the best when there are offshore winds from the southwest. Aregno Beach is one of the surfers' favorites.

In the meanwhile, beginners should better try elsewhere. Some of the best options in the area include Ile Rousse, Marine de Davina, and Beach of Bodri. All the necessary facilities are there—surf schools, shops, and vast campsites next to the beaches.
