Figari is in the southern tip of Corsica. The unspoilt French island is renowned for its rugged and mountainous beauty. Corsica will always be popular with lovers of the great outdoors due to its sublime landscape lending itself to numerous activities such as hiking and climbing. There's a wealth of lovely beaches here just a short drive away in places like Bonifacio and Porto-Vecchio for anyone who takes up car hire in Figari. Hiring a car in Figari will give you access to the whole of South Corsica, and the service is available from our pickup points at Ajaccio and Figari Airports.
Visiting Figari and Southern Corsica is like taking a trip back in time; the area is largely an unspoilt wilderness, nicely interrupted by idyllic towns and the occasional bustling city. Heading north to Porto-Vecchio via Bonavella and the mountains must be one of Europe's nicest drives. If you're travelling directly to Porto-Vecchio, it's only a 20 minute drive from Figari on the D859; here you'll find quiet beaches like Palombaggia and Santa Giulia. If you're hiring a car in Figari, Bonifacio is 20 minutes south on the N196; here you'll see the wonderfully historic Bonifacio Citadel. Rent a car in Figari and explore the rugged wilderness of Southern Corsica.
Hiring a car in Montpellier means you can also explore the rest of the region; why not drive up to the Amazonian Greenhouse which gives shelter to endangered species, and learn all about them at this fun facility. Or if you're more of a water baby, then head to the coast to Le Seaquarium. Here you can see Mediterranean and tropical fish, seals and sea lions as well as checking out the turtle museum. The Seaquarium also has a shark centre, home to almost 25 different species of sharks and rays. You also have the chance to learn all about conservation and take part in some interesting awareness raising activities.
