We got back from Corsica on Monday night. All I can say is wow! What a paradise. We went scuba diving near St. Florent (Ludo Beach), The Cape of Corsica in the north, as well as near Calvi. We were supposed to have done one dive in Porto, farther south, but if got cancelled because of weather. The diving was good, especially near Calvi, but the best thing we did (and indeed one of the best things I’ve ever done on vacation) was to rent a boat out of Porto and cruise up the coast of the Scandola reserve, stopping to snorkel and freedive along the way.
This unique video, courtesy of my friend Alexandre Boscari, was taken a little over a week ago in Port-Cros. The fish in question is a Grouper or “mérou” in French. They are usually pretty tolerant of people, but this one is downright friendly.
