Hotel Moby Dick is a true gem located in a large hidden cove on the southeast coast of Corsica. Here it's all about the beach - silky white sand, aquamarine water, soft breezes and a temperate climate. The rooms are simple and comfortable. One of their prime features is a gastronomic restaurant overlooking the bay where the food is excellent and the excellent local Corsican wine can be sampled. If you can tear yourself away from the beach, its worth the 45 minute drive into the interior of the island where the roads wind around and up into a true mountain range, wild and perfumed with local growth.
