In order to explore the entire Corsican west coast, and its famous D81, you will begin your motorcycle journey in Corsica with the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte, Ajaccio. You can also visit the Maison Bonaparte museum there.

You will then take the road on the D81, a famous winding road in different tones of volcanic red which offers one of the most beautiful views of the Piana coves.

By leaving early in the morning, you avoid the crowds of cars and pedestrians, but you will probably not avoid the unwanted crossings of goats or pigs!

After 45 kilometers, you will descend to the village of Cargèse, famous for its fishing ports, then take the road again to the gateway to the Scandola nature reserve. This marine area, classified as a UNESCO world heritage site, is home to the Piana coves, which are unmissable on your Corsican stroll!

Continuing your road trip, you will reach Galeria, the first Corsican town to organize a motorcycle festival, the famous Galera Biker Bay, which usually takes place between May and June. If you go there during this period, you will have the pleasure of making a short, or even long, stopover there, and meeting other motorcycle enthusiasts.

Once you leave, you will continue to the old citadel of Calvi, said to be the birthplace of Christopher Columbus. It overlooks the beautiful houses and small streets below it, the fishermen's port and a long beach of fine white sand. Ideal for getting some sun and fresh air and taking the opportunity to visit all its wonders.

The next stage of this motorcycle tour in Corsica is to reach Île-Rousse, especially for those who are more cautious. The beaches of this island are recognized as being the warmest in Corsica.

Leaving what could also be called “the island of sunsets”, you will notice that the D81 becomes the N197. No, this is not an error! You will move away a little from the seaside, and move inland, crossing the Agriates Desert.

After 67 kilometers traveled from Calvi, you will reach the famous tourist resort of Saint-Florent, where the stars come to rest in their summer residence.
