Contributor C. Oberschneider used a DJI Phantom 4 drone to create this stunning aerial tour of Corsica, the great French island in the Mediterranean.  The island reflects a blend of Italian and French cultures, which is a function of its history: the island was a territory of Genoa for almost five hundred years beginning in the late 13th century.  In the video, you'll get a good overview of the island, including some of its towns, its famously rocky coastline, and its beautiful mountainous interior.

Amaury Descours

The Punta di Campomoro is one of the most scenic spots in Corsica. It sits at the northern tip of this French island in the Mediterranean which is situated just to the north of Italy's Sardinia. One of the hidden gems of the Mediterranean sea, it offers a fantastic coastline and dazzling blue waters. Noted as a beach lover’s heaven, it’s no wonder why contributor Amaury Descours took his drone to the sky to capture this epic island, whose most famous personage was Napoleon Bonaparte.

If you look at the French Mediterranean island of Corsica on a map, one of the things which stands out is the crazy shape taken by the island's western coastline.  It is by far the most jagged looking coastline of any Mediterranean island.  "On the ground" it means a fantastic number of bays, small inlets, and lagoons, many of which are not accessible by road.  As you'll see in this drone video by contributor Grib, boaters have countless secluded spots from which to choose.
