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.

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.

Contributor David Dreyfus brings us this beautiful aerial video of the southwestern coast of Corsica, the French island in the Mediterranean.  The video was shot in between Roccapina and Murtoli, the former being on the coast and the latter being a few km/mi inland in the island's mountainous interior.  The coastline of this part of the island is one of many bays, most of which are only reachable by boat due to their distance from the main T40 road or the much smaller D48 route.

North of Cap Corse, the peninsula which forms the northern tip of the French island of Corsica, there's a tiny island called Giraglia.  The island's two landmarks are a tower built by the Genoese in the 16th-17th centuries called Torra di Giraglia and a lighthouse.  Both landmarks are official monuments protected by the government of France.  In this video by Altrove, you'll get a bird's eye view of this iconic looking island, which is barely visible on a map.

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.

While most videos of Corsica focus on its Mediterranean coastline, with this drone video by TheCorsicanDroner you'll get a bird's eye look at the interior of the island.  The spot filmed is the Uomo di Cagna, a mountain  situated in the south central part of the island.  The granite mountain has also given birth to some spectacular looking rock formations.  Much of the interior of the island is sparsely populated, as the vast majority of Corsica's 330,000 permanent residents live on its coasts.
