France: Porto Corsica

Ota Corsica’s port is a popular beach destination, at least in the middle of summer. But as we learned when we visited in the middle of November 2016, Porto is a seasonal resort; most everything closes for the off-season. With few tourists the town has a weird “redrum” feeling. If a young Jack Nicholson suddenly appeared, we were definitely bolting out of the town.

Aside from most of the tourist infrastructure being closed, late fall is a good time of year to visit Porto. The temperatures are typically in the mid-60’s. This portion of the Corsican coast is particularly attractive; it warrants its UNESCO World Heritage designation. With so little traffic time of year it would be a great time and place to explore by bike. It’s something to remember for a future visit.
