Today, Cargèse is a picturesque marina but a long time ago it was a Greek colony. Its past has endowed it with a dual culture and two churches: one Roman and the other Byzantine, both built in the 19th century. Nowadays, this little Gulf of Sagone town has become a popular seaside resort because of its atmosphere and white sand beaches. In addition to its beaches, which entice you to relax, the town’s surroundings offer several hiking trails leading to the three Genoese towers watching over the bay. Bathed in a Mediterranean ambiance, this little seaside town features lovely restaurants where you can taste local specialty dishes and several bars where you can sip a drink and admire the gorgeous landscapes of the Corsican coastline, where the mountains flow into the sea.
