    I'm ferrying my bike over to Corsica, then Sardinia in late October for 5 days of riding. Planning on camping as much as I can. Anything I absolutely must do there? TIA!

    What are you riding and what ports are you sailing?
    Corsica Mt Cinto and the D84 road is good followed by D81 heading south where there are some stunning rock formations herehttps://www.google.com/maps/place/L...346073caec488737!8m2!3d42.2486174!4d8.6601019
    Bonifacio is worth a wonder around to find the gun emplacement and stairway to the sea.

    Sardinia
    Capo Caccia on the West coast for some easy to get to spectacular sea cliffs and cave, and just north of there Cala del Turco you can ride dirt roads down the little coves for some sea swimming. The following dotted route is a dirt track if you're suitably biked.

    Five days isn't long, when we went we had two weeks and then went on to Sicily and back up through Italy.

    If you're in Sicily 18-19th there is this if you're in to such things https://www.rallycostasmeraldastorico.it/en/the-rally/

    Have fun and thanks for reminding me of my trip :-)

    5 days isn't doing the place any justice..waaaay too much to see and do.(and eat and drink and photograph and discover and check out history and ...and....).
    LOTS of "must-see's", but no time for it.

    That would be Sardinia, not Sicily.

    Pic taken in 1978 on the first rally - it went right by my house just north of Tempio Pausania. I have NO idea why I didn't take more.

    Oh yes, thanks for correction. Must have been great having such a rally pass your door.

    I'd do some research on camp sites which are still open that time of the year. You might have to do some stealth camping or use B&Bs here and there ...

    I always try wild camping first, then resort to paid campgrounds if I've run out of options :)

    Nice photos! Wish I had more than a week, but it is what it is.... taking my bride to Paris for 5 days leading up, so my riding days have been shortened. Hoping to hit Sardinia up again next spring during my north Africa ride.

    There’s a pretty cool little campground just a few kilometres north of Bosa, very basic, and cheap! Lovely beaches and a friendly bar with excellent pizza!

    Corsica is really nice = as nice as different to Sardinia .
    A ride to not miss is the "Desert des Agriates" , dirt road that after San Fiurenziu arrive to Saleccia bay and beach , also worth the detour is the "Cap Corse" ride, lot of good views and possibility of a gravel shortcut to Nonza - very large beach (unusual for place) made with Asbest mine sterile.
    Corte and San Bonifacio also worth the visit.

    Anyway, you may spend a month in Corse and two in Sardinia and not be bored...
