Octopussy (Calvi)

The calm waters in the bay beyond Calvi are home to one of the island's most pleasant beaches, Plage de Calvi. Here, Octopussy offers an amazing restaurant and beach bar experience. Whether you're there for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or evening drinks, Octopussy is the perfect spot to unwind and enjoy the surroundings.


Corsican cuisine has historically relied heavily on local products and ingredients, and those traditions are still very much alive today. Seafood is understandably pervasive, but meat, particularly pork, is an island staple, famous worldwide for its characteristic flavour. Local animals are fed a steady diet of chestnuts, another ubiquitous Corsican ingredient, and maquis herbs.
