Weather Averages for Corsica in May
Averages for Corsica in May
The true start of the summer season begins in May. Temperatures have warmed to a pleasant daily average of 60.3°F (15.7°C).
Average low temperatures are still comfortable at 51.8°F (11°C), while the days can be as warm as 69.8°F (21°C) for the high on average.
Precipitation is down to only 1.58” (40.2 mm) for the month, with the majority of the rainfall coming on only 8 days of the month.
Visitors can now enjoy up to 10 hours of sunshine each and every day,
compared to the significantly shorter days of the winter months of November,
December, and January.
With this change of season comes a month
dedicated to nature. In Corsica and in nearby
towns, all of the celebrations and festivals during the month of May are
inspired by nature and the outdoors.
These, naturally, are held outside and are picturesque scenes that one would assume can only appear in film. Not so, but a May visit is the only way to ensure that you see these festivals for yourself.
In addition, the sea has now warmed enough for visitors to enjoy the beaches. Windsurfing, sailing and boating, snorkelling, scuba diving, swimming and sunbathing are just some of the beach activities that you can enjoy at this time of year.
