Morsiglia est une petite commune située sur la côte ouest du Cap Corse à quelques kilomètres au sud de Centuri. Bien que n'étant pas tout à fait au bord de mer, la commune possède une marine : la plage de Mute avec un club de plongée et un camping.
Elle a la particularité d'abriter 6 tours carrées d'époque génoise, anciennes maisons d'habitations des patriciens, dont certaines ont été restaurées. La commune de Morsiglia est connue pour abriter l'un des plus anciens monastères de Corse, le Couvent de l'Annonciation (fondé en 1479), où se tiennent très régulièrement des expositions d'art contemporain.

Morsiglia, qui signifie "mouillage tranquille", fut fondé par les Grecs il y a 25 siècles. 

On y mouillera par vent du Nord à la place de la baie de Centuri au dessus.
Approcher lentement les abords ne sont pas clairs.
