Economy and Infrastructure

Ghisonaccia is connected to the network of national roads. Between 1888 and 1943 the place was connected to the network of the Corsican Railway (CFC), whose eastern line between Casamozza (where this branched off from the main line) and Porto Vecchio through the plain on the east coast. In September 1943, this railway line was largely destroyed by the retreating German Wehrmacht and was not rebuilt, but the station building has been preserved and is still inhabited.

Beginning in the early 1980s, a few holiday complexes were built on the coast between the Fium Orbo and the Pinia nature reserve.

In the municipality there are controlled designations of origin (AOC) for brocciu , honey (Miel de Corse - Mele di Corsica) , olive oil (Huile d'olive de Corse - Oliu di Corsica) and wine (Vin de Corse or Corse blanc, rosé and rouge) as well as Protected Geographical Indications (IGP) for clementines (Clémentine de Corse) and wine (Ile de Beauté blanc, rosé or rouge and Méditerranée blanc, rosé and rouge) .
