A really beautiful and peaceful beach. When we were there (in June) there were few people, and even though the water was cold we still enjoyed it very much.

This is a really nice beach located on the west coast of Corsica. The small road leading to this beach is not indicated, so here are some directions: Coming from Sartène you need to turn right after 19km at the Auberge de Coralli. Either you park your car here and take a walk to the beach along the gravel road... More

Not all that easy to find and at the end of a 2km dirt track; well worth it though. A fine sandy beach with turquoise blue water...

Roccapina is in my humble opinion the most spectacular bay in Corsica. Red cliffs that glows orange in the sunset, sparse emerald green vegetation, cobalt blue water. We anchored our boat in a narrow cleft between tall cliff faces. The beach is great and there are many boats and super yachts anchored just off shore. You have to see Roccapina.

Beautiful water and sands, a relatively wide and gently-sloping beach that's good for young children. There is little in the way of amenities however, i.e. no toilets, cafe, fresh water etc. It's a proper bone-shaking drive on unpaved road for the last 2km - if it's rained recently then the gutters could be brutal for a non-4x4. Exposed to a... More

Our favourite beach after touring several beaches of Corsica. It's not a big as beaches of Polombaggio, but it's further off the beaten track so there's (relatively) less people. Water is warmer and the setting with the rocks behind the beach makes a wonderful cosy setting.

Early September and not only beautiful but empty as well. Very rough road to access though; be warned.
