Take the little "train" from the city and go up to the light-house. There you have a wonderful 360 degree view. The guide is so funny and he knows everything about Ile Rousse and more.

A small walk from town, this is the perfect spot for a picnic or a evening walk to check out the sunset.

The walk up to the Ille Rousse lighthouse is easy but gives a wonderful view of the stunning Corsican coastline and the mountains inland. A definite must.

We stayed at the Pietra hotel very near of the lighthouse. We walked just before we went out for diner in the hotel (recommended!!!) the walk is easy, the views are ok, but nothing really out of the ordinairy. Go there durong sunset, would be the best time. Lighthouse itself is not worth mentioning.

Lovely view from high above of the ocean. The day at the beach was the favorite part of my trip. Calm clear blue water.

This is a lovely place to walk up to in the evening. We went up twice recently once in a high wind (to be avoided!) and once on a sunny calm evening (Much better!) It's an easy climb on a made up road with lovely views on the way and from the top you can see for miles over sea... More
