This beach is simply not possible to describe with words... the colour of the water, the fine sand under your feet. It felt like being at the Maldives!

So after reading hundreds of reviews we finally decided to go ahead and do this with our little car across dirty road. And you know what....after 2 hours we actually made it. It was totally worth. We have travelled all around Corsica and the beach...More

This beach is definitely worth the visit even though it can get a little busy with boats and people. White sand and warm crystal waters make this a mini paradise. We went in the August and yes it got busy but you still had personal...More
