    One of the most beautiful beaches in Corsica!
    This is definitely one of the most gorgeous beaches in Corsica - and one of the longest! Perfect turquoise water and white sand. There are a few bars on the beach where you get snacks (even a proper lunch but a bit pricey), ice cream and cocktails. In addition the beach is supervised by lifeguards. Tipp: be there early (at approximately 9:30 am) to get one of the rare parking spots near the beach! If you are too late you won’t get a parking spot and you have to walk down a road for 15 minutes (imagine walking the road uphill after the beach day)

    Beautiful but as expected crowded in August
    Beautiful clear water. Perfect for families. Although was very busy in August. Impossible to rent to an umbrella and chairs. To escape the crowd, we walked to the far right end of the beach and found a quiet and secluded spot on the rocks with easy access to the sea.

    Another nice beach
    Very long beach, with several entrances, some close to the beach, others probably quite a walk. We were late, so could park (for free) very close, however it looked like it had been quite a lot more busy and therefore longer walks). Beach is sandy, white, water blue and warm, like most Corsican beaches.

Beautiful white sandy beach with coffee but very crowed in August. Best to go in late afternoon to enjoy the beauty after people start to leave.
Parking can be challenging either free on the side of road (make sure there is no yellow line) or hourly parking.

We were surprised how clear the water was, compared to Italy and France this place looks near pristine.

The beach and the sea are magnificent, however we couldn't manage to get sunbeds and umbrellas when we arrived at 11 AM on a Saturday nor at 4 PM on a Friday afternoon. (I think it is possible to book for the sunbeds, which seems to be necessary. Two sunbeds and an umbrella cost about 30 euros) If you can't get a sunbed, it is hard to find some shade before 1PM, when some trees start to give you reasonable amount of shade.
There is a huge area to park, especially if you park by the restaurants on the southern end of the beach, and although parking is approximately 10 euros, if you eat at the restaurants, you can eat the whole parking fee. (Say the parking guy, you want to eat at the restaurant even if not, otherwise you might not get a place if it gets busy). If you don't want to pay for parking the northern end has a large free parking place (although it gets very crowded), or you can park by the road (about 3-5 minutes walk to the beach).
The restaurants are nice and priced similarly to those in the city but they also offer similar quality.

Beautiful beach. Shallow, crystal clear waters, white sand. Plenty of public space as well as chairs for rent. A few good restaurants in the area as well.

An amazing place. Crystal clear water and white sand. This is the place to be. You can rent a sunbed from one of the restaurants or you can just lay on the sand.

This is the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. Clear, blue water, but get there early, as parking is difficult and costly close to the beach.

For us, this is the most beautiful beach in Europe. Cristal clear water, fine white sands, and - if you walk a bit away from the crowds that glue together close to the parking lots - with enough space for you and your family to spend a beautiful quiet day at the beach. Attention though: there is not a lot of shadow, one or two sunshades are mandatory!
