Great target for a morning run

Cool winds and great views from the top all the way up to Cape Corse. In the morning you'll meet dozens of runners - is perfect as no cars are allowed.

Walk this every day of our holidays.... Never tire of the views. Love it on a windy day especially. I think of this during the winter months at home and it always makes me smile. The blue sky and green and blue water are magnificent! Pop down to the little cove and have a swim or snorkel... It's worth it.

Great view and a good place to train uphill running. We took a swim in the turquoise waters below too. Recommended!

A superb beach, with easy parking.. clear blue water and white sand.. When you have had enough sun a walk to the light house is an easy stroll round the harbour.

We took the tourist train from the market place, which was good fun, up to the lighthouse for some fantastic views. It was a very nice experience.

The. Lighthouse is located on a former island, which is now connected to the Corsica mainland by a small causeway. There are some good views to be had from various vantage points on the light house island. The island is made of a pink type of granite.

Worth the walk out past the commercial port to climb up and get great views of the town, surrounding coast and countryside. Nice breeze when it's hot too.

The lighthouse isn't much but the views are fantastic. We took tourist train up as we had a 2 year old but I imagine the walk would be great.

Such beautiful water everywhere! This rocky hike is worth it, even on a hot day. Very nice views of the sea and the bay from there.

Had a wonderful walk out to the lighthouse in over thirty degrees Celsius and so the opportunity to swim in the delightful cove on the way back couldn't be passed up. Best to swim off the rocks as the cove is stoney and slippy but not even two jellyfish put us off the relief of the crystal clear waters.
