    It is a beautiful beach, one of the best in Corsica or even in Europe. Only complaint, we went in September and the parking lots were closed, so parking was not easy.

    We sailed across from Sardinia and preferred this to the islands off Sardinia as it was much quieter and more peaceful. The water was crystal clear, incredible fish life so we snorkelled for hours. Cute beaches and rocky headlands to explore on foot. Such a peaceful place to sleep on anchorage

    We find Santa Guilia better than Palombaggio Beach.
    The water is calm, clear and shallow for quite a long distance. Perfect for children.

    My wife and I are currently visiting Calvi - staying at the delightful Hostellerie de L’Abbaye (Review to follow) - and earlier today we visited the famous Citadel.

    Indeed, it’s difficult to come to Calvi and not to spend at least some time in the Citadel. Best to do so - as we did - with a guide to provide some historical perspective but, if not, there are some interesting things to see and some great views of both the Port and surrounding areas.

    Something - in my opinion - not to be missed!!

    If travelling as a foot passenger from Marseille, make sure you go to the foot passenger terminal and not the car entrance (where google maps seems to take you). Unhelpfully, the exact location of the foot passenger terminal isn't on Corsica Linea's website at the time of writing.

    The exact location of the foot passenger terminal is:

    Gare maritime piétons Corse,
    4982 Quai de la Joliette, 13002 Marseille, France

    Other than not knowing where to go to get on the ferry and subsequently nearly missing it, Corsica Linea had really good service, good value food and nice to have a selection of films to watch in our cabin on the Marseille-Ajaccio ferry.

    Very steep however there are handrails to help. I suggest only doing this if in good fitness levels as it's strenuous especially in the heat. You are required to wear hard hats due to the the way the staircase is carved, to ensure safety, however mostly fine unless you are very tall. It costs €5 pp (Sept 22).

    An amazing and impressive landscape!! It is definitely worth driving from Lospedale to Solezara. The forest and rocks are ubíqua!

    This is a beautiful little chapel, well worth a visit. The views are truly spectacular.
    There are some curious reviews on this website, awarding fewer than five stars because the walk up to the chapel is not very well signposted, and there are some tracks that peter out! Difficult to understand how the chapel is responsible for this. Consulting online maps is never failsafe... be prepared! It is a steep, yet very rewarding, climb if you avoid the main road.
    Other reviewers have awarded fewer than five stars because the chapel is closed when they arrive. A simple online check documents the daily opening times.
    This is a lovely walk (both up and down), to a chapel with memorable views.

    Too many boats, driven by too many unrespectful people. The local government should block them before, as it happens in Lotu.

    Really quite a spectacular view and experience.
    One not to miss if you’re visiting the area.
    Bathing in the pools is so refreshing and revitalising!!
    Really relaxed atmosphere too.

    Some advice: Bring some water and something to eat/cash with you as the local restaurant only takes cash, no exceptions.

    Wonderful boat ride to the Grotto but very crowed when you arrive at the Grotto. Many steps to climb up and down so not handicapped accessible or for anyone with walking problems. Some steps are very steep. If you can walk, its very beautiful once inside.

    We went in August, but somehow the beach still had enough space such that it didn't seem overflowing with people. Waters were crystal clear, and the waves were not too strong. A great find!

    Just another fabulous Corsican beach with smooth sand, good food, chaise lounges. Well worth going to.

Hi All
My husband and I are planning our first trip to Corsica for 5 nights next June and I’m having trouble deciding where to base ourselves. We love beautiful beaches, cute towns to explore, and luxury hotels. My French colleagues have told me that it is best to stay in the South near Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio and from the research I’ve done, the beaches look incredible however Calvi and Saint Florent in the North also look gorgeous. We will be renting a car to easily explore but I’m not sure we will want to drive to one side of the island to the other and back for a day trip. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Answer: We stayed in 2017....Algajola, Bonifacio and Corte. We loved the west coast, not very keen on the east coast at all. Yes there are nice beaches but we preferred the unspoilt beaches of the west coast as opposed to the over commercial east. We went to Santa Giulia beach and it was 40€ for 2 sunbeds as opposed to 2 sunbeds in Calvi which were 20€. There was not an inch spare on Santa Giulia, I hated it.
We did like Propriano though, nice harbour, with boat trips, lovely beaches and we especially loved Portiglio beach.
We are returning next year and we are once again staying at Algajola and Corte but with Cargese in the middle as we have no desire to go down south again and we didn’t really give the Piana/ Porto enough time to enjoy, we did like Bonifacio though....the mountainus interior is stunning and well worth a visit. I did do a trip report on here which may help you...not many luxury hotels but that is the charm of Corsica.
