- On our way from Bastia to Bonifacio we stopped at this beach because it is one of the most famous beaches of Corsica.
Parking was free and on couple of minutes walk to the beach. Beach is beautiful, sand has a nice colour, water is beautiful and calm and the unique trees on the background gives it a gorgeous setting.
There is no natural shade on the beach so bring something along. There are some sun beds for rental but only around 10/15 while the beach is very populair. At least that was the case on the side we where (Nord side).
There is a beach bar with serves drinks and some food.Written August 13, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Beautiful islands in a natural reserve with a wonderful scenery. Fatntastic swim in crystal clear water in secluded bays with rocks polished by the sea here and there. We rented a private boat for the day to get there and it was well worth it. It can be crowded though...Written June 30, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.

- We find Santa Guilia better than Palombaggio Beach.
The water is calm, clear and shallow for quite a long distance. Perfect for children.Written October 2, 2021
- 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.Written July 1, 2022
- Like those in other Corsican towns, the citatel in Calvi is in good condition. It is nice that you also have very quiet places where you can enjoy the view of the sea. We couldn't find a lot of information about the citadel in the form of a museum or something like that. But it was special to walk and climb through it.Written September 19, 2023
- These scenic stairs were built by Fransiscan munks to access a water source in a grotto by the sea. Very nice attraction to be done with sneakers or barefoot (slippers are not allowed). Beware the 187 stairs are high and steep (45d egrees),sometimes irregular.but absolutely worth it!Written June 27, 2023
- Too many boats, driven by too many unrespectful people. The local government should block them before, as it happens in Lotu.Written August 27, 2019
- 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.Written August 10, 2022
- Lovely spot to go for a walk and a swim. Parked in the car park just beyond the adventure park and took the yellow route down to the bridge and then climbed down to swim in the pools. Return trip took about 2 hours. Need decent shoes if doing that particular walk as scrambling over some rocks. Much easier route if you turn left out of car park and walk down the main path. Parking cost about 5 euros. Would take a picnic if visited again although there is a restaurant near the main part of the poolsWritten July 6, 2023
- An amazing and impressive landscape!! It is definitely worth driving from Lospedale to Solezara. The forest and rocks are ubíqua!Written June 15, 2022
- 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.Written September 1, 2022
- A wonderful valley niched between spectacular high mountains offers wonderful views and numerous opportunities for hiking in pristine natureWritten September 12, 2022
