“Excellent beach!”

This is a really nice beach located on the west coast of Corsica. The small road leading to this beach is not indicated, so here are some directions: Coming from Sartène you need to turn right after 19km at the Auberge de Coralli. Either you park your car here and take a walk to the beach along the gravel road of about 2km or you dare to drive right to the beach where you will find a (crowded) parking. The road is really narrow and you might prefer to take a walk as especially in the summer you might get stuck. Anyway, when you arrive you will find an excellent beach with crystal clear water.

Not all that easy to find and at the end of a 2km dirt track; well worth it though. A fine sandy beach with turquoise blue water...

simply amazing.. white sand, wonderful sea, wild and not too crowded (even in august).. and no bar or restaurant or hotel to disturb the nature..
anyhow, it is not too difficult to reach it: there is a parking near an hotel/restaurant if you wanna go by foot (but it is around 45 min by walking..). but there is also a dirt-road going very near the beach. there is only a short piece of the road that is difficult, but you can do that if you drive carefully, even if you have a small car! instead, almost no problem for big car and 4x4.
my advice is to go down by car. BUT, one warning: if you go by car, you should arrive to the beach: for me there is no sense in leaving the car half way because there is only a very short piece of the road that is troublesome and then, wherever you park, you should not forget that you will also do the maneuver to go back!

Roccapina is in my humble opinion the most spectacular bay in Corsica. Red cliffs that glows orange in the sunset, sparse emerald green vegetation, cobalt blue water. We anchored our boat in a narrow cleft between tall cliff faces. The beach is great and there are many boats and super yachts anchored just off shore. You have to see Roccapina.

Beautiful water and sands, a relatively wide and gently-sloping beach that's good for young children. There is little in the way of amenities however, i.e. no toilets, cafe, fresh water etc. It's a proper bone-shaking drive on unpaved road for the last 2km - if it's rained recently then the gutters could be brutal for a non-4x4. Exposed to a westerly wind though.
