Beautiful Beaches in Corsica

The Isle of Beauty is full of wonderful beaches and coves, each more magnificent than the last. Some are extremely popular, such as Santa Giulia and Palombaggia, while others are more secluded, such as Rondinara beach, and are therefore pleasant even in high season.
 
We have selected the 10 most beautiful beaches from around the island, to help you to make the most of your stay in one of our luxury villas.

 

Beautiful Beaches in Corsica - Corsica

Little Spérone Beach

In Bonifacio, this idyllic cove is located at the tip of Sperone, facing the island of Piana. It is a beautiful stretch of fine, sparkling sand but it is very busy in July and August, so plan to go early or out of season. Access is relatively easy: from Piantarella beach, follow a short path along the coastline for 15 minutes. If the beach of Petit Spérone is too crowded, you can also walk to Grand Sperone, crossing a golf course.

Arone beach

Arone beach is located 12 km from the village of Piana and offers a sublime view of Capo Rosso. For the historical anecdote, it is on this beach that the Casabianca submarine delivered the first weapons to the resistance in 1943. On the spot, you will find many beach restaurants to enjoy a full day. 

To get there, from the centre of Piana, take the D824 in the direction of Arone, then drive for 15 minutes. As with most Corsican beaches, we advise you to get there as early as possible to enjoy its wild beauty...

The beach of Rondinara

Rondinara beach is without doubt the most beautiful beach in Corsica, thanks to its original shell shape.

The beach of Palombaggia

The beach of Palombaggia is surely the most famous in Corsica and one of the most paradisiacal. Umbrella pines line the turquoise water cove, ideal for providing a little shade at picnic time! Ochre rocks complete the landscape and give it a Seychelles feel. 

To access this beach, which is particularly busy in summer, and to find a place to sit, we recommend arriving early in the morning. And for more peace and quiet, continue past the straw huts and you'll come across some idyllic coves. There is a large pay car park nearby to leave your vehicle.

The beach of Saleccia

Located in the Agriates desert in the commune of Santo-Pietro-di-Tenda, this beach is slightly difficult to access: due to the state of the road, it takes about 40 minutes to reach it with your own vehicle. There are also 4x4 rental companies that offer this service. The beach is in full sun, so don't forget to bring a parasol and something to cool off!

The beach of Barcaggio

The beach is located in the north of Cap Corse, in the municipality of Ersa, and is one of the most charming beaches in Corsica. It is perfectly suited for families as the water level remains very low throughout the afternoon.

What is special about this beach? Down at the end of the beach, you can meet some Corsican cows, basking on the white sand. An unusual experience and very popular with children!

The beach of Capo di Feno

The beach of Capo di Feno is located near the Gulf of Ajaccio and is, according to the tourist website TripAdvisor, one of the most beautiful beaches in Corsica. It is particularly renowned for its wild beauty and crystal clear waters. Due to its geographical position and strong winds, it is home to one of the most famous surf spots in Corsica. We therefore advise you to be careful when swimming! 

There are two options to get there: drive directly to the beach and park nearby, or park in the car park of the Parata site and walk the rest of the way. However, you will need to allow 2h30 for the round trip.
