Which is the dream of every traveller who loves sea, nature and relaxation? Pristine white sand beaches, of course. And these are the 9 most beautiful white beaches in Corsica.
The first is one of the most beautiful beaches of Corsica. Three kilometres long, its sand is white. Smoothed rocks rise from the sea and the seabed is shallow for several meters. Palombaggia beach is near Porto Vecchio.
Such as Palombaggia, this beach is located along Corsican south coast. Sandy, Rondinara is “protected” by two rocky promontories at its sides. There are several services available on the beach. Rondinara is easy to reach from Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio.
3. Santa Giulia
The beach could be described using just one adjective: paradisiacal. A paradise made of white sand, turquoise sea and green Mediterranean scrub. This wonderful place is located eight kilometres from Porto Vecchio.
4. Santa Manza
In this case, you will see not a single beach but an entire gulf: Santa Manza is a succession of sandy beaches and small coves. The beaches are very quiet and surrounded by nature. The Gulf of Santa Manza is located about seven kilometres from Bonifacio.
5. San Cipriano
Near Porto Vecchio there is a bay touched by a clear blue sea. The beach is fairly long, enclosed by trees. The whiteness of the sand is almost blinding.
Along the south-west coast of Corsica, there is the small and picturesque village of Sartène. From here, you can reach the beach of Roccapina: the turquoise sea and the beach are overlooked by a rock that resembles a crouching lion.
From those of the south coast, you will see the beaches of Corsican north coast. Plage de Lozari is located in the homonymous gulf, it’s a half-moon shaped beach and its sand is white. Very quiet and surrounded by a beautiful nature, it can be reached from Ile-Rousse.
The desert of Agriates is one of the wildest parts of Corsica. It is here, along the northern coast, that is located the beach of Lodo: with its clear water and its fine white sand, it is a very quiet place.
Among the most beautiful white beaches of Corsica, we must also mention the beaches located in the Gulf of Propriano. The bay is easy to reach from Ajaccio.
