The best beaches in Corsica

Saleccia
The fact that summer is ending does not mean that we have to forget about the beaches. In fact, if you have holidays in September you can still enjoy the sea in many areas of the Mediterranean, for example, on the French island of Corsica, known in France as the "Island of Beauty".

Corsica is not only one of the most mountainous islands in the entire Mediterranean Sea, with peaks that exceed 2,000 meters in height, but it also has a unique natural heritage of forests, vineyards, spectacular beaches ... So much so that many of these riches have been declared as a World Heritage Site by the Unesco. The best of all, yes, is that it is committed to sustainable tourism, avoiding the large hotel chains and the large block buildings that we are so used to seeing in many areas of the Spanish coast. Today we want you to know some of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Can you come with us?

Rondinara

Rondinara
The first on our list is the Rondinara beach, considered by many to be one of the best beaches in all of Europe. As you can see in the image, it is a bay shaped like horseshoe, shallow turquoise waters, and white sands. Of course, one of the most surprising things is the presence of cows, although it must be borne in mind that these are completely harmless.


Saleccia

Another beach where cows can be seen is in Saleccia. Surrounded by a forest of Alep pine trees, this kilometer long and difficult to access beach has extremely soft and white sand and crystal clear waters.

Palombaggia

Palombaggia
Another spectacular beach that you can find in Corsica is Palombaggia, located in Porto Vecchio, in front of the Cerbicales islands. You will be amazed by its orange rocks, and the pine trees that will serve as your umbrella. Of course, its waters are really crystal clear, so right after stepping on the beach, you will want to take a dip.

Santa Giulia

Santa Giulia
Also in Porto Vecchio is the Santa Giulia beach, which captivates with its fine white sand and its impressive blue guides. It is an ideal sandy area for families, since there is a marked area for children to bathe in complete safety. In addition, it is a shallow beach. In Santa Giulia you can practice water sports such as kayaking or sailing.


Calvi

Calvi
We cannot forget the beach in the city of Calvi, where there are many bars and restaurants with a terrace where you can enjoy some beautiful views. And it is that the city is made up of colored hills and plantations of olive and lemon trees. The beach, about four kilometers long, has clean sand and waters that invite relaxation.

Cupabia

Cupabia
Another beach that we want to talk to you about is Cupabia, one of the best for taking a dip. It has fine white sand and its waters are so transparent and shallow like most of the island. Being a little isolated, it does not have many services but, without a doubt, it is worth spending a day here.

Lotus

Lotus
Finally, we want to talk about the Loto beach, which has all the ingredients of a paradisiacal beach: clean waters of a turquoise blue, a large expanse of white sand, background vegetation ... Also, being protected and inaccessible by car , keep that air wild that we like so much. To get there you will need about 2 hours of walking or a boat trip. Don't panic if you come across cows resting in the sun.

Below you can see a map with the approximate location of each of these beaches.
