South Corsica’s most beautiful beaches

Do you love turquoise waters, fine whites and coves? Large stretches of beach bordered by pine forests? Southern Corsica is bursting with beach treasures, both wild and developed, reminiscent of the Seychelles or the remote corners of the Californian coast. Here’s a totally subjective overview…

Palombaggia Beach

It’s Porto-Vecchio’s picture postcard. Crystal-clear waters, gradations of blue, a breathtaking view of the Cerbicale islands… To spend a few hours in Palombaggia is to enjoy a unique panorama, with a fine sandy beach lined with pine trees, and a multitude of coves stretching for some ten kilometers. Here, idleness is the name of the game: put your towel down on the edge of the pine forest and discover its distinctive scents. A real vacation fragrance.

Fautea Beach

Just outside Sainte-Lucie de Porto-Vecchio, you can’t pass Fautea without stopping at this wind-sheltered cove, which feels like a cocoon. If you look up, the Fautea tower invites you to take a hike. If you climb it, you’ll have a view of the two beaches it overlooks: Fautea and Lavu Santu. The larger, wild beach leads to the mouth of the Cavu after a short walk.

Santa Giulia Beach

You’re bound to have seen it in advertisements or music videos: the beach at Santa Giulia, with its turquoise waters and fine sand, is the stuff of dreams, and its extremely Instagrammable pontoon will enable you to take photos that will be the envy of many. In a two-kilometer cove, the landscape is reminiscent of Thailand. Shallow waters, beach restaurants and water sports will keep you entertained. Behind Santa Giulia, a pond where pink flamingos can be seen in winter.

A Chiappa beach

At Chiappa, it’s a beach where you’ll arrive rubbing shoulders with cows and horses frolicking in the nearby fields. Where tranquillity is not an empty word. The beach is small, rocky and often frequented by posidonia, but it offers a magnificent panorama nestled in a wilderness. It’s not a postcard, but an authentic spot, popular with locals in winter. Nearby, a naturist campsite also boasts a beautiful sea view.
