Beaches and resorts in Corsica

There are over 1000 km of Coasts and sandy beaches in Corsica. Unlike the mainland, Corsica coastline is preserved from real estate pressure. The Coastline Conservation authority has nearly 200 km of coastline (Agriates, Testa Ventilègne and Campomoro Sentetosa).

There are many beaches in Corsica. Access is not always easy, but it guarantees peace of mind. From the secluded little cove known only by the locals to the great famous beach, our team tries to show you every bathing site in Corsica. Thanks to our beach maps of Corsica, you can easily find the various beaches of Corsica by following our instructions. Be careful, many of the beaches are not monitored; swimming is therefore at your own risk.

There are several interesting sites in the north of the "Ile de beauté". The most famous beaches of Northern Corsica are in the Gulf of Saint-Florent in the Agriates desert (Saleccia beach), in Cap Corsica (Barcaggio beach) or on the East Coast with long sandy beaches that are more reassuring than the Eastern beaches of the coast of Corsica.

Corsica’s Southern beaches are different from the northern ones. The Gulf of Porto-Vecchio offers some of the most beautiful beaches in Corsica: Palombaggia, Santa Giulia and Rondinara are the most famous. The Gulf of Ajaccio is also rich with Capo di Feno beach in a green area and Mare e Sole beach in Pietrosella.
