Our opinion on the Balistra Beach

Adresse of the Balistra Beach : Giannone 20169 Bonifacio

Balistra Beach in Bonifacio is located north of the Gulf of Sant'Amanza. It is accessed through a track in bad condition (it takes 15 minutes by car from the national road to the edge of the beach) this beach is wild and bordered to the north by a pond.

The beach is divided into two areas. The area accessible by car is the north beach. It is supervised in summer and accessible to disabled people. There is a hut and mattress rentals. The beach ends in a stream.

The south part is wilder and ends at the cliffs, much to the delight of Para gliders.

This beach is also a popular spot for practicing kite surfing or windsurfing when the sea is rough (East wind).

This beach is quite hard to find, as it is not indicated (only a sign for the restaurant). From the Bonifacio roundabout reaching Ajaccio, take the national road 198 towards Bastia for 6 km then turn right on a dirt road. After 2 km on the track (quickly in bad condition but one can go through with an average car), there is a free car park on the beach.
