Our opinion on the Cala di Recisa - Acciolu Bay

Adresse of the Cala di Recisa - Acciolu Bay : Ostriconi - Sentier des Douaniers 20226 Palasca

Acciolu Bay is located south of the desert of the Agriates. There are several small sandy coves at the foot of steep hills. The environment is beautiful with turquoise water and sandy seabed. These coves are unfrequented (the first is called Cala di a Recisa), one is often alone on the beach, and some boats are moored in the bay. However, one has to avoid it when the sea is rough because swimming is dangerous.

It is accessible only on foot via the coastal footpath (or by the sea), and the starting point is the car park of Ostriconi Beach (see our directions to find it). One must cross it in a northerly direction, and cross the dune to reach Vana Cove. The coastal footpath continues from the inside, past the ruined barn. The panorama is unobstructed towards Acciolu Bay. Trails come down the creeks.

Beach in Acciolu bay in Desert of Agriates - Corsica

This is Acciolu Bay in the desert of the Agriates (Ostriconi area). There are several white sandy coves there.

Cala di Recisa - Desert of Agriates - Corsica

This is the first cove, Cala di a Recisa. The beach is narrow but the sand is superfine and white, and the water turquoise. We're in paradise.

Creek in Acciolu bay in Corsica

There are several small coves throughout this bay. Attendance is very low.

Beach near Corbu tip - Corsica

There is a new creek towards the tip of Corbu. It is less interesting in our opinion because it is often covered in Posidonia and seabed is very rocky (swimming is quite difficult).
