Adresse of the Carataggio beach : Rte de Piccovagia 20137 Porto-Vecchio

Carataggio beach (or Carataghju) is located in a nature reserve between the tips of Chiappa and Palombaggia beach. This wild sandy beach, called Tahiti beach, is not indicated. Virtually unexplored, there are mostly nudists (the campsite is located near the tip). There is a small pond surrounded by reeds by the beach. It is located in a very pleasant environment and the beach is secluded.

Access to the beach is through the road leading to Palombaggia (Piccovaggia drive). Coming from Porto-Vecchio, take the direction of Bonifacio. At the intersection for Ajaccio, turn left towards Palombaggia by Piccovaggia. Drive for 9 km. At the end of Piccovaggia locality, drive for 400 meters after the bend then park. A path goes off to the left through the woods. It takes 15 minutes on foot to get to the beach (easy).
