Our opinion on the Finocchiarola Beach

Adresse of the Finocchiarola Beach : Sentier des douaniers 20247 Macinaggio

Finocchiarola Beach in Cap Corsica is the first accessible beach from the coastal path from Tamarone Bay (possible access by car through a track). From the latter beach, a 20-minute walk is necessary to reach this haven of peace. Attendance is almost non-existent. The view of Finocchiarola islands (nature reserve) is beautiful and one can see from the beach the ruins of the tower on the previous island. This beach is wild; there is therefore a layer of Posidonia (underwater flower often wrongly compared with algae).

The easiest and fastest way to access this beach is to park at Tamarone Beach, then take the sentier des Douaniers on the left. A 45-minute walk is needed. It is also possible to leave from Macinaggio harbour but it is one hour longer.

As one can see on this picture, this beach is covered in a mixture of earth and pebbles. Not ideal...

This is a view of Finocchiarola Islands: the first on the left is Terra island, the second in the centre (in front of the tower) is Mezzana and the last one with the ruined tower is Finocchiarola. This reserve was created in 1987 to protect rare species of seabirds (Yellow-legged Gull, Audouin Gull and the European Shag).
