Our opinion on the Grand Capo Beach

Adresse of the Grand Capo Beach : Capo Di Feno D111B 20000 Ajaccio

Ajaccio’s Grand Capo Beach lies in the Minaccia coves northwest from the centre of Ajaccio, above the Sanguinaires Islands. This large sandy beach extends for 1 km. It is one of the favourite spots for surfers. In rough seas, it is dangerous for swimming. For those looking for an untamed corner in Ajaccio, it is in our opinion one of the most beautiful beaches, although in recent years, there are several beach huts that spoils the untamed appearance (refreshments available). Note that on the far left, there is a nudist area.

Access to this beach is by small paths. To get to this beach from the centre of Ajaccio, take the Sanguinaires road for about 8 km and turn right on D111B (marked Minaccia) for about 3 km. Then, on the left, you will find indications on the beach (beach huts panels). From there, you have a dirt road that arrives on a large carpark. You can also access it at the end of the Sanguinaires (“tour Parata” parking) on foot in 2h30.
