Our opinion on the Napoleon Beach

Adresse of the Napoleon Beach : Promenade de la Marinella 20220 L'Ile Rousse

Napoleon Beach in Ile Rousse is the closest beach of the city centre. A pleasant walk (Marinella) borders it with many restaurants. This beach is covered in approximately 350 meters of white sand. It is relatively narrow, however. Several private beaches and restaurants occupy the central part in summer. Both ends are completely public. Note that this beach is sheltered from the winds (often found in Balagne) and bathing is gently sloping. It is supervised in summer.

This beach is located next to the port, along Charles-Marie Savelli Boulevard. There is a paid car park nearby.
