Our opinion on the St. Francois Beach

Adresse of the St. Francois Beach : Boulevard Pascal Rossini 20000 Ajaccio

St. Francois beach in Ajaccio is located just before the citadel and near the port. It is dominated by a beautiful promenade lined with palm trees on boulevard Lantivy.

This is one of the best placed beaches of Ajaccio located near to the town centre but it is strongly advised to come on foot (very difficult to find a parking space).

Near the citadel and the cathedral, you will find a widest beach. Towards the road of Sanguinaires, the beach then becomes narrower.

The small width of this beach is due to the enlargement of a nearby beach (erosion phenomenon).

Beach of St François

From this view of the beach of Saint Francois, in the summer season, we see that it is impossible to park. Narrow beach but safe for swimming due to the gently sloping beach.  Access by stairs visible on the photo.
