1. Calvi - La Balagne
Calvi's beach is a sweeping bay of powdered white, ideal for families due to its gently shelving gradient, as well as warm and protected waters. Plenty of restaurants and cafés, some of which serve directly onto the beach.

2. Palombaggia - L’Extrême Sud
Arguably the most famous beach on the island. An exquisite blend of fine white sand guarded by huge red granite rocks, fronted with gorgeous blue seas, and lined with beautiful pine trees.
