Discover Corsica's top 10 beaches

Calvi beach

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. On top of this, it's inclusive of several restaurants and cafés, some of which serve directly onto the beach.

Palombaggia 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.

Santa Giulia Beach

3. Santa Giulia - L’Extrême Sud

We think the most photogenic of all the beaches in L'Extrême Sud! It sits in a magnificent horseshoe bay with its shallow and translucent water making it the perfect swimming spot for the little ones.

La Roya beach

4. La Roya - St Florent

The main town beach in St Florent can be reached on foot from the port de plaisance or by car just west of the town centre. There are a multitude of water sports available including windsurfing, sailing, canoeing, jet skis and diving.

L'Ile Rousse Bay

5. L’Ile Rousse - La Balagne

A town beach which is generally patrolled, making it ideal for families. It's a fine yellow sand beach and the water is a gorgeous clear blue, plus there are good opportunities for water sports.

Pinarello Sandy Beach - L'Extrême Sud - Corsica

6. Pinarello - L’Extrême Sud

Has a long sweep of soft white sand and is backed by a pine forest, ideal for any members of the party who need shade. This beach is also great for younger children as there is a nice wide stretch of warm shallow water too.

7. Campomoro - West Coast

This beach has fine sand and turquoise shallow water making it an ideal choice for children and for snorkeling. There are also a couple of restaurants on the beach and a water sports centre.
