Lovely white sandy beach with crystal clear waters. Get here early during season for a place to park. Nice concession stand for drinks and food.

We were surprised how clear the water was, compared to Italy and France this place looks near pristine.

This is truly one of the best beaches I've ever been. It's definitely the best in Europe and it's at the same level as those of the Caribbean. It's a bit hard to get there by car and park, but it's definitely worth it to spend the day.

Fantastic beach. This can be hard to find by car, as it is on a very windy narrow road off the main highway. The cut off to the parking area is not well marked. But well worth the effort. Crystal clear water, almost no waves at all (except on stormy, windy day).

Great for children as the water is shallow a long way, however it takes a while to get out of the shallow part in order to swim. It is a clean beach with crystal clear water.

Another beautiful beach to discover in Corse. It's a good point that there is the sand so if you go with kids they can have more fun. It's a pretty busy beach but it's worth to visit it.

Beautiful soft, white sand with a backdrop of lush greenery. Clear, warm water with hardly a ripple - ideal for children. Plenty of free parking at the north end of the beach. A few restaurants offering sun beds & parasols for a fixed price. At Chez Pierre it was 20E for 2 beds & an umbrella & also use of... More

There are much nicer beaches within a drive from here. I was surprised to see how such an average beach gets such high reviews. The worst part is the parking. Don't even think of coming here after 11:00 AM or you will not get parking. Then once at the beach, there are thousands of people crowding the shoreline. There is... More
