The splendid and remote beaches of Corsica highlighted in this article:

Bodri

It is a small beach, but with a clear blue sea and not overrun by tourists. It is located west of the most famous beach of Ile Rousse and to get there you must take the N197 choosing the exit to the sea (stopping close to Barangone). His coarse sand settles very quickly and this is also one of the reasons for the transparency of the sea. In the presence of wind become excellent for windsurfing.

Giunchetu

Beach near Bodri and better suited for families and children, since unlike most beaches, here you can get into the sea gradually.

Santa Giulia

It is a fascinating location, especially as it appears to the eyes of those who see it for the first time: an interior lagoon formed by a large strip of white sand and the water, as the rocks here and there appear very smooth. The set gives you the idea of ​​being a small Polynesia. Santa Giulia is located in the Gulf of Santa Manza at the southern coast, in the same area of the most famous Palombaggia.

Palombaggia

It is the most famous beach in Corsica. The beach has fine white sand that particularly stands out against the pink (given by the granite rocks in the proximity) and against the turquoise waters, all beautifully frames a large pine forest. Ideal for a siesta during the hottest hours of the afternoon. The biggest problem is the fact that this set of features attracts the largest number of tourists, especially so in August this beach and literally overrun by vacationers. It can be reached from Porto Vecchio to the south by taking the N198 and turn left at the second exit onto the D859.

Saleccia

It is the wildest beach of Corsica, which makes it one of the most beautiful on the island. Located along the northwest coast, according to the renowned West “Cap Corse”.
