Corsica’s Southern Beaches

Corsica is home to some of the best beaches the Mediterranean has to offer. Vimeo user Emeric’s video highlighting the southern part of the island portrays some of the island’s beautiful landscapes. When it comes to Corsica, I believe that the island’s best features are the unnamed beaches hidden all over the island like little pockets of paradise. Imagine renting a bike and discovering these little gems of seclusion. As always, if you do find a hidden beach, be careful and keep in mind that there isn’t a lifeguard. I mean, c’mon, it’s a hidden beach after all. In case you are in need for a quick beach fix here are some beaches in the southern part of the island to check out:

If you are looking for white sands and clear water the obvious choice for you is Roccapina Beach. Be warned, if you are in Corsica during the high season keep in mind that this beach gets pretty packed.

Corsica’s “signature” beach would have to be Palombaggia. That being said, this beach is very popular and, once again, is busy during the summer months. Then again, to me it is a “must see” simply because of the beautiful palette of natural colors; turquoise water, white sands, green pines in a backdrop of red rocks.

Enough of the popular places already, where can you get all of the above with less people? Rondinara is the beach for you. It is less well known and the shallow waters here are also ideal for families with small children.

If you have access to a boat and are willing to really be blown away, check out the Lavessi Isles which boast some of the best untouched beaches thanks primarily to it being a part of the nature reserve. Outfitters are available to take you out on day trips.
