To discover these beaches, you have to get lost along the Corsican paths or take to the sea in search of secret coves.

They hide behind colourful hills of brown chestnut trees, soft green fields and purple lavender.

The Calanques de Piana are a beautiful escape into a wild region, populated by rare birds and overflowing with underwater life. The only way to discover its gorgeous coves is by sea. Board a sailboat with your hair in the wind and salt on your skin to discover its secluded beauty. The best time to visit is in the afternoon when the pink hue of the rocks is at its peak.
