New call-to-action

Calvi Beach

Calvi Beach is a scenic, white sand beach. Its crystal clear waters are framed by a pine forest just beyond the shore. There are a variety of cafés and restaurants on or near the beach if you’re feeling peckish after a swim.

The shallow waters are warm and calm, perfect for children to enjoy the sea. There are also plenty of watersports available if you’re feeling adventurous!


Arinella Beach

As the largest beach in Corsica, this famous beach holds a special place on the island. Equipped with plenty of sunbeds, umbrellas, showers, changing cabins, and lifeguards, this beach is the perfect place to spend the day with family and friends.

It is known for its soft, white sand, warm water, and views of the Corsican mountains. There are also children’s playgrounds and an abundance of bars and restaurants nearby. The kids can play while the adults have a cocktail and lounge in the sun!

Pinarellu Beach

In the heart of a picturesque bay just outside Porto Vecchio, Plage de Pinarellu is surrounded by mountains and pine forests. The centre of the beach lies next to the main street of a village, full of taverns and restaurants to explore. If you want a more peaceful atmosphere, all you have to do is walk a little further down the beach in either direction, and you will have the privacy you want.

If you’d like to get out on the water, rent a boat, catamaran or water scooter for the day! Pinarello is the perfect place to spend a day on the water with family and friends.


San Ciprianu

This beach provides you with the best of both worlds, whatever your taste, you can enjoy your day at San Ciprianu. On the southern side of the bay, you will find lots of infrastructure, with restaurants, bars, and plenty of tourist activities for people young and old. The northern end of the bay, however, is more untamed for those who enjoy being outdoors in a more natural atmosphere. Take time to explore both ends of the bay to get the best of both worlds!

Bodri Beach

At the foot of the Peak of Ginebre, a protected natural area, Bodri has a quaint, idyllic atmosphere. While not too crowded, this beach is frequented by nudists in the summer, and the waters can be too rough to swim in when the wind picks up. If you're feeling bold, this beach is the perfect place to spend your day in a less conventional way on your holiday!


Campomoro Beach

A natural haven, Campomoro has no large buildings and has a beautiful, quiet presence. If you love to hike, start a trail at the foot of a Genoese tower, and wander along the golden sand of the coastline until you come to the lighthouse of Senetosa. This is the ideal place to reconnect with nature and explore Genoese architecture!

Nonza Beach

For a change of scenery, visit Nonza Beach, near Saint-Florent, and set foot on its gorgeous black sand and view of the mountains. Leave your mark by spelling out a message with white stones, and be sure to wear shoes as the black sands can become too hot in the sun. The nearby town of Nonza also has a rich history to explore, and there are several camping sites close by if you want an outdoor adventure.


Mare E Sole Beach

With its fine white sand and pine forests, Mare E Sole is a classic example of a Corsican landscape. Due to its abundance of pine trees, you will have the opportunity to rest in the shade while still being close to the water. This beach also features sun banks, shallow areas of water that allow you to walk far into the sea without getting too deep.

Arone Beach

One of the most beautiful beaches in Corsica, Arone is sure to take your breath away. In a more secluded setting, this beach is never crowded. You can enjoy the stunning views of cliffs and natural landscapes that surround the undeveloped area. If you prefer to unwind in a more calm, private atmosphere, this is the beach for you!


Portiglio Beach

Surrounded by lush hills, green forests, and quaint villages, Portiglio is a picturesque getaway. There are plenty of ways to spend your time here, at the summer bar, tennis court, nearby restaurants, and even snorkelling, or diving. This beach is ideal for large families or groups, as it has many activities that are sure to keep everyone entertained from dawn till dusk!
