Desert des Agriates, Corsica
(4.6/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Desert des Agriates presents an arid microclimate on 40 km (87 mi) of sandy desert and unspoiled coastline and is visible from space. Rocky cliffs jut out and up from the sands with small oasis ponds scattered throughout. You will not find a town or homes except along the highway, because the desert is an impenetrable environment. Many Mediterranean plants and trees, include heather, arbutus, cistus, myrtle, mastic trees, olive trees, oaks, and maritime pine that date back to the plantations established in the 20th century. Several agricultural plains, groves, and meadows provide sanctuary to wildlife, while rocky Ghignu shelters provide camping accommodations and shared bathrooms for 4-6 people.

  • After a track made in 4 x 4 full of rebounds and crazy laughter we arrived on the fabulous beach. Transparent water, 10 people on the 1.6 km long. Paradise and especially swimming with a 20-degree water at the end of October. To absolutely but on a 4 x 4 otherwise you will make the happiness of the mechanic of st Florent!

  • If your schedule is too busy you can ignore is not the most beautiful corner of Corsica. Otherwise nice ride hybrid bike (ATV joint/vtc) up to the beach of Saleccia. Provide the stuff of repair and water, although end of October it was very hot. There are 24 km ROUND-TRIP, it goes up but other than some passing Nothing nasty. 2 hours round trip. Without rear suspension downhill I was most of the time on the brakes because it's very brittle as ground, I put only 1/4 of an hour for the climb! At that time little traffic (4 or 5 cars) in summer must be the misery with the dust. I do not share the previous opinion regarding the use of classic cars unless you have good discounts on shock absorbers and tires! I'm not with my car, uphill I even overtook a van that was traveling at no. It is doable but nothing that some big puddles reached the middle of the wheel of a 4 x 4.
