Desert des Agriates, Corsica

4.7
#6 of 23 in Nature in Corsica
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.

  • Avoid venturing in when it is too hot, but early and late season this is the perfect coastal walking. Take water and a picnic as you wont find anything enroute, simply superb - especially as a family.  more »
  • Dreaming of beaches? No need to cross the Atlantic or the Pacific for this! The desert of Agriates offers beaches worthy of the name. And if you like hiking, here you will be served. Lotu Beach and the beach of Saleccia, small course of hikes are accessible for beginners and experts!

  • Not to be missed! We visited the desert of agriates walk from St Florent (beach of the roya). I advice all to start to the Cove of Fornali as the path from the beach of the roya was closed (so we've unfortunately lost 30 min)! This trip offers beautiful landscapes through the maquis, a sublimely turquoise Beach, mountains... Rather, the trail is well marked. No particular difficulty for the realization of this walk (no vertical drop), if it was only the distance and the duration of the ride. If you are passing to St Florent, load your cameras, put on your best walking shoes and go (remember drinking water)!
