Desert des Agriates, Corsica

4.6
#5 of 19 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.

    From the beach of the Roya, plan to drink (2L min / person) and dining because no trade, walking shoe ("damp" passage), sunscreen, bathing suit... by the way of customs, in the direction of the beach of the Lotu (over 10km). Many coves where you can swim. Passage of a Ford (water up to size). 2nd option, take the boat to St Florent Lotu Beach, less wild atmosphere!

    See our reviews posted on the relay of SALECCIA, where we rented two GIANT ATV down to the beach through the desert. The relay of Saleccia is very seriously as well for the 4 x 4 for the ATV. The Grail = the paridisiaque Beach and down we went via AGRIATE escapes, whose offices are in the same relay located to 12 km of saint florent road of the island redhead and 3 minutes from the path of 12 km of slopes

    Between the Ile Rousse and Saint Florent, scenic road on the heights, revealing beautiful landscapes to the sea. Possibility to leave the road for excursions on foot or by 4 * 4 (but not the last week due to the heat and fire risks) but crossing the desert by car on the road evaut suddenly
