Desert des Agriates, Corsica

(4.6/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • Seen on board the 4 x 4 connecting Plage du Lotu to Plage de Saleccia, the desert Des Agriates encloses everything beautiful is there in the wild and rugged Corsica. Shrubs more or less high, Red Earth and hostile, dry wind and feel that in the world there are still corners where man has ruined what had it as a gift!

  • Cross of step going from Cap Corse to Calvi or vice versa, barren landscape but colorful, with some deviations, such as Ostriconi Beach to the West, while for Lotu recommend using sea transportation from Saint Florent.

  • If you start from St-Florent direction Calvi, worry the tower. It's beautiful. An impression of prehistoric lunar landscape. No need however to make a visit special or exclusive. There is already so much to see in Corsica!
