Inspirock Rating:
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.

  • Made 3 or 4 times in mtb (usually parking lot at the top of the dirt road and shot down the bike) and once directly by bike from saint florent! What can I say, fun to go down ... alone (once with then girlfriend took more down than up) sometimes invites you to let go a little the brakes but the bushes after the bend are ready to collect ps: you don't need to be champions in downhill. If you bring water and sandwiches you can enjoy the day at the beach ... not expedient to return too early with the Sun! A few years ago I even went to the Lotus by saleccia but the path was not easy now I do not know. !

  • Nature in the wild. A succession of Rocky Mountains and arbouses to infinity. It looks like one world! It's beautiful and impressive. However attention to trail off the road! They are very rocky and the tracks are impassable without a true 4 × 4!

  • Drove through this area on the journey from Calvi to Saint Florent. Brillint scenery so try to be the passenger. Wish we had had the time to explore the area more fully.
