Plage de Saleccia, Corsica

4.3
#5 of 22 in Beaches in Corsica
Off the beaten path, Plage de Saleccia is worth the arduous trip to the long pearly white sandy beach that stretches a little over 1 km (0.6 mi). Juniper dunes to the east separate the beach from the pine forest and the western Padulella Marsh, while the mouth of the small coastal Liscu River lies to the west.

Although accessing this beach is difficult, it's worth it because it is never crowded. The 10 km (6.2 mi) dirt road is accessible from the village of Casta on the D81. It is best driven using a motorcycle, dirt bike, or a 4 x 4 vehicle, or you can consider renting a horse. If you're feeling adventurous, you can rent a boat to visit the beach via the sea in St-Florent, walk the footpath, or take the shuttle that stops at Lodu.

    The essential beach of the Corsica! White sand, turquoise and hot water, what happiness! It is accessed either walk through the Agriate desert, 4 hours of market at least, or boat (shuttles boats from St Florent make the round-trip on the day), or shuttle 4 x 4 in 40 min, starting along the Agriate Desert, can not miss them...

    accessible by sea and by jeep 4 x 4; We got tickets/R with taxi yacht Popeye from Sant florant 15 min. We left at 15/19 30 € per person. quiet journey. Beautiful beach ... with fine sand unlike Lozari that sand was bigger. Só that there is also a bar.

    Accessible to the vehicles 4 x 4... either you have one, you go through a landlord or shuttle, either you come by maritime shuttles. The 4 x 4 is part of the folklore... it takes a little less than an hour to go but the effort is worth it. Clear water, great beach where we walk very far... the beach you dream about when we're at work slaving away without motivation! Prefer the first hours of the day to enjoy a maximum or choose the campsite nearby for are the closest.

    one of the most beautiful beaches of corsica ... I suggest absolutely the tour with local companies was organized by 4x4s, uncertain but it was the best thing. without them and without a car really off road is hard to come here. If you quod or 4 x 4 high with reduced is feasible. the beach is well worth it, but I suggest to get there early because all 12.30 scheduled commencement time x and gets ...

    Beautiful beach with crystal clear water. Hard to find a sea so nice throughout the Mediterranean. Although tourists are many, the beach is wide. The only downside are the many boats anchored a few meters from the shore (rudeness ...) but luckily there is a designated area where boats cannot approach. Accessible only by boat or crossing the desert of Les Agriates with a 4 x 4.
