Plage de Saleccia, Corsica
(4.3/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I've been to Saleccia sailing this summer. Initially the Park was planned for only one day, but the place we liked it so much that we decided to extend for another day and a half. White sand and crystal clear waters make it one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever been to. Deserves a lot on sunset, because it all takes of beautiful colors, almost fairytale-like as you can see in the photos attached. Being a nature reserve it is forbidden to stay overnight camping on the beach, partly because there is a risk that the forestry sector or, even worse, hired to fix up some "Bill". During the day, however, the beach is crowded and there is no problem. If you want to stay in the area, I recommend the camping "U Paradisu" at 200/300 meters from the beach

  • Pretty, serving at that time, less than 10 people, no ship on the horizon. Big lots of algae to the West of the beach that are not is to remind me of my Brittany but that's normal at this time. Difficult to make photos of postcards that you see in the shops. Don't forget water same end October especially if you have come on foot or by mountain bike. I recommend in classic car, a password question traction but ground breaking, ground clearance and large puddles of water could bring happiness to your mechanic. I left my car at the top and came down by bike (2 h ROUND-TRIP without forcing). If your visit to Corsica is too short, made the impasse there so even more beautiful places on the island.

  • .. .the very many algae at the moment (October 25). Track borrowed with a 4 x 4 qashqai, no problem to switch. The 4 x 4 is not necessarily essential, however a certain height under body is highly recommended because without that big risks of 'touch' in a few somewhat sensitive areas. The beach was very quiet, no boat, we were only about 20 people on the beach.

  • Superb beach, renting a boat is the best way to enjoy it.
  • Plage paradisiaque Incontournable!
  • Such a disappointment. We paid dearly to get into this phantom "free" beach, reachable only by boat or 4 x 4 jeep through a path that is not easy. Once there, the disappointment. "Free" will, but by the rules. In practice this happens: the beach is a public beach, hard to come by. Those coming from the Mainland can only get through an organized transportation (at great expense). Who has a boat comes by sea. And here's the catch: the beach is actually a parking lot for boats and yachts, arriving right on the shore already crowded with people. There is no one who controls that is respected the ban operate the engine in a region crowded with bathers, so it's easy to see children playing in the water while the boats come and go while the engine is running just a few metres from the shore. Besides all this, add the mess, and the fact that the sea is fairly clean, but lacking in any form of life or other item of interest. There is a zone, prohibited to boats, which takes up about a quarter of the length of the beach. In short, in such a place you go if you desert, not if it is full of jerks and I don't know what is common sense. Avoid it, or go there in low season. Maybe, without all the craziness that I found, will regain its charm.

  • Wonderful! A walk of about 45 min from plage du Lodo (which can easily be reached in 30 min boat ride from Saint Florent). White sand beach, about 1 km, Caribbean Sea. In high season, maybe too many boats that are very close to the beach.

  • A beautiful beach, hard tackle... The best is the morning early where you have the beach to yourself alone 😊
