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.

  • Really one of the most beautiful beaches of Corsica, don't shout not about roofs at the edge of the desert of the Agriattes, she remains fortunately difficult to access either 4 x 4 or by the sea in Bateauµ. Attention more in addition to boats lay streams of tourists each summer, enjoy as there is still time... but Shh...

  • Beautiful beach, crystal clear water and white sand, heaven! Have to book the descent and ascent by Jeep as the road is not very easy to drive to town. The windy here are rife as in all that part of Corsica. In addition you can make cute sightings as put in photos.

  • Saleccia is one of the most famous beaches of Corsica, definitely a good title. This reputation makes it also one of the most visited, although it is not so simple (and perhaps it is because of this reason that is still wild enough). The easiest way to get there is by boat from Saint Florent to Plage du Lotu and later with 4 x 4 (available from ever boarding of Saint Florent) through the desert Des Agriates (15 min). The truck leaves you at the entrance of a pine forest that has a well marked path to the sea; step by step you can admire the beauty of unspoiled nature, until in the distance, you don't start to glimpse the sea and ... what a show! White beach and swept by a light breeze, Emerald and turquoise water, open spaces that go without invading the privacy of others. Council to refrain until sunset when the colors tend to gold and the beach is less crowded (but careful not to lose the last connecting flight to Saint Florent-the path to return is the same as the round you book in advance, on departure).

  • 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 😊
