Plage de Palombaggia, Porto-Vecchio

(4.1/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
Flanked by mountains and a pine forest, Plage de Palombaggia is ranked as one of the 10 best beaches in all of Europe. Pink granite surrounds the beach adding to the rich variety of terrain and colors. This protected site has powdery, golden sandy beaches stretching for 2 km (1.2 mi) that are ideal for relaxing, sun bathing, and swimming in the crystal-blue sea.

Given its immense popularity, the beach gets crowded during the summer, especially at the northern narrow end because it's closer to the parking lot. The beach widens as you go south and tends to be less busy. Going early will ensure that you get an ideal spot to set up, and find easier parking. Lifeguards watch swimmers during the peak summer season making this an ideal spot to bring active children. You'll have many opportunities to enjoy water sports with several rental and guide companies that provide snorkeling, wind surfing, kayaking, pedal boating, and diving. Plage de Palombaggia is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Porto-Vecchio Edition.

  • It was inevitable. Unfortunately the complete opening to mass tourism has meant that places once accessible by some discomfort have become a destination accessible to everyone and everything. Then coaches and many, many cars. Still a valuable destination has lost its original charm. The same is true of Santa Giulia, Rondinara, unfortunately.

  • Quite a narrow strip of beach, badly equipped but the whole of Corsica. The water is clear and beautiful. Be sure to visit! Just have to keep in mind that morning on the beach and in the evening from there is quite an impressive Cork)
