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.

  • Very nice spacious beach with great depth, long flat and only then falling off. To see beautiful wide blue under water. To swim further out you see many sea creatures and beautiful fields of green algae on the reef (only partially). Crystal clear and to offer our Earth has all blue tones. Almost white sand and a few beautiful and romantic taverns on the beach. Boating and water sports are also possible. Caution: lifeguard of alla Italia are there (but much less). Bring an umbrella! Access to the beach is somewhat hidden, you didn't find it, because it runs on a narrow sloping and inconspicuous Street. Parking is somewhat tricky because not much space on the road, but it is doable. 1000 times better than Santa Giulia! Very nice beach!

  • Sublime Beach, we were late August in principle a little less tourism, nevertheless it was armored world, so very little room for his towel! Just good for swimming, I recommend instead for a little more space the beach of Rondinara for me is one that exceeds all other beaches!
