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.

  • I confirm, this is by far the most beautiful beach in Corsica, and one of the largest of the coast is located just below Porto Vecchio, we there went family in full August 2016 and early 10 h, car to park it is the galley along the small road that leads... We had a great day on the beach before going on Bonifacio around 4 pm, we walk far enough and it is perfect for the little ones! take your mask to do some diving, full of small fish that follow you under water, he love the photos! It is very clear and grandiose... don't forget your camera waterproof and camera! that's what we did, and I invite you to watch the 50 photos attached to this return for you give an idea of the site good beach and holiday!
