Santa Giulia Beach, Santa Giulia

3.6
#2 of 115 in Outdoors in Corse-du-Sud
With pearly white powder-soft sands and an aquamarine sea, Santa Giulia Beach is sure to take your breath away. The large lagoon-style sea is quite calm and shallow, allowing you to wade out to the small reef areas. The dazzling colors alone are amplified by the surrounding mountains and pines tree forests. As dazzling as any Caribbean beach, this is a paradise for water sport enthusiasts too. You can paddle a kayak in the knee-deep water, or hire a snorkeling guide to bring you out to the reef at the south side of the crescent.

As an ideal beach for small children, this area gets quite crowded so it's a good idea to arrive early for a prime spot. In the center of the beach is a bar restaurant with plenty of shade; a quieter bar is located on the northern end of the beach.

    Beautiful beach of white sand and turquoise water. It is long but little sand or my can get down with towels. It was piled up on each other. Lots of chips of trees in the water and the edge of the sand.

    What a beach! Everything is beautiful. The beach is embraced by two arms of Earth that give the whole a pleasant feeling of quietude, mixture of calm and serenity. The small pontoon, essential to any good photo is a real asset and will offer vacationers a wonderful landscape similar to those which we dare not dream because too far or unaffordable.

    Of all the beaches during our stay, this one remains my favorite! Clear water and turquoise, apparent rocks d where jump, long beach... I love! The curmudgeon will tell that this lack of sand (hard floor) and the beach smells bad but it must learn and you will discover that this is due to banks of algae that dry in the Sun. Their goal is to preserve the beach after the season Parking at € 5 If you do not want to walk. Go there and you will love!

    Watch out! This beach is currently covered with THE MOST smelly seaweed. There are parts you can't even cross as it is so bad. I was amazed that for such an important attraction for Corsica that nothing was being done about it. Then I spotted one little digger looking very ineffectual. I rented a house nearby as I heard the beach was so good but I am not going back. Very disappointed.

    Nice white sandy beach with blue sea. Snorkeling is nice with some rocks to explore in the sea 100 meters from the coast. The only issue was the abundance of sea weed on the beach and in the sea.

    Beautiful beach but, a lot of tourists there. The problem in summer is that if you go at the end of summer, water isn't clean enough to enjoy it, so go in July or first week of august.

    Very nice beach, nice views. The waves aren't very high usually, and the water is shallow near the beach, which makes it ideal for families and people who would like to learn windsurfing. Bars and restaurants are also available.

    A lovely beach, one of the few on Corsica that are managed (with sunbeds, umbrella and a bar/restaurant). On the weekend it is though almost impossible to get a sunbed, as they all are booked, even though at least until 3pm they are mostly unoccupied.
