There is certainly no shortage of beaches in Corsica, with its stunning 1000km coastline. Spend your time discovering the picturesque sandy beaches available to you on the island when you stay at San Lucianu Beach Resort with Mark Warner.
You don’t need to go very far to find beautiful golden sand and crystal-clear waters. San Lucianu Beach Resort is ideally situated on a long stretch of beach, perfect for watersports enthusiasts. Whether you want to try your hand at sailing or windsurfing, you're in the ideal location.
San Lucianu Beach Resort is also located a short 10-minute stroll from Moriani-Plage. The beautiful sandy beaches and turquoise waters are perfect for all the family. Spend the day playing in the sand, splashing around in the water, and if the kids get tired of the beach, there is a monitored play area for them to enjoy.
The stunning Plage de Saleccia lies on the northern coast and is known as one of the most deserted strips of white sand on the island.
A great way to visit this little area of unspoilt paradise is by boat. A boat taxi can drop you off and come back for you a few hours later. Alternatively, you could hire a 4x4 as you would need to do some off-road driving - a normal car wouldn’t do.
Why not make a day of it and pack everything you need for a relaxing day away? Remember to pack some food and drink as the nearest restaurant is 10 minutes away through the forest. Don’t forget to bring a parasol, this is a must for everyone, but especially if you are going with children.
As you can imagine, the beach is not overly populated although it tends to get busier in August during the peak season.
In the next bay along from Saleccia is Lotu Beach, which is actually comprised of two separate beaches known as Little Lotu and Big Lotu; both of which largely remain undeveloped.
The beach itself is peaceful and calm, perfect for a day relaxing in the sun. Why not try out snorkelling? The stunning turquoise waters are ideal to do some underwater exploring.
As with Saleccia, it is recommended that you bring your own food and drink and a parasol is a must. There is however one restaurant here (La Cabane du Lodu) that is highly rated among locals. Enjoy some time in the shade while enjoying dishes such as refreshing salads and grilled prawns with an unbeatable view. It’s worth remembering that like many remote restaurants, it is cash only.
Palombaggia is one of the most widely known beaches in Corsica. For many, it is considered the finest beach on the entire island, which is quite something. The crystal-clear waters are said to stay shallow for several meters out, making it an ideal location for water activities with the kids.
Should you want to take a break from sun worshipping, there are a few shaded restaurants on the beachside to take a break and grab a drink or snack.
The beach is close to the port town of Porto-Vecchio, the perfect place to head for a wander after your trip to the beach.
