I would highly recommend visiting Saleccia beach! One of the most beautiful beaches in Europe! Unfortunately, we had a very bad experience with "Le Popeye", the taxi boat operator. While we had booked (and already paid a decent amount!) for a trip visiting both the...More

Just returned from a day trip to Saleccia... it was fantastic! Such a beautiful beach with picture postcard water made all the better by the absence of beach bars and sun beds. Despite what I read in other reviews there is a restaurant about 200m...More

So after reading hundreds of reviews we finally decided to go ahead and do this with our little car across dirty road. And you know what....after 2 hours we actually made it. It was totally worth. We have travelled all around Corsica and the beach...More

This beach is definitely worth the visit even though it can get a little busy with boats and people. White sand and warm crystal waters make this a mini paradise. We went in the August and yes it got busy but you still had personal...More
