Elected several times more beautiful beach of France or Europe, Rondinara beach does not disappoint anyone: fine sand, turquoise waters, gentle slope, all sublimated by a case of maquis preserved and adorned with reddish rock.
Plage de Palombaggia
The beach of Palombaggia is a real paradise with turquoise water bordered by dunes shaded by beautiful pines. The road to Palombaggia beach is very pretty.
