Les plages

South of the Gulf of Porto-Vecchio, the beach of Palombaggia and the Bay of Santa Giulia, with the appearance of Polynesian lagoons, are emblematic of the natural beauties of the extreme south. A paradise for water sports.
Between Porto-Vecchio and Bonifacio and Anse de Rondinara and the Gulf of Santa Manza have preserved their wild appearance and still enjoy relative tranquility.
North of Porto-Vecchio the county follows a route between coastline and pine forests. Passing through the Bay of Stagnolu and the tip of the Benedettu, its Genoese tower and its Roman oppidum, it then leads to the small beach of Cala Rossa then skirts the Bay of Saint Cyprien and its turquoise waters until the magnificent gulf of Pinarellu, its Genoese tower and its small marina very lively in summer, So many places with discreet charms where there is a certain sweetness to live in the shade of pine and cork oak forests.

Porto-Vecchio, La Cité du Sel

Built on huge pink Porphyry rocks, the fortifications with their five bastions are now home to the old town and its many small shops.
The exploitation of salt, coal and cork, were at the time the main sources of income of the city. Today it has become one of the most important tourist resorts in Corsica.
The point of Chiappa, topped by a lighthouse and a semaphore, closes the gulf of Porto-Vecchio and offers a panoramic view of the extreme south. The Cerbicale Islands, protected by the Natural Reserve of the Mouths of Bonifacio, can be seen in the distance.
