Corsican is littered with stunning beaches of all shapes and sizes. So naturally we’re off to explore a few of them!
From tiny coves to vast swathes of pure white sand, there’s a patch of sand to suit everyone.
The sands are blissfully empty towards the end of September. It’s our favourite time of year to travel as the weather is still great but the crowds are thinning out nicely.
Green hills and wind blown salty trees back the lovely beach of Ostriconi.
Ostriconi Beach (also called the beach of Perajola) is renowned for its rugged beauty.
It’s wild and windswept, braced by dunes and immersed in fragrant Corsican maquis.
Maquis is a special wild-scrub area of Corsica that covers approximately 20% of the island.
It includes the fragrant curry plant and rock rose to myrte, daisies and various types of mint. When the wind blows over it, the smells are amazing.
As Corsica had seen some bad weather before we arrived, a lot of the beaches were covered in seaweed which detracted from their pristine loveliness.
However Ostriconi was not one of them and its gorgeous sands were weed free!
Look how joy filled we are!!! The water was phenomenally blue and the sun was just the right level of scorching!
