Flanked by mountains and a pine forest, Plage de Palombaggia is ranked as one of the 10 best beaches in all of Europe. Pink granite surrounds the beach adding to the rich variety of terrain and colors. This protected site has powdery, golden sandy beaches stretching for 2 km (1.2 mi) that are ideal for relaxing, sun bathing, and swimming in the crystal-blue sea.
Given its immense popularity, the beach gets crowded during the summer, especially at the northern narrow end because it's closer to the parking lot. The beach widens as you go south and tends to be less busy. Going early will ensure that you get an ideal spot to set up, and find easier parking. Lifeguards watch swimmers during the peak summer season making this an ideal spot to bring active children. You'll have many opportunities to enjoy water sports with several rental and guide companies that provide snorkeling, wind surfing, kayaking, pedal boating, and diving.

Very nice beach in Corsica.
The most popular beach on the Island of Corsica is the Plage de Palombaggia, prized for its wide swath of soft, fine white sand and crystal-clear waters. The drive that leads to this idyllic stretch of beach is noteworthy in itself, with enormous red granite rocks and maritime pine trees adding to the coastal scenery. Because Palombaggia Beach is one of Corsica's finest, it can be crowded. Tourists could avoid the crowds by visiting off-season and still enjoy the wonderful sunny weather and stunning scenery. Palombaggia Beach lies 10 kilometers from Porto Vecchio, a historic fortified town with pleasant town squares, outdoor cafés, and a scenic marina. Corsica has other beaches, too. Also north of Porto-Vecchio and not far from Palombaggia are the beaches of Tamaricciu and Santa-Giulia. The longest is at Calvi, where the sand stretches for several kilometers, and to its north, the little resort towns of Algajola and l'Ile-Rousse have long beaches, both connected to Calvi by a tourist train.
