Ostriconi beach is around 15 km from Ile-Rousse in the direction of Bastia. It is one of the most beautiful beaches in Corsica, at the entrance to the famous Agriate desert, known for the picture-perfect coastline.
It can only be accessed on foot from a footpath which leads off the main road, and from which you will have a breath-taking view. The 800m of fine sand and white sand dunes make this place absolute paradise for holidaymakers and the locals of central Corsica.
This beach is located at the mouth of the river bearing the same name, it is surrounded by a wild preserved landscape and is far from any signs of civilisation. Even the cows love to laze around here…
At the end of the beach you will find the beginning of the sentier des douaniers (path of customs officers) which leads to Saint Florent passing by the superb beaches of Ghignu and Saleccia. Three intensive days which guarantee unforgettable memories!
Keep an eye on the weather forecast, when it is very windy, make sure you follow the instructions given by the lifeguard station because the waves can be dangerous for both adults and children!

How do we get there? From Ile-Rousse, take the highway 30 towards Bastia. After around 15 km, you will see signs on your left for the Camping de l’Ostriconi campsite. Take the old road and park your car. There is a footpath near the campsite which leads to the beach. It takes around 15 minutes on foot. Make sure you have suitable footwear.
You may have to cross over the river which flows into the sea here.
The beach is supervised in the summer
