Sainte Restitude… the perfect seaside resort
A far cry from the crowds of the bigger beaches, Sainte Restitude is a small sandy cove which is only a few hundred metres long. There is a fabulous view from here from Caldanu Point all the way to Calvi Bay. It really is a magnificent view, with the rocks and the sea stretching out to the horizon. When it isn’t too windy, the gentle slope here means it is ideal for families, so that children can paddle in the sea to their heart’s content.
However, if you prefer the comfort of a sun lounger in the shade of a parasol. You can hire one at the “le Pain de Sucre” beach hut.
The sand at the beach of Sainte Restitude is perfect for searching for the famous shell the eye of Saint Lucie. If you keep turning over the sand and then stroke it gently you might just catch a glimpse of this lucky shell.
So come on, let’s go?
