Trip Planner: Europe / France / Corsica / Corse-du-Sud / Porto-Vecchio / Plage de Palombaggia
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. PutPlage de Palombaggia into our Porto-Vecchio road trip planning site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
Plage de Palombaggia reviews
It is a beautiful beach, one of the best in Corsica or even in Europe. Only complaint, we went in September and the parking lots were closed, so parking was not easy.

Definitely overrated place. Corse have much more beautiful beaches than this one. Don't get me wrong - it's still worth to visit but don't get disappointed looking on photoshop pictures. Usually very busy and you have to leave car on leading road and walk at least 1.5km.
This is, to me, the best beach in Corsica. The dand is white and thin, the water very clean and light blue. You can park very close to the beach if you get there early (before 10am) otherwise there are parking on the street and with a 10-15min walk (very easy) you get there anyway. Around 11 till 5pm is a bit crowded but still there's plenty of space.
Although the weather was very windy and not suitable for swimming, you can see that it is a great beach, with white sands and clear water. The space is not much, so maybe there are problems during high seasson.
Beautiful long beach. Parking is a challenge but possible if you arrive early. Keep your flipflops/sandles on when up near the trees, sharp spines that fall from the pines into your feet are no good.
Despite being one of the most touristic beach in the island, it is very nice. Try to go early so can avoid the crowds.
