The Sunday Times has listed the top 20 beaches in Europe, and Palombaggia in the south of Corsica has been included. Here’s what the Sunday Times says about the beach:
“The TV advert for this beach might say: “There’s clear, then there’s Palombaggia clear.” The water here puts the Seychelles to shame. What a backdrop, too: pine forests right up to the sand, craggy rocks like natural piers into the sea, sandy cafes serving moules and vin blanc for lunch. As with any French paradise, consider August off limits - better to go in late summer, as Corsica stays warmer for longer - but limited parking among the pine trees means that some parts of the beach are quiet even in high season. Take your camera: if you cut out the French cafes, people will think you went to the Maldives on your holidays.
Best for: those still saving to get to the Indian Ocean.”
If you’re interested in sampling the beach for yourself, take a look at the accommodation available in L’Extreme Sud. To read the article in full visit http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/travel/holiday_type/beach/article6989680.ece
