Nice sandy beach, with a big parking available at about 15 minutes walk. During sommer, the beach is watched. However, you should really bring a sunshade and water with you. You have the possibility to walk along the coast from here, which is really worth doing!
The biggest drawback was the huge amount of dry algae along the sea side...

One of the top-x beaches in North Corsica. Easy parking on big lot, then 10-15 min walk through some woods and then reeds and a ponton bridge across a small river.
Beach is very nice, soft sand, although quite some kelp; mountains in background and aquamarine sea in front!
No facilities so bring umbrella, seats and water. Snorkeling possibilities near the rocks with quite some fish easily visible.

My highlight of our 2 weeks in Corsica was going to Ostraconi beach for the sunset. There is now a big carpark there (well sign-posted once you've turned off the main road), but the beach is virtually empty in the evening. There is a 1km walk along a path to get to the beach, very atmospheric through tall reeds and a final knee-high wade through a still stream (about 5m across). Just remember the way since it will be dark on the way back (we ended up finding ourselves in the local campsite, which just added an extra 15 mins to our walk back to the car)

It's quite a walk down there, but the beach is neither spectacular not practical. View is nice, but no beach bar. Good for kids.

Free Parking was easy to access and use. We went on a very hot day with two small children and hadn't realised the long walk down to the beach and back. . .Take lots and lots of water as the one place to purchase water is very expensive! The beach is beautiful but lots and lots of sea grass making it difficult for smaller children. The water was wavy, quickly deep and I wouldn't let my non swimmer to play without company. . . . The river which we walked through to access the beach was fun, for children to play in and safe! It was a long and hot walk back up to the car

Perhaps I’ve been spoilt by all of the stunning beaches we’ve found in Corsica, but this was one of our least favourite. On the plus side, there is plenty of parking, much of it shaded, thanks to the many trees in the car park. It’s a pleasant 10 minute walk to the beach, wading through some shallow water along the way. The beach was almost empty, even on a Saturday in July. There are lifeguards on duty. We left early and there were a lot of people driving in and walking from the car park as we made our way back, so I’d imagine that afternoons were much more crowded. Come prepared; there are no facilities or shade. There’s lots of sea grass and sea weed, some small waves. The sand in the sea is a not as smooth as on some other beaches. A pleasant morning.

Beautiful beach, long, white sand, much space, not many people.
Dog friendly beach. Dogs allowed on the leash!
The water is very clear, and doesn't get suddenly deep.
The views are spectacular, and several trails leave the beach.
You can reach the beach with a 10-15' walk, first paved road then unpaved trail.

A wide sandy beach with dunes to nestle in if you need a windbreak. No facilities so bring all you need. We saw nude sunbathing at the northern end, so it seems permitted if that's your thing. The coastal path crosses the beach, and so you can break sunbathing with a stroll. There's a large car park just off the main road and access to the beach is on foot only - a 15 minute or so walk.

The beach is located next to a nature reserve. There is a large parking place 15 min walk from the beach: you pass by camping site and keep on moving on the same road till you hit a dead end with parking.
The beach is large with fine stones, sand dunes and impressive mountain at the background. Definitely worthy of a visit.

This is more on the rough side. Come prepared to spend the day. Bring water, a picnic, beach chairs and umbrella. It is worth it. No fresh water around.
