St. Francois Beach is one of the most frequented in the area within close proximity to the port and cruise terminal. With soft sand and clear waters, it’s a great place to swim as is Tahiti beach which offers ample parking along its stretch.
If you fancy an adventure, take the Iles Sanguinaires road west of Ajaccio and make your way to Capo di Feno beach, a hidden gem complemented by unspoiled wilderness. The Iles Sanguinaires beaches located next to the Parata Peninsula in south-west Corsica are also a sight to behold thanks to the multiple sea caves and sparkling clear waters.

Driving in Ajaccio
In France, people drive on the right hand side of the road and overtake on the left, so beware of this if you come from a country where this rule is reversed. Many of France’s roads provide exceptional views of the French landscape – just take care when travelling along narrow mountain roads.
While on-street parking in Ajaccio is limited and restrictive, you’ll find a host of parking ‘garages’ around the city which are safe and located within easy walking distance of main tourist attractions.
