Lotu Beach

Discover our most beautiful beaches...

The Lotu and its clear waters... quite a programme!

The two small beaches of Lotu are the first in the Agriate when leaving Saint-Florent. Located 15 minutes away by boat, they are separated by a rocky strip with an impassable edge, but ideal for a quiet anchorage.

The little Lotu, to swim in peace.

This pretty little secret cove, barely visible from the open sea, is perfect if you are looking for peace. To get there, go around Punta Cavallata, a rocky point in the shape of a sphinx. You can climb up to discover the ruins of a building that used to house monks who were "watchful of invaders"... A stone's throw from the customs path and its hikers.

The Lotu: larger and well-sheltered.

Located on the other side of the cove, the beautiful Lotu beach is also trendy as it is well protected from westerly winds. It is easy to spot from the open sea thanks to its sizeable floating pontoon, to which it is forbidden to tie up! You must anchor beyond 300m to leave the beach free for swimming. Its gentle slope makes it a perfect spot for children, but there can be some excellent rollers in case of a gale. Be careful; no site is supervised in the Agriate.

Our wellness tips:

Bring something to protect yourself from the sun, as there is no shade: sufficient water and a picnic. Nevertheless, there are two straw huts a few minutes walk away in the direction of Saleccia: the "Cabane du Lotu", well hidden in the vegetation and at the water's edge and "A piniccia di Saleccia", behind the beach of Saleccia. Don't forget to book to enjoy grilled meats and salads in an idyllic setting...
