There were only 2 of us for this excursion (3 with the driver). It was awesome. The path is hilly but the 4x4 is full of role. We were able to discover some plants of the maquis as well as the beach of Ghignu where the two of us stayed for almost 4 hours. No boat anchored in the bay. A truly magical moment when we were alone in the world.

September 12, 2020, cultural ride in 4/4 in the Agriates desert. At noon, lunch of very good cured meats and Corsican cheese in an old village, Ghugnu beach and its white sand. Super day thanks to our guide Thierry, super nice who masters the driving, culture and history of Corsica.

Superb experience through the maquis with the odors of curry, between small anecdotes about Corsica and laughs following the rocking of our car, we had a great time, even masked. The beach was great too. The only small "problem" was the slightly less comfortable place in the rearmost seat of the 4x4, we had our knees above the navel, at 3, it is starting to get tight :)
