From Calvi: Agriate Guided Jeep Tour to Lotu and Saleccia

1. From Calvi: Agriate Guided Jeep Tour to Lotu and Saleccia

Time stops and immersion in "the attic of Corsica"! As rich in history as in vegetation, we set off to discover an extraordinary site combining maquis and beaches worthy of the Caribbean... The Agriates desert is a micro-region that is desert only in name! Planted with Mediterranean vegetation that is traditionally found in the maquis, such as holm oaks, olive trees or even heather and myrtles. The 13km of 4x4 track will offer us the possibility of admiring extraordinary points of view, of discovering the history of the site with the many mullers (pagliaghji) - small stone constructions with roofs covered with earth - which mark out the territory and which are the witnesses of intense past agro-pastoral activities, but also to meet the wild fauna populating the desert (cows, warblers, grass snakes, peregrine falcons etc…) At the arrival of the track, stop on the beaches of Lotu and Saleccia (protected natural areas), land of the Conservatoire de l'espace littoral, real paradises on earth... or rather maritime! Fine white sand beaches, clear turquoise waters, sea bream, cuttlefish and other “inhabitants”… get your masks and snorkels on!! For those who wish, it is possible to go for a "short" hike on part of the customs path between the beaches of Lotu and Saleccia. (1h15 on average).

Ile Rousse : désert des agriates : Saleccia - Lotu

4. Ile Rousse : désert des agriates : Saleccia - Lotu

Les plus belles plages de Corse sont à moins d’une demie heure de bateau d’Ile Rousse ! Au bord du Désert des Agriates se trouve un secret, deux des plus belles plages de Corse, entouré de bleus infinis, d’eaux translucides, de sable blanc et de rivages incroyablement parfaits. Les plages du Lotu et de Saleccia, bordées par le désert, sont un paradis qu’il faut rejoindre par bateau. Leur éloignement et leur relative inaccessibilité signifient qu’elles restent heureusement intactes, ce qui leur confère un charme rare et difficile à trouver ailleurs en Méditerranée. Vous ne devez pas manquer ces joyaux intacts de notre île. La plage Saleccia faite de sable blanc s’étend sur plus de 1 km. C’est un mélange de couleurs et de formes fascinantes : dunes de sable, roches du désert, eau turquoise, montagnes du Cap Corse. Vous y verrez de temps en temps des vaches qui se promènent ou font la sieste. La plage du Lotu est l’une des plages les plus protégées du désert, l’eau qui coule doucement sur le sable ensoleillé est l’une des plus pures de Corse. Des collines basses recouvertes de maquis très parfumés entourent la plage. Vous pourrez y avoir une vue fantastique sur les montagnes du Cap Corse tout en vous relaxant sur le sable. Plus sauvage que la plage de Saleccia, vous y verrez surement des vaches sauvages qui errent dans la région.

It was a good experience, we were picked up from the previously agreed starting point and on time super punctual. We were at the risk of postponing the excursion due to strong winds but in the end everything turned out great. The guide who accompanied us was very nice and gave us a lot of information on the history of Corsica, he remained active throughout the journey and enthused us with his stories ... Very satisfied with having chosen this excursion.

Solid tour with a great guide. Along with the Beautiful panoramas and beach, we talked about some Culture and history of the island. Do note That if you booked the tour in English and You are with a french group, you will be Hearing a lot more French than English. But that Seems to be more because you are I’m Corsica. The tours are predominantly French

Interesting activity and corresponding to my expectations I recommend The guide is available and he creates real exchanges between the participants

A fun boat trip, which brought stars to our eyes because the landscapes were so wow. A big thank you to Captain Gilbert for his good humor
