Atmosphere

It's a beautiful spot, in a very small bay, in front of the citadelle of Calvi. So even in summer, the beach can not be crowded.
The atmosphere is top at the morning, or at the sunset, with the beautiful light of the corsica island

General

A good spot to surf when the wave breaks on the sand bar 200m to the beach
A good bodyboard spot when it's a small gnarly shore break, and even a fun spot for bodysurfing, when the wave is so small but so beautiful, with a little perfect tube!
I like it!
