Anse de Peraiola

Anse de Peraiola



 NM at NE of "l'Ile Rousse",  this cove, named also Porajola or Parajola, is bordered by a beautiful beach S from a tower genoese and a white cliff.

The shelter is good by SE winds, but exposed to those of West. A river flows south from the beach and creates extended half-swamp behind the sand barrier.

Here we are at the southern and quiet limit of the desert Agriates. The road N1197 provides flow of swimers on the beach at Ostriconi bottom of loop.
Anse de Peraiola
A 9 miles au Nord-Est de l'île Rousse, cette anse, appelée aussi Porajola ou Parajola, est bordée par une belle plage au Sud d'une tour génoise et d'une falaise blanchâtre.

L'abri est bon par vents de Sud à l'Est, mais exposé à ceux d'Ouest. Une rivière se jette au Sud de la plage et crée des étendues à demi-marécageuses en arrière du cordon de sable.

Ici on se trouve à la limite sud et tranquille du désert des Agriates. La route N1197 apporte son flot de baigneurs sur la plage de l'Ostriconi en fond d'anse.
