Bel étang situé un peu au Nord d'Aleria, très connu depuis l'antiquité pour sa production ostréicole : il possède même, au centre de l'étang, une île construite en coquilles d'huîtres !

Certaines espèces de poissons y croissent avant de rejoindre les eaux de la méditerranée, le conservatoire du littoral à acheté les berges. En plus de la production d'huitre la région accueille plusieurs sites vinicoles.

Ce lagon est navigable en hiver et a une embouchure sur le côté N.
Les ruines de la tour de Diane s'élèvent sur le côté S de l'embouchure.

 

Very nice!
