Lieu d'arrivée des 2 bateaux qui assurent la liaison depuis Saint-Florent, la plage du Loto est de fait très fréquentée.

Plage parfaite de sable fin et clair à l'Est du désert des Agriates. L'eau d´une grande pureté, la beauté du maquis attirent de nombreux touristes venus dans la journée par bateau de St Florent. 

L'approche est aisée. On mouillera par 5m de fond sur du sable.

La plage de Loto ou de Curza s'étend en avant d'une petite plaine basse formée par l'estuaire d'une rivière à l'Ouest de la pointe de Curza, la dernière pointe avant le golfe de Saint Florent.

On mouillera à l'extrémité Ouest de la plage par 3 à 4m d'eau sur fond de sable de moyenne tenue.
L'abri est médiocre par vent frais d'Ouest et intenable par vent de NW à NE. 

Une estacade de bois permet l'amarrage en bout par mer calme. Elle est utilisée par les vedettes de promenade venant de Saint Florent.
