St. Florent - Ile Rousse

St. Florent - Ile Rousse



Called the desert of Agriates this wild coast, stretching from St Florent to Ile Rousse, has no roads, no village, only the bush covered with thick groves.

Many beaches, coves along the shore, but none is feasible when the wind blows.
Appelée le désert des Agriates cette côte sauvage, qui s'étend de St Florent à l'île Rousse, n'a ni route, ni village, seulement le maquis couvert d'épais bosquets. 

De nombreuses plages, criques bordent le rivage, mais aucune n'est praticable quand souffle le vent.
