Description

At about 5 km North of Nonza, the pebble beach of the Albo marina lies up to a beautiful genoese tower.

The setting is beautiful, but swimming can be dangerous if the sea is agitated.

Marina Albo is S from the tip of Canelle and from the old asbestos factory located on the montainside.

Open sea, it offers only a fair weather anchorage.
We anchor in the middle of the black sand beach on the south end by a tower wich should avoid the area that are not very healthy.

A environ 5 km au nord de Nonza, la plage de galet de la marine d'Albo s'étend au pied d'une belle tour génoise.

Le cadre est magnifique, mais la baignade peut être dangereuse si la mer est un peu agitée.

La Marine d’'Albo se situe au Sud de la pointe de Canelle et de l'ancienne usine d'amiante située à flanc de montagne. 

Ouverte sur le large, elle n'offre qu'un mouillage de beau temps.
On mouille au milieu de la plage de sable noir terminée au sud par une tour dont il faut éviter les parages qui ne sont pas très sains.
