Description

Place of arrival of two boats which connect from Saint-Florent, the beach Loto is very busy.

Perfect beach of fine sand and clear eastern desert Agriates. The water of great purity, the beauty of bush attracts many tourists from throughout the day by boat from St Florent.

The approach is easy. We drop anchor in 5m on sand bottom.

The range of Bingo or Curza extends in front of a small lowland formed by the estuary of a river to the west of the tip of Curza, the last peak before the Gulf of Saint Florent.

We drop anchor at the western end of the beach by 3 to 4m of water on sandy bottom of average held.
The shelter is mediocre by fresh wind from west and untenable by wind from NW to NE.

A wooden pier provide moor in calm sea. It is used by celebrities to walk from Saint Florent.

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.
