Description

Saint Florent is on the W coast of Cap Corse.
W coast of Cap Corse is rocky and provides only shelter that the small port of Centuri, near the end of the peninsula.

The Gulf of Saint Florent opens to the N between the root of Cap Corse E and the rocky desert Agriates to W, which gives mass to the coast to the high convexity N, between Punta Mortella and the Punta di Acciolu, 9M in W.

Strong swells enter this gulf and the holding ground is poor.

Saint Florent se trouve sur la côte W du cap corse.
La côte W du cap corse est rocheuse et n'offre qu'un abri celui du petit port de Centuri, proche de l’extrémité de la presqu'île.

Le golfe de Saint Florent s'ouvre vers le N entre l'enracinement du cap corse à l'E et le massif rocheux du désert des Agriates à l'W, massif qui donne à la côte une forte convexité vers le N, entre Punta Mortella et Punta di l'Acciolu, 9M à l'W.

Une forte houle pénètre dans le golfe et la tenue du sol n'est pas fiable.
