This was where the film The Longest Day was shot. It's the best beach on the island, a gently curving kilometre of white sand and turquoise sea backed by the wild Désert des Agriates.
It's inaccessible by road; take a boat from St Florent to the Plage de Loto, then it's an hour's walk from there, but worth the effort.
In the Golfe de Porto near the amazing Calanches rock formations - wide, open, golden sandy beach, with beautiful views over the mountains. Like most beaches in Corsica, you'll have it almost entirely to yourself if you go out of peak season.
A stunning white sandy beach with clear water in the Désert des Agriates, 15km from St Florent at the bottom of the Cap Corse peninsula.
It's only accessible by foot, 4WD or boat from St Florent. You can walk it in about four hours but make sure you take food and drink as you're a long way from the nearest shop!
You can walk onto Plage du Loto as well, which is equally as spectacular.
