How to get there

Transport
Car
Access
Short walk

Take the road from Bonifacio to Porto Vecchio. Half way, where the road is straight over a long distance you have to take a sandy road to the right (very bad road, 2km). There is a shield to point to the beach and a beach restaurant. It's in the Golfo de Santa Manza, at the West side of the Golf. Drive all the way up to the point where most surfers are. Not much space for parking.

Extra information

Rules
None

In addition to the beach at the end of the bay, there's also several small beaches on the south-east side of the bay. Less room to launch but more wind.
