Porto-Vecchio is a seaside resort on the south-east coast of Corsica. It is the third most populated town of the island after Ajaccio and Bastia. The sixteenth century Genoese citadel walls' are used as a backdrop to the old town and offer views of the marina and its yachts. Shops, bars and restaurants line the narrow streets of the city and the main square; the Republic Square. Among the famous beaches located not far, we can mention Palombaggia and its stretch of sand surrounded by pine trees, or Santa Giulia, which waters remind those of a lagoon! Places to visit: – Palombaggia Beach – The Citadel – Santa Giulia Beach – Ospedale Forest – Pinarello Beach – Boat trip – The old Town, etc.
