When is a private beach not a private beach - when you're Indiana Jones!

There are no private beaches in Corsica, but there are a number that are only accessible by sea or by risking life or limb scaling sheer rock. The beach we visited today falls into this category and as we are lucky enough to know the proprietor of the land behind, we only had to hack our way through the overgrown path Indiana Jones style to reach our goal.

Our progress was only impeded when Florence thought she'd seen a huge snake which turned out to be a big dirty rope, which was lucky really as it was about 50km long and could easily have had the starring role in ‘Anaconda 2’. The water here is shallow and exceptionally warm so today, for the first time this year, I was tempted to swim. We collected shells, sea urchins and cuttle fish bones along the shore and ventured up as far as the rocks where there was an interesting little archway in the stone that makes a grotto.

It was too deep for Guillaume to walk through and I didn’t want to get the camera wet, so we had to content ourselves with taking photos from the side. Maybe next time we’ll venture further…
