Best for couples: Petit Sperone
Some good old physical labour is required to enjoy Petit Sperone: a 15-minute walk from the windsurfer hangout of Piantarella beach, not far west of Bonifacio. After passing an excavated Roman villa, you’ll discover a 100-metre cove romantically crammed between a lagoon and leafy hillsides. If it’s reasonably empty, settle on a patch of white sand and gaze at Île Piana. If not, amble another 15 minutes to Grand Sperone: marginally less lovely but wider, equally undeveloped, farther flung and thus, here’s hoping, totally deserted.
