Insider's guide: 4 of the best picnic spots in the Mediterranean

Insider's guide: 4 of the best picnic spots in the Mediterranean

3 of 4 3/4
Golf de Santa Manza, Corsica

The best beach picnic spot

Fabio Bragagnolo — Golf de Santa Manza, Corsica

One of the best beach picnic spots in the Mediterranean is Balistra beach in Golf de Santa Manza, Corsica.

Fabio Bragagnolo says: “My favourite picnic spot is in Golf de Santa Manza, close to Bonifacio. Come ashore beneath the limestone cliffs on Balistra beach and admire the view.”

Need to know: Golf de Santa Manza is close to Bonifacio on the southern tip of Corsica. Balistra beach is only accessible by a three-kilometre dirt track so it is a lot quieter than many of the other beaches in the area. The area is surrounded by turquoise waters and white cliffs and there are several small coves to explore.

How to get there by superyacht: A picnic at Golf de Santa Manza can be enjoyed while exploring Corsica by superyacht. After your picnic a visit to the nearby Iles de Lavezzi and the Ile Cavallo are also recommended. You can take a tender into the marine reserve and enjoy swimming among the granite yachts.
