Desert des Agriates presents an arid microclimate on 40 km (87 mi) of sandy desert and unspoiled coastline and is visible from space. Rocky cliffs jut out and up from the sands with small oasis ponds scattered throughout. You will not find a town or homes except along the highway, because the desert is an impenetrable environment. Many Mediterranean plants and trees, include heather, arbutus, cistus, myrtle, mastic trees, olive trees, oaks, and maritime pine that date back to the plantations established in the 20th century. Several agricultural plains, groves, and meadows provide sanctuary to wildlife, while rocky Ghignu shelters provide camping accommodations and shared bathrooms for 4-6 people.

The Road that runs along the Desert des Agriates is very impressive. We traveled from Ile Rousse to Saint Florent. Many curves and slopes Are faced. However The scenery is an incredible surprise for the eyes. Absolutely unmissable. There are several Spiazzi where you can stop to admire the view and take pictures. There are a number of makeup vans and inns where you can stop and drink and eat. A few Km from Saint Florent You will meet various transport announcements with 4x4 in the direction of Saleccia. When You glimpse the sea is really very particular
And after almost 2 hours of dirt road (11km) in the middle of the desert of the Agriate we arrived in a natural paradise... The beach of Saleggia... But there are many trekking paths that lead to other magnificent coves 😍
