Great views of the coast here from high ground. Nice little bay for swimming if you are prepared to climb down to it

Whenever in Ile-Rousse, my days start with a run to the Light House. Good exercise rewarded with a breathtaking view at the top

Mostly interesting for its pink granite this is a place worth visiting en route to Calvi. There is a nice beach which is not crowded.

The walk to the top is not as bad as it looks. Once there, take in the scenic view. The lighthouse itself isn't much. It's about the environs.

This is a really nice walk. If you're more adventurous it's fun to climb over / around the rocks. There are two lighthouses. Great for sunset

The lighthouse is quite boring, but the view is splendid, especially at sunset. The walk is easily manageable and is pleasant. A view not to be missed
