Corsica is famed for its fabulous beaches, and Rondinara must be one of the best. (Just look at the website for proof!). Camping Rondinara is a couple of minutes drive from the beach (free parking for campsite customers, or ten minutes walk). First, a bit of warning for anyone intending taking a caravan: the camp website says that the access road has been widened and resurfaced in 2012 - indeed it has, but only as far as the village of Suartone. The last mile or two from there is quite narrow and steep in a couple of places, with one particularly unpleasant sharp bend just after the Terraces villa complex. However, we took our 7. 2 metre caravan down and back up without problems. (a bit nerve wracking though!) Large delivery trucks tend to arrive between 07. 30 - 09. 30, so it's best to avoid being on the accesses road at those times especially if towing. If you are not into camping, Rondinara has some smart modern air-conditioned mobile-homes for rent, or there is the rather more up-market complex of villas at Les Terraces.

Rondinara campsite itself is very well run and maintained, with extremely helpful English/Italian/French speaking staff. Most of the site consists of un-demarcated pitches, some in areas designated only for tents. It is therefore a bit of a free-for-all finding space, and you may find your neighbours are very close indeed! There is a very few (7!) reserveable marked pitches, which become available for booking from middle of May. I would highly recommend reserving especially with a motor home or caravan if you feel a bit of private space is necessary.

There are three sanitary blocks, including a very smart new one in the caravan area, and everything is kept clean even when the site is very busy. On site is a small alimentation, which seems to have everything needed for day-to-day provisions, and bar/restaurant. The site ‘infinity’ swimming pool, although a bit smaller than the website suggests, is beautifully situated overlooking the sea, but it can be difficult finding any shade.

I guess the main attraction has to be the beach, and it really is excellent. It is very gently sloping, so ideal for small kids, and being shallow the sea gets very warm. There are rocky places at either end ideal for snorkelling, and there is very pleasant beach restaurant. However, natural shade is hard to come by and the trees at the back of the beach tend to be used as the default toilet as there are no real ones provided except for customers of the restaurant. When you tire of the beach (as we do fairly quickly to be honest) there are excursion possibilities to Bonifacccio (30 minutes), you Furu (40 mins) and Ospedale (60 mins) as well as many other fabulous beaches. See also my reports on Ponte Grossu, U Furu and Santa Barbara (Corte).
