One of the few uncrowded and practicable spots during summer in Corsica. Porto Pollo is a tiny village right on the sea side, with a sandy beach, about 500m long. One mini-market, couple of campings, a pharmacy and few brasseries, other than a windsurf school. Ideal both for beginners and intermediates/advanced riders.
