The Saleccia beach is located in Corsica, in the Agriate desert, a territory whose name evokes ‘farmlands’, which are nothing like a ‘desert’, a title that you would be better off forgetting...
It’s a long strip of fine, white sands which stretch for just over a kilometre. It is considered as one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. With access being difficult, it is protected during busy summer periods.
Saleccia beach is where the film ‘The Longest Day’ was filmed in 1962. During visits in the 1960s, the Americans considered the Normandy coasts as too disfigured by cottages to shoot the film with Robert Mitchum.
