Racing the Emerald Curtain
Laeticia Casta village hides other beauties. Seek a right pointbreak towards l’Arinella and the Genoese Tower (a French historical monument), where the flat slab reef trips up some nice tubes, providing the wind is light offshore. Easy channel and deep water make this low consistency wave accessible to intermediates up. Ride the train to the mellow beachbreak facing the Pain de Sucre restaurant where patches of rock can make the shorebreak interesting. Sainte-Restitude’s beach is far rockier and the rivermouth can create a good peak.
Nice views of the citadel of Calvi, above the bay that hosts several protected jetty beachbreaks.
