Girolata is the place where cows are able to roam freely on the beach and cool down in the sea amongst the tourists!
It's a small village, more of a farming community with a boardwalk along a small beach, lined with several wooden huts providing souvenir shops, restaurants and bars to the hordes of tourists that arrive by boat.
Village properties are built using the red rocks that merge nicely with the stunning vivid red of the surroundings and they are overlooked by the seventeenth century Genoese watchtower. Watching the scenery change colour as the sun sets from one of the bars with a glass or two of Corsican wine in hand is recommended before taking an evening stroll along the coastal path. It's certainly a beautiful location if not spoilt slightly by the amount of boats that frequent the place.
We just missed low season, so we're in mid-season which cost us €43.40 instead of €30. The price goes up to €60 in high season! There are shower facilities ashore at an additional cost of €2.
