Beautiful and accessible walk to enjoy with your family or friends. On this coastal path which cuts through the maquis, the flora and fauna are still wild.

The so-called Customs trail starts at the Parata car park, a must-see place in Ajaccio with its Genoese tower. At the end of the car park, take the dirt track which starts on the right. Bordered by wooden studs, the path joins a small pass, then a sloping ledge.

The route really begins above a small cove of black pebbles and goes up the coast northward until the beach of Saint-Antoine à Capo di Feno, offering all along beautiful views of the sea and the Sanguinary islands.

At the end of the path, you can reach the Saint-Antoine beach descending a small set of stairs on the left, and enjoy the sea and the warm sand.

The return is done by the same route as the outward journey.
