L’Aldilonda, a balcony overlooking the sea

Since its inauguration in December 2020, it has been impossible to visit Bastia without taking the Aldilonda, a veritable balcony offering a breathtaking view of the sea.

To get there, head for the Old Port and its postcard setting. As you go around the cove to reach the south quay, you will discover this extraordinary structure built on a rocky hillside between the ramparts of the Citadel and the Tyrrhenian Sea, which stretches as far as the eye can see.
Fishing enthusiasts love to meet up on the rocks to indulge in their favourite activity in an exceptional setting. Very quickly adopted by the Bastians, this gentle route linking the town centre of Bastia to the Arinella beach is very popular with joggers and walkers.
Alone, with family or friends, the Aldilonda is the place to start the day by marvelling at the sublime sunrises over the Mediterranean Sea. Photography enthusiasts and selfies lovers roam the area daily in search of the perfect shot.
