Or in the Corsu language, Santa Ciprianu. 

From Porto Vecchio we sailed to this beautiful bay. This stay was one of the highlights of our travels.  It felt like we had anchored in a bay on a tropical island.  The water was perfectly clear, the sand was white and wavelets lapped the beach.  Children played on the beach and in the water.

Families rested under umbrellas or in lounge chairs as they sipped strong coffee or cocktails.  Some women, old and young, wandered around topless. Everyone was pleasantly relaxed (including David).

We took up the challenge of catching the fish that milled around our boat when we threw bread morsels into the water.  We caught a couple and enjoyed them for tea. 

Our first night ‘on the hook’  was calm and uneventful.  We are now determined to spend more time in places like this.
