Seascape Photo Contest Entry 
Erbalunga is a fishing village situated about half way along the eastern coast of Cap Corse, to the north of Bastia. The village now gives little clue that it was once the major port town in north-east CorsicThe village consists of a small huddle of houses squeezed scenically onto a rock peninsula jutting into the sea, with a ruined Genoese tower - a listed historic monument - standing guard at the end of the village. Or if not standing guard any longer, then providing numerous photo opportunities! Although small, the village itself is a pleasure to explore, with traditional village houses lining the ancient streets, narrow alleys and passageways that make up Erbalunga. The narrow alleys have decorative crazy-paved floors and are lined with cacti, succulents and deliciously scented jasmines. There are also a number of cafes and restaurants here to cater to visitors and locals alike.
