Knowing that beachrocks are built at, or near, the sea level, we dated (C) old submerged beachrocks in South Corsica in order to investigate possible recent tectonic movements in the region. All the sites show a good correlation between the present depth of old beachrocks and the stands of the Mediterranean sea-level at the corresponding ages. This indicated that the axis of the Corsica-Sardinia block remained stable during at least the last 30, 000 years. As some recent subsidences are locally reported on the margins of both islands it would be interesting to extend this type of studies to the rest of the Corsica-Sardinia block.
