The previous reviews sum it up .. a lovely part of the world with many great walks ranging in difficulty. It can get very hot and water not always available so carry a plentiful supply. Also watch out for Boar hunters especialy at the weekend..they wear bright coloured tops but you might not ! !We camped in Porto which made... More

We've traveled on the 7 continents and driven many roads. This piece of the earth is spectacular for its color and views of ocean and cliffs/rocks - something like Big Sur in California, but more rugged and remote. Plan on a couple of hours travel time for the drive and stopping for pictures and viewing. Facilities are minimal/non-existant. Heading north... More

The cliffs are something out of this world! The driving through this area is quite strenuous, so be prepared and don't take any risks. But there are carparks for views, hikes and beaches all along the coast-line, so make sure to profit from many of these! Some photos and info can be found here; http://peak-exposure.com/adventures/2013/8/15/corsica

Just make sure you have small car - the highway is carved out of the hillside in some places, and be patient if you end up behind a bus (better to be behind one than meet one coming around the corner, those suckers swing w-i-d-e. Watch out for mountain goats, and if you have time stop for a snack in... More

This really deserves a visit it is an amazing view and it is very easy to reach. We went there with my motorbike and we zigzagged thru coaches of tourists but it was worth anyway.

Breath taking views..... that magnificent combination of the red rocky mountains with the sea views was amazing.... we did the nice walk (tete de chien) that was really worth doing and would recommend it..... then finish your day at any of the beautiful beach of your choice in the area..... very nice west coast area of corsica...

They come in all kind of shapes, and you get really stunned about how nature, wind and sea, work toghether to create... More

Taking the tiny road just after Piana is an amazing journey, the view is absolutely stunning! If you continue along the road (to farther villages) you will maybe spot wild animals along the road. Way worth it.
