Boat from Porto: You have a nice view of the Calanches. In a boat for € 26 per person we were nearly an hour and a half. The guide told us not much, and only in French. You also have options for tours to Girolata and Scandola. Although I recommend Scandola from Galéria, but the people can not compare to... More

The red rocks are amazing. It feels like being in a total different continent, compared to other regions of Corsica. Driving through the roads over the red rocks also easy, there are many spots to stop, to take amazing photos and to admire the combination of cristal clear, blue water and red rocks. Be aware that the locals drive pretty... More

These red rocks are simply stunning. People park along the very narrow road and then walk a distance to stop and ponder the beauty of these rocks. In addition, when you take a boat trip to,Scandola Nature Reserve, you can view them by water which is equally as spectacular. This is a must when visiting Vorsica. the entire island is... More

I have been going to Corsica ever since I was a toddler and this remains my favourite. The drive with its stunning views is a must see and so typical of the area. You can also stop by the "dog head", get out of the car and take a "hike" to the "castle" where the views are even more stunning.... More

If you go to Ajaccio in Corsica, take a day out and drive along the coast to the North as far as Porto. You will drive along the coastline and through the mountains, through Tuccia, Sagone, Cargese, through the Eucalyptus forests, the Calanches de Piana, the fabulous red, red cliffs rising out of the sea with views over the Mediterranean...

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
