This is nice to see but we personally favour the Calanches de Cassis. Nonetheless, if you are here, take a bpat out and enjoy the trip to this natural monuments.

Amazing rock formations. The view is breathtaking. Huge red rocks dramatically fall into the blue sea. The color of the rocks is changing through the day, so worth visiting even twice The only problem is that is overcrowded in the summer, even in September.

If you are driving along the road from Porto to Piana (the D81 road) you will come across many signs for the Calanche Cliffs and quite a large car park. You can take a short hike (around 30 min one way depending on fitness levels) to the viewpoint where you can get some amazing views (see photos). I would wear... More

We drove all way from Bonafacio, to get here (which is 4h drive.) Worth it! Arrived just two hours before sunset, but if you have more time, I highly recommend to go on one of all hiking trails nearby.

One of best places on Corsica. Be prepared to spend the hole day. There are two parking lots on the road one before and one after cliffs, so if you have two cars park one on the lower parking and then drive and park on the upper one and then enjoy slowly working down the road taking as much pictures...

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
