“A Highlight of Corsica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

These cliffs are stupendous and the views from them AND of them are really special. You can drive along the road--there's only one road and there are some pull offs along the way. The road is very narrow, has hairpin turns, and should not be driven at night. From the road, you can access various trails (get a map from TI in Porto or Piana). The hike to the Fortress is moderately difficult and has excellent views.

Otherwise, the Calanques can be seen from the various boat rides leaving from the Porto Marina.

“breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Like nature-created sculptures. Fantastic, moderate-difficulty walks. If you visit in the summer months do take lots of water and try to avoid midday heat. Stones might get slippery when it's raining and I would think it is easy to get lost in a storm...

“Don't miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

All the reviews are quite right.The Calanche Cliffs are absolutely amazing! You can see them either by boat or you can take a leisurely drive "through" them.There are plenty of places to park up & take a million photographes.

This area is absolutely stunning! The cliffs on both sides are beautiful in very different ways. Recommend to be seen at the sunset!

“A wondrous site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The Calanques de Piana are a Unesco World Heritage Site which is part of the Regional Park of Corsica near the Scandola Peninsula. North of Ajjacio, a must see if you go to Corsica. Amazing red rock formations set against the rugged coastline.
