Great walk along a coastal path from the bastion of the cross just outside Calvi. I would recommend taking water and note that the lighthouse is shut and offers no shelter or toilet. We stopped off for a swim and a bite to eat at...More

Walked here along the coast from Calvi. Reasonably easy to navigate and got some glorious coastal views on the way. Not a whole lot to see at the lighthouse itself but worth the effort even on a hot day.

It is a rather long way to go from the city (about 2 hours 1 way), but leave your car and have some hiking experience. A stunning view opens from the lighthouse observation ground. We were even happy to see some dolphins diving. And the...More

The hike to the Revellata light house is longer than expected, but worth it. We used around 4 hours from Calvi, and the path is steep so good shoes is a must. Not too many take this walk in the warm summer, enough water is...More

Hi Roxannasi, Your kid might complain walking in this terrain after a while. The road is unpaved and it is quite a walk. I think Lil' Roussa is a better option. The road going to the lighthouse is paved hence you can use a... More
