Corsica is not a very accessible region. The Scandola Nature Reserve can only be viewed from the sea. And the village of Girolata with the bay of the same name is also not accessible by transport. But you can walk! The only way to Girolata on foot is the "Postman's Trail", named after the local now deceased postman Guy Ciccaldi. He is everyone (!!!) day made this journey to deliver mail to the locals. Having rented a moped in Porto, I almost repeated the path of the famous Corsican postman. Ceccaldi was traveling from Partinello where the French Post office was located. You can park your moped or car in the parking lot at the Col de la Croix pass by turning off the D81 highway. It is 15 km north of Porto. The 7 km hike to Girolata takes about 1 hour and 45 minutes. Guy Ceccaldi did it in 45 minutes! I didn't have more than 4 hours (taking into account the trip from/to Porto) and I stopped half way at Tuara Beach. Completely empty, except for the yacht standing in the bay. The "Postman's Trail" doesn`t require special training, but it is necessary to make an effort, especially on the way back, when it is necessary to go uphill. There is a water source along the way, which is very useful, because its own water has a habit of running out quickly under the hot Corsican Sun.
