It’s one of the unforgettable places in Corsica. Even if you’re not an experienced climber, you can sense the magnificence of the mountains by starring at the Bavella Needles.

Beautiful place. We got here quite late and had to park at the parking lot (I think it was 4-5 Euro) as there was no spot along the road. Even tough later on we found out there are more free spots just down the road....More

Nice hike , very well marked. The views are breathtaking. The hike is not really super demanding, but if you are not fit, count enough time and carry enough water because there are no fonts on the way. Take good shoes!

Followed the scenic tour route from Porto veccio to Zonza and then onto Bavella and then down to the coast road. This route was very quiet mid week and vistas along the whole route got better and better. It felt like you could stop every...More
