Gorges de la Restonica, Corsica

4.8
#1 of 6 in Trails in Corsica
One of the picturesque highlights of Corsica, Gorges de la Restonica offers you the opportunity to hike, swim, and admire the gorges with numerous pools. The Restonica River flows gently through the low valley past forested pines and river pools providing a refreshing place to cool off. You have two separate hiking trails to choose from--the popular Melo and Capitello Lakes trail and the Monte Rotondo route high above the valley reaching a height of 2,600 m (8,530 ft), which is more rigorous. The splendor and accessibility of the valley makes this a popular place for nature lovers, causing the road to get busy during peak season. Gorges de la Restonica is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Corte Edition.

    I visited this place in the middle of August. Although many tourists, it is possible to visit without worries. This River is beautiful and a small road the line all the time. From time to time got to stick close to the ravine or the rock when you see other cars but it's doable. The landscape is fabulous on a 15 km approximately. Can we stop for Spades fuck on a flat stone next to the river and dip his feet in the clear water and refreshing come directly from the mountain. Still deplore parking when you arrive at the end of this beautiful road which is also a dead end

    Many successive "sinks" for of to cool off in the River in the shade of the trees. Possibility to leave the car nearby, so little market opur get there. The water is crystal clear. Beautiful relaxation

    Beautiful pristine corner where you can spend a few days relaxing. Along the River lie many natural pools uncrowded. The water is very cold and the road to get there is not the best but still remains one of the most beautiful places in Corsica.

    The most beautiful gorge I've ever had the opportunity to see! The color of the water is amazing! Do not hesitate to forward a little on the road to find nice spots with a little less world beyond 2 km after the camping no individuals other than the parking which is the starting point for a visit to the Lakes.

    Beautiful place, as frozen in time. Discover absolutely. The bowls or natural pools are a real treat in warm weather. Nice but a little fresh water. Careful, the road that runs along the Gorge's barely wider than a bicycle. Big danger to cross... with the void below.
