Nature Reserve of Scandola, Corsica

(4.7/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Located on an imposing, porphyritic rock mass, Nature Reserve of Scandola is the marine portion of the Regional Natural Park of Corsica. The Elpa Nera Inlet and the Peninsula of Scandola make up two sections of the park with jagged sheer cliffs containing grottos flanked by numerous rock formations and almost inaccessible islets and coves formed by volcanic activity. The coastline is noted for its 900 m (2,950 ft) high red Rhyolite cliffs, more than 400 species of algae, architecturally interesting fortifications, and a handful of Roman sites. Traveling by boat is the best way for you to experience this incredibly diverse laboratory of flora, fauna, and geology recognized by the United Nations as a Natural World Heritage Site.

  • Chance has done wonderful things: we wanted to visit the reserve of Scandola, the Cove of Piana and Capo Rosso, and we chose at random the Alpana, surely the best choice we could make. A perfect size boat, the captain François René a child of the country, passionate and exciting. He gave us his love for this wonderful region. In addition, we really felt to go on a ride with friends or family and we even got advice visits and outings in the region for the evening! This is our best memory of Corsica and we really recommend this magical output!

  • Essential. It takes a day to see this site by the sea. This site is protected = flora and fauna and it is forbidden to make the submarine hunting, to berth or to anchor. Esu is clear and we see the fish through.

  • Saddam, a cobalt blue sea reflects the rocks eroded by the waves. If that's not enough it must be said that the captains of the boats on which you visit are a phenomenon, in fact manage to drive the boats in crevices so narrow that seem impractical and the best part is that they don't just forward but also back to exit
