4.7
#5 of 64 in Wildlife in Corsica
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.

  • Small cruise started out of Porto to discover this beautiful coast. Surprising colors, funds of rare beauty. Corsica to admire the sea and it's sublime, there are no other words.

  • Our excursion to Scandola took 5 h from Tiuccia. If you would understand everything the French explanations, it would surely also huge interesting. But so the trip very in length stretches and at some point you have enough of the imposing cliffs. Miss may but definitely not to take a dip, to see the incredible underwater world in Calanches Piana. All in all interesting, impressive, but long.
