Purcaraccia, Quenza
(4.7/5 based on 65 reviews on the web)
For an unforgettable adventure, visit Purcaraccia, a canyon with fun rock and water slides and emerald green pools. Your older children will love sliding down the rockslides with water flowing down into pools. Two waterfalls are on either side of the rockslides, one at a height of 40 m (130 ft) and the other at 8 m (26 ft). The walk to get to the creek takes about an hour via the narrow and often steep footpath, so this can be a difficult trudge for very young children, elderly folks, or people with physical disabilities. Due to the interesting landscape and aura of adventure, this is a popular place for tourists.

Amid granite rocks heated by the sun, many basins or natural pools carved into the rock provide swimming opportunities if you're brave--the water is a cool 14 C (57 F). Getting to the pools is an adventure itself; a path leads into the brush with grand views of the imposing Bavella Needles. There's a giant vertical rock wall on the right side above you where you'll cross the stream and climb up on the opposite side to reach the first pool. The steep path leads to a sequence of pools and slides creating a dramatic landscape. Put Purcaraccia on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Quenza vacation planner.

  • I have unforgettable memories of this hike, do of the canyoning at Purcaraccia, is a must, of course he must of the Sun and heat; go to Corsica and miss these stunts is a mistake.

  • Very nice corner with pools in clear but cold water (15 ° for us glagla!) and + natural slides in the rocks. Splendid! Small problem: the path to get there is staggering toward the end and very badly indicated, even not at all, so we get lost, we get mad, we get tired... we were on the verge of giving up but we had reason to persevere, because in the end the result is great! To do if you're in the area!

  • We made this ballad after one hole of the bomb, it's beautiful but wrong arrow so you get lost, you get tired, we get mad about nothing... but in the end the panorama and natural pools are still worth a visit.

  • I've been two times on that beautyfull place! 👍👍
  • Getting to the pools is sometimes dangerous so you might want to consider going with a guide (it's doable without) but it is so worth it!!! Beautiful.
  • Nice waterfall.
  • Natural swimming pool at the edge of road. Of that the Sun hides, the place becomes deserted! Magnificent. And the water is surprisingly hot!
