One of the most beautiful waterfalls in Corsica, Piscia di Gallu is quite spectacular at a height of 60 m (196 ft). You can descend the trail fully equipped with handrails, or you can adventure on the old tourist trail along the cascades down to the plateau overlooking the creek. There is a good swimming spot in the pool right at the throat of the river where the waterway narrows. Less than a mile from the Ospédale Dam, the trail crosses a ford where you can cross the river on foot, before it flows into the open landscape overlooking the river that feeds the falls.

The waterfall is incredible. The ride is hard, and I discourage people with strollers or people with poor physical conditions. Well provide a water bottle and sunscreen and outfitting good shoes.
Avant la cascade en elle-même, la balade est spectaculaire : des torrents avec des piscines naturelles et des galets de bord de mer, des rochers monumentaux, des pinèdes... Pour vraiment atteindre la ... more »Before the stunt itself, the ride is spectacular: torrents with natural pools and beach pebbles, monumental rocks, pine forests... To really reach the waterfall, you will have to go down a very difficult path. Descent discouraged if you're not in good physical health, not well shod or accompanied by very young children. After this difficult path, you can still get down to really enjoy the waterfall, but it is even more difficult and not secure... but worth it because the waterfall is very impressive!
Après 1h à 1h30 de marche (avec de bonnes chaussures, une casquette et de l'eau car il y a très peu d'ombre), vous accédez à un niveau qui vous offre un panorama sur la cascade en son point haut. Si v... more »After 1 h to 1 h 30 walk (with good shoes, a hat and water because there is very little shade), you have access to a level that offers a panoramic view of the waterfall at its highest point. If you're brave a via ferrata is fitted down (100 m in altitude), safe. Accessible since climbing my 8 year old daughter did with me in trouble. No sports, refrain from going down: the return is physical! The view is very beautiful from above. But if feel you like, go down to admire from downstairs, the noise it does is spectacular. And more sparse tourist place, it is necessarily more enjoyable. I advise you to do this tour in the morning early (plan change for the parking), to be home in time for lunch. And you can definitely lunch at the brewery, which the staircase terraces offer a panorama of this great Valley: correct service, simple but efficient kitchen and a correct value for a tourist area. Essential release!
Luigi BarzaghiFrom the parking lot almost an hour's walk, in a beautiful place, then you come to the waterfall and be enchanted
Nicolas RIEHLA very pleasant walk up to a pretty waterfall. No particular difficult before final access to the waterfall. Many points of water to find the way to cool off. A nice and simple excursion to the afternoon starting from Porto vecchio
Toussaint JulienFamily easy ride. Only 15 minutes are a bit steep, but worth it. One star less because it is really a tourist spot that has lost a little of its natural (paid parking, restaurant, a lot of people)
Kri1978Beautiful walk of about 2 hours to reach the waterfall. Last downhill stretch a bit more challenging, but there are ropes x support. Suitable for children. A must on your hiking shoes.
