Go and discover the Calanques de Piana by boat from Scandola's natural reserve. Enjoy a stopover in Girolata on sea cruise!

Leaving from Porticcio and Ajaccio ports, you will board your boat and head out to see towards Scandola's nautral reserve. You will pass Capo Rosso on your way to the Calanques de Piana (or "calanches" is Corsican).

Considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its preservation and its important coastal location, Scandola's natural reserve is one of the last enclaves of the Mediterranean. You fall in love with the landscapes and its rich diversity. You will be impressed by the height of the cliffs and the contrast between the red coloured rocks, the blue of the sea and the greenery of the scrubland.

During your boat tour in the calanques, you will enjoy a 2 hour stopover in Girolata to freely stroll around the city or to go for a swim in the calanques surrounded by rocks.

You will once again board the boat to head back to your departure point, from the sea.
