Scandola, Girolata and Calanche de Piana Full-Day Boat Tour

1. Scandola, Girolata and Calanche de Piana Full-Day Boat Tour

Set sail from Ajaccio or Porticcio on a full-day boat tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Scandola Nature Reserve and the Gulf of Porto. Experience one of the last Mediterranean enclaves to provide shelter for endemic flora and birdlife. Stop in the coastal village of Girolata and explore the secluded village for 2 hours. Find a nice restaurant for lunch or enjoy a picnic on the beach. In the winter, the village becomes a virtual backwater with only about 15 residents. Then, venture into the Calanche de Piana to discover an outstanding landscape of pink granite rocks shaped over the centuries by changes in temperature, strong winds, and sea spray. Explore the geological diversity and unique location of the rocks that give a particular aspect to the area.

What people are saying about Ajaccio

Super expérience !! Tout est magnifique, le paysage est à couper le souffle. Notre capitaine de bord étais incroyable et super investie. Tout du long il a su nous expliquer et nous raconter des histoires sur les réserves naturelles et monuments. Sur la fin (le retour) un peu long et fatiguant. Je recommande !!

Magnificent walk. The only downside is that it is impossible to hear the comments, the explanations on the boat. It would suffice to change the certainly very old speakers. The rest is great.

Everything is great. A gigantic and wonderful setting, we are amazed, but also a crew very attentive to our well-being and very interesting and extensive comments. To do Absolutely.

Very nice cruise. An excellent captain who showed us incredible corners. Very good pilot, with impressive maneuvers. I highly recommend.

Beautiful day on the boat to discover a part of the Corsica coast which is magnificent!
