What people are saying about Porticcio

To do absolutely, short enough but sufficient, 1 hour trip, 1 hour on site to be able to visit the island, 1 hour return trip. The swimming possible on site is not necessarily the most interesting given the beauty of the landscapes to be seen on the island In 1 hour, it is quite feasible to see the 2 buildings on the island while taking the time to do some photos with absolutely beautiful angles!

Couldn't go ashore on the island as planned because the waves were too high. As a compromise, the captain offered to circumnavigate the island, which also had to be stopped because the sea was too heavy. Thank you to the captain, he tried everything possible.

Not bad for a short excursion to discover Corsica and several attempts at a touch of humor not always efficient on the part of the guide but he will at least have had the merit of trying to relax the passengers;)

We did Parata Point in the morning by road and in the afternoon by sea. Both are to be done

comfortable boat and perfect stopover, time for a ride and a swim. memorable landscapes!
