Southern Corsica, jewel of the Mediterranean

Corsica, natural jewel of the Mediterranean, shows, in the south, other protected treasures.
Wild, fierce, but friendly, sunny, bathed in a changing blue sea, from turquoise to deepest sapphire blue, bathing its coasts sometimes made of fine sand, sometimes made of steep rocks, southern Corsica is offered to its tourists, hikers and boaters, with some restraint.

The Corsica Regional Nature Park, boasts two pearls in particular: The marine and land Nature Reserve of Scandola in its heart, which is over 80 km wide, from the peninsula of Capo Rosso to Galeria on one hand, and the Creeks of Piana on the othe hand.

The Creeks of Piana
The coves are expanding their coasts of granite, from the charming village of Piana, ranked among the most beautiful villages in France and of worldwide interest for the UNESCO, to Porto.
Piana and its pretty little white church steeple that have been rising proudly into the blue sky since the year 1792, Piana and its Genoese Round Tower, which remains among the most beautiful and best preserved of Corsica.

In hiking
One of the most popular hiking trail of the area starts from Piana, this small village surrounded by green pastures, whose white houses are arranged in an arc, like an amphitheater, facing the sea.
The soft curves of grassy meadows give way suddenly to granite. A few clumps of trees still hold the land, but soon, only the jagged forms, the vertiginous steep slopes, can be admired by hikers.
On the arrival to Porto, on the hiking trail, you can see another Genoese Tower, square shaped, and equally well preserved.

By sea
To visitors by the sea, the scene is a festival of colors and shapes.
Shades of dove gray or anthracite granite mix with a palette of warm tones from yellow orange to orange-red.
The variations in temperatures, the winds from the Mediterranean can be extremely violent, and washouts, caused by the flow of rainwater, have helped to shape these sometimes curious rock-formings.
The fantasy about a bestiary has no problem to emerge in the interpretation of the shapes carved by nature : for example the local celebrity known as "the dog's head."

But lovers are not left out, since they may see a good omen for their bright future when they see the "Heart in the Mountain."
These distorted shapes can overlook the sea from a height of 300 meters.

The road D81
Only path taken by cars, curvy, cliff-side, narrow, it is not the best possible access for those who want to enjoy the breathtaking view of the Creeks.
It does not have access to the sea either.
Furthermore, if the vehicle passengers can enjoy the view over the sea, the red sides, with their undulating ravines, their drilled holes that are called "taffoni", it is not the same for the driver who must be especially vigilant.

Whatever the means, why not trying the three pre-cited? the Creeks of Piana have no secrets for the tourist in love with Corsica as visitors, vacationers and boaters will surely become.
