Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Such a wonderful place! We were lucky to drive through this UNESCO site in the evening at the end of May. The light was perfect and the road really quiet. We took our time and stopped a lot to take pictures. You have to see this beautiful and free site :) Enjoy!

The intricately carved rocks named Calanques are not only a landmark of Corsica. They can be found on the Cote d'Azur near Marseille and even on the Adriatic coast of Italy near Ancona. An amazing miracle of nature occurred due to the slow lowering of the rocks into the sea and erosion, which gave the granite rocks a bizarre shape in the form of fabulous animals, hearts, etc. You can get here from the village of Pyana on foot after overcoming about 3 km. I preferred to stay in Porto Ota 10 km from here and get here on a moped. Of course, it is possible by car, but in this area there are only a few "pockets" for parking on the serpentine and they can be occupied during the season... The sight is impressive... UNESCO has included the rocks in its World Heritage List for a reason...

Great part of Corsica. Beautiful views. Small road by car, lots of turns and always stopping places to take pictures of the grand landscape! A must in Corsica!

Should definitely make the time to visit if you're in Corsica. Very beautiful, reddish cliffs with various rock formations. Choose a time of day when the sun is shining on them, ideally. You can either drive the very high, narrow and windy road among them- there are various pulling off points and a cafe on the short stretch, or take a boat trip. Quickest and cheapest boat trip is from Porto but also available from Clvi and Ajaccio.

After many many curves you reach those amazing rock formations. You can park on the side of the road and take pictures without problems.

Amazing place that you can visit by car via D81, by boat by using a boat at Porto or by foot: Capo Rosso trek or Sentier des muletiers

At the beginning of October the drive from Piano through the Calenques is a beautiful thing to do. Stunning rock formations, beautiful views and a fun road to drive. Plenty of pull ins to stop for photo opportunities. However, for some at busier times of the year it might prove more challenging.

This sight will likely be included with a boat tour of Scandola and Girolata. You can only see these by boat. I recommend confirming with the boat tour operator before booking if the commentary will be only in French or multi-lingual (including English).

Road tripping round Corsica was beautiful and more so thanks to the Calanques! At sun set they really light up! Careful on the road! Very, VERY narrow!
