The Aïtone pools, the Spelunca and the Gulf of Porto are the jewels in the crown of Corsica's west coast. 

During this short break you'll discover one of the island's treasures: the Gulf of Porto with its deep blue waters and the famous Calanques de Piana, an incredible tangle of needles, peaks and ridges of red granite with typical Mediterranean vegetation. This unique place, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, amidst the scents of the maquis, with its maritime pines, arbutus, juniper and agaves, will leave you with memories of a fabulous getaway.

Day 2

From Evisa to Porto

The route follows the old mule track through the Spelunca gorges in the heart of a pink granite massif: a spectacular sight. It crosses the river several times on ancient Genoese bridges, passes through the typical village of Ota and reaches Porto by road. 


2024: Due to the damages caused by the severe storms in November 2023 the upper part of the Spelunca Valley is not accessible, a transfer will take you to the lower part in the morning from where you will be able to hike to Porto via Ota.

From Porto to Piana

The trail leaves Porto along its pebble beach and gradually rises above the gulf, offering superb views of the Scandola reserve and Capu Ceninu. You will then arrive in the calanques of Piana, a UNESCO-listed site, shaped by erosion into astonishing forms.
