The hike was in one word ‘fabuleuse’. Stunning views whereever you go. However, directions are minimal, to say the best. One advice: take the ‘trou de la bombe’ hike. But be aware that this is the path with the red paint on trees and rocks....More

Easy stroll that turns into more enjoyable/challenging rocky scramble. Views along the way are fantastic. Highly recommend climbing up the final section for epic views out to the sea!

Nice , well marked trial for a whole family! Crowded place but worth seeing. Good point to see two neighbouring monuntains. Shorter and easier trial marked only with footprints and stone piramids on Punta di San Petru. Excellent views!!!

Nice relaxing hike of around 2.5 hours (go and back) with beautiful scenery. Towards the end the potential to climb the rocks (not recommended for children) for stunning views of the Aguilles de Bavella. Definitely recommend it for a first hike in Corsica.
