Impressive Bavella mountains and a great hike to the Trou de la Bombe. Nice walk through the woods until you reach the Trou. Then it's a challenging climb over rocks to reach the Trou the la Bombe. Spectacular view from the hole. Paid parking place...More

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!

You can view the Trou from the 1st hill off the car park taking the more northern red path, but its cdefinitely worth the hike up the path and then over the rocks. The last section may have some short cuts but the main route...More

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!!!

We had only half a day and decided to walk the 'Trou de la Bombe' trail. The trail is easy and it was quite busy at the time we did it. At the end, there's the whole in the rock. It's nice and the overlook...More

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.
