What I did
Marine reserve of Scandola, Calanches de Piana

Flag of France  , Corsica,
Saturday, June 16, 2012

Left Ajaccio in the morning; the GPS took us on a goat track rather than the main road. Met with the locals (cows and goats) on very windy roads large enough for one car...
Arrived in Porto for lunch, nice salads and icecreams.  Booked 2 cruises for the next day, checked in  our hotel (Belvedere), our room had a balcony with view on the Genoise tower built long time ago by the Maures.  They were used to lit up a fire and warn the next town of enemy presence. Some eighty towers around Corsica and every one would be warned within an hour.
Swim at the nearby beach
17th June; left at 9am for the marine and national park reserve of Scandola, visit of the fishing village of Girolata, only accessible by sea or goat track.
Back for another salad and a swim and at 6pm back on board for the Callanques du Piana.
