Marvel at the inlets of Piana


On the waterfront road leaving Ajaccio for Calvi, you will discover a wonder of Corsican nature, the ‘Calanques' of Piana.

The ochre colour of the Piana inlets is fascinating. Of volcanic origin, this small mountain range borders the coastline for several kilometres. It is at sunset that the pink rocks take on a fascinating aspect that is totally unforgettable, and that Guy de Maupassant described as ‘one of the wonders of the world'.

At their heart, the small authentic port of Porto is a perfect starting point for visiting the Calanques. The Gulf of Porto will also convince you of the beauty of this unique place. Going to Piana is the best way to discover the beauty of Corsican nature, leaving you with unforgettable memories.
