Scandola is the pearl of Corsica . Created in 1975, this natural reserve protects 900 land hectares and 1000 marine hectares.
Its volcanic origin, and the work done by water and wind offer a breathtaking countryside, with steep cliffs, wild red rocks and completely unspoiled creeks.
The coastline is almost impossible to reach on foot. Judge for yourself: barely 3 km inland, the mountains have already reached 1000 m in altitude.
What remains are boats (ferries from Calvi, Galéria and Porto ). But the area is both prized (in the summer) and very regulated, between reduced speeds, and diving and fishing prohibited.
But it's worth the effort: the depths are filled with fish, and just a few cable's lengths from the shore, it is not uncommon to come across a group of dolphins.
