Full description

Depart Porto and explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Calanche de Piana in the Gulf of Porto by silent hybrid boat to respect the environment. Located halfway between Ajaccio and Calvi, close to the village of Piana, the Calanche de Piana is part of a volcanic complex that towers up to 300 meters above sea level at its highest altitude.

Marvel at the pink granite rocks shaped over centuries by changes in the temperature, strong winds, and sea spray. Discover a series of fantastic rock formations sculpted into spectacular shapes and surrounded by crystal blue waters. Rich with marine life and seabirds, the area also demonstrates a tremendous diversity of rocks in locations that give a particular aspect to the surroundings.

I enjoyed the trip, it was amazing how great the crew drove the rather large boat very close to the cliffs so that we can look into the caves. Certainly it was informative and funny, we thought 5 years of school French would make us understand enough, but it wasn't. So I can't say anything for information, but the others laughed in amusement every now and then. 2 important things that were not clear to me before: The trip at 6 p.m. in July was not ideal, because large parts of the caves are already in the shade, better drive at 4 p.m., because the rocks are also nice and red. And then there are small boats that go as far as IN the caves, I would have liked that even better. With this boat, the view at the front and bottom is best: In the course of the journey, many came down to us, because you are not sitting in the front, but looking into the caves with the tip of the boat. Still very nice, it was fun, the boat picked up speed and was nice and fast. :)

Breathtaking crossing by its beauty. However, no information when booking on the style of boat (large boat or zodiac) making the crossing. We certainly loved it but fortunately we are not cardiac, if for example my Mum had come with us you might have had big trouble ... to be absolutely informed when booking.

Friendly visit, pleasant ... To do but do not expect a crazy visit !!! But it is true that for 50 euros to 2 it was correct .. On the other hand, a small special mention for the captain with very clear explanations and above all very funny .. Here and if not for the pleasant boat also; toilet and bar available
