Protected by the Corsica Regional Nature Park, the Nature reserve of Scandola covers 900 hectares of land and 1000 hectares of sea. This wild peninsula of volcanic origin is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The landscapes of an astonishing beauty are a series of red cliffs, peaks, hollow sculptures (tafoni), caves... Fauna and flora are exceptional. The reserve indeed is home to numerous species of rare birds such as fishing ospreys, peregrine falcons, crested cormorants, ash puffins and golden eagles. The collection of Posidonias (flowering marine plants) growing there shows how pure the water is.
For all those wishing to discover this wonderful site, the only means to reach it is by boat or on foot via a beautiful footpath.
