On the West side of Ajaccio, the Sanguinaires road follows the sea and its red rocks and leads to the Parata peninsula. The promontory at the Parata headland, where stands a Genoese tower, offers a wonderful panoramic view of the Sanguinaires archipelago, but also of the surrounding coasts. It is at the end of the day that colours are the most beautiful.
A waymarked walking trail which boasts numerous viewpoints takes in the rich local flora. In spring, the location is even more charming when it is dotted with pretty wild flowers.
