Réserve Naturelle de Scandola

Top choice nature reserve

in Porto

The jewel of the Golfe de Porto World Heritage Site, the Réserve Naturelle de Scandola extends both above and below the water, from the russet-hued cliffs down to their submarine counterparts. With no road or trail access, you can only explore this majestic wilderness by boat.

Several Porto-based boat operators, including Via Mare, L'Eivissa and Corse Émotion, run half-day excursions into the reserve, in some cases combining it with Les Calanques de Piana.
