Full description
After you meet the boat, you will head to the mythical scandola reserve in approximativaly one hour. The visit will start from the island of Cargalo and will continue through the cathedral fault, a total visit of the reserve and a swimming brak in turquoise waters while our captains will prepare for you a "nustrale" aperitif, a tasting of cold meats and rosé wine from Corsica. At noon, you will arrive at Girolata, a small fishing village built around an 18th century fortress accesible only by sea. You will get a free stop of 2 hours for lunch (extra charge). You have the choice between several restaurants overlooking the sea, that will welcome you and where you can taste some corsica specialties, or you can also bring your picnic and enjoy it on the beach with the mythical wild cows livigin in the village as neighbours. The boat will sail again at 2 PM towards the Gulf of Porto for another swimming break at Anse Ficaghjola, a small village overlooking a heavenly beach. You will then head to the calanques of Piana, a geological jewel with majestic cliffs and caves that you will explore one after the other until you reach the natural pool of Capo Rosso where you can five in its crystal clear waters surrounded by fish unter the watchful eye of the 330 meter high Genoese tower Turghju.

Had a great driver and the group on the bus was easy to get on with

While the tour had more driving time than I had anticipated all the stops were interesting and informative as well as being very diverse. An added bonus, to help with all the riding, was the 2 walks offered; 1 within Snowdonia and the other across the aqueduct. Llandudno was interesting and the Georgian architecture was wonderful. Conwy Castle was a wonderful experience and worth the price alone.
