|Back from 10 days of vacation in Corsica, the island I am from. Here a view of the natural reserve of Scandola.|
This place is one of the most beautiful sites of Corsica, this is the nature reserve of the peninsula of Scandola, an impressive porphyritic rock mass, part of the Regional Natural Park of Corsica, on the south-western coast of the island between the cities of Calvi and Porto.
One can only access by the sea ... the nature is highly preserved.
The vegetation is an outstanding example of scrubland. Seagulls, cormorants and sea eagles can be found there. The clear waters, with their islets and inaccessible caves, host a rich marine life.
