golfe-de-girolataThis small, highly protected gulf is located between Porto and the reserve of Scandola. It is home to the village of Girolata which is not visible from Porto, as it is hidden by Monte Senino (619 m), Europe's highest volcanic promontory.

There is no road access: we advise you to park at the Col de la Croix and in front of the wooden chalet where a path leads to the village: don't forget to take the usual precautions when walking through the maquis. Corsica !

You can also take the narrow path behind the chalet to an open viewpoint overlooking Girolata. Very pleasant.
