Route de Ficajola

Recommended
Forging its way through the heart of the Calanches, the steep, hairpin bends of this narrow road wind down to Marine de Ficajola, nestled in the cove of the same name. The contrast between the blue waters of the sea and the reddish-purple rock is quite stunning. At the bottom, leave your car in the car park and walk down to a delightful creek (30min there and back), which unfortunately gets very busy in summer.
