The Bavella Needles
If you leave the camp site ahead towards Bavella, you enter the Corsican regional park and the GR20 hikingroute isn’t far.
With their crimson porphyry, the Bavella Needles, punta di u pargulu, punta di a Vacca, punta di l’Ariettu reveal magnificent panoramic views. Walkers of all ages and abilities start from there.
Possibility of rock climbing, as well as easy walks like the “Trou de la Bombe”.
After the summit of Bavella you will enter the Alta Rocca, the Land of the Lords, with typical Corsican villages
like Sainte Lucie de Tallano or Zonza and the forest of l’Ospédale overlooking the gulf of Porto Vecchio.
As you descend to the sea you enter Port Vecchio, a tourism centre during the summer.
In August the salt marshes are harvested.
