    The best way to visit is by the sea, but you can surely find your happiness by walking on the shore. There are plenty of small beaches and coves, snorkeling in the crystal clear sea there is a fantastic experience!

    Beautiful, quiet, clean beach at the end of the most dangerous road I ever drove on.
    We went to this beach twice during our stay in Piana.
    The first day we drove to the beach, which was a bad decision for us. The road was absolutely terrifying - very sharp corners, no barriers most of the way down, really deep drop. I but had a nervous breakdown at the wheel of our rental car.
    We loved the beach so much, decided to go again the next day, but this time on foot, following the well-signed footpath. The walk took 1 hr each way, and I wouldn’t say it’s for the inexperienced. We are both relatively experienced walkers and had our hiking boots on, and we loved the walk. The path is mostly shaded, but it’s still very, very steep, so only use this path if you’re used to walking and have good shoes/boots on.

    The beauties of the D81 road are usually associated with the Calanques of Piano. Undoubtedly, these rocks are impressive, but this is not the only advantage of this road. The D81 starts in Ajaccio and ends in the north in Calvi. I have not traveled from the Gulf of Girolata to Calvi, but judging by the map there is a serpentine and it is also beautiful. I watched the road from the bus window from Ajaccio to Porto and back. And I was happy that I wasn't in the driver's seat. His skill amazed me no less than the surrounding beauty. Driving a bus in such a serpentine requires strong nerves, composure and skill. I took a moped to Porto and tried myself as a driver on the road from Porto Ota to the Gulf of Girolata and back. Despite the speed of 30-40 km/h, it was scary in places! The road is laid along the traverse of the mountains. On one side of the mountain, on the other a cliff into the sea. Impressive. Lucky with the weather. The sun and a light breeze. With a strong wind, it would be scarier and less fun. In short, we must try! No photos and descriptions will replace the live experience.

    One of the shorter hikes in the Calanches the Piana region but not less beautiful because you get the full view and experience of the beauty of the Calanches.
    If you start at the football field you have an free and easy accessible parking place. We started at the other side where you can find the hike on google maps along the road. If you are early you can find a parking spot there but later on the day that can be problematic. If you tart there you have a steep path up right from the start. Beautiful to walk and already very quick you get beautiful views on the mountains, the rock formations and the sea.
    Eventually we arrived at the parking lot I talked earlier about. From there we had to walk to the last part back along the road. Be aware for traffic there.
    The walk was around 1,5 hours.
