Absolutely incredible drive. About two hours from Porto Vecchio to Sorenzara on the coast again. Go via Zonza through Bavella. Places to stop and eat/drink/picnic on the way. Take advantage of the built in viewing stops. Such a lot to see.

Interesting as it is magnificent to see. The road to get there is difficult. You'll take Pictures as it is really amazing. Try to park near-by as it is busy.

The drive from Porto Vecchio to Nonza and on to Solenzara is stunning. The views of the mountains and the sea in the distance are beautiful. Although twisty the roads are not a problem and I would recommend this detour inland rather than the drive...More

Fantastic mountains, great for hiking, with beautiful views. There are restaurants along the way where you can eat the local charcuterie (yummy) and eat homemade brocciu (a delicious light version of goat cheese)
