Its a great visit, with great views. Not so much walking, definitely worth to go with kids. Parking is also relatively cheap. Would be better with some more shops or bars in the near.

The Capo d'Orso rock formation is worth a visit if in the Northern area of the island. It is accessible for kids as well. There are benches on the way up/down for rest. Views are worth the climb. There's ample parking, and a portable (single)...More

Great spot and wonderful panorama. The lady at the till can speak English and French and is lovely. This is 3€ per person and 3€ for the car park but it's worth to go.

This is bear shaped rocky area with nice views on sea-shore, neighboring islands like Maddalena. Entrance fee EUR 3.
