Girolata, le Sentier du Facteur

Located on the west coast of the island, the bay of Porto with the region of Scandola is among the world’s most beautiful seashores: turquoise clear water and red rocks. The all region is included in the UNESCO world heritage. With its eucalyptus trees, its Genovese fort, its houses clinging to the steep cliffs and its surrounding mountains, the hamlet of Girolata is an ideal place to “get away-from-it-all”. As there is no road, the best way to get there is by boat or by foot via the famous postman’s track: le Sentier du Facteur.
