To reach the southern coastline and the seaside resort of Porticcio, you can choose between the coastal road or a sea shuttle. With its three valleys, three rivers, overlooked by two Genoese watchtowers, the whole of the southern coast is a fantastic place to visit and an ideal spot for getting away from it all. It is a real haven of nature where coves and beaches of powdery sand abound and a place where you can practise all types of water sports.

PorticcioThe hinterland begins just a stone’s throw from the beach with circuits that open up magnificent views to the mountains, valleys and villages. Walks of all levels are to be found everywhere. Climb up the Prunelli valley and twenty minutes later you will find yourself in the heart of the deep chestnut tree forests of Bastelica, fatherland of Sampiero Corso.

From Bastelica, climb towards the Ese plateau, and head to Bocognano that dominates the upper valley of the Gravona region, set in a majestic landscape of giant chestnut trees. Half an hour away by foot, you can explore the waterfall of Voile de la Mariée – an impressive waterfall of more than 70m in height.
