Porto lies between Calvi and Ajaccio on the north-west coast of Corsica. As you drive down from the mountains towards the gulf of Porto you'll see a magnificent landscape, a kaleidoscope of colour, stunning red cliffs, deep blue sea and the distinctive Genoese tower high above the harbour.
"Les Calanques and Scandola"
Porto is located next to les Calanques, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with steep ochre-red rock formations with clinging pine trees sculpted by erosion plunging into the blue ocean. On the other side of Porto is the nature reserve Scandola, a divers paradise.
