"Boat trip to Capo Rosso, Scandola and Girolata." Porto Things to Do Tip by pfsmalo

Porto Things to Do: 6 reviews and 30 photos

Down on the port there are 3 companies that do boat trips out around Capo Rosso, Girolata and the Nature reserve of Scandola. They all have roughly the same price and all take about 3 3/4 hours. Cost is 40/42 euros per person. It's certainly not cheap, but for an almost 4 hour trip to some of the finest scenery around the coast of Corsica, I feel it's well worth it. We went with the Porto Linea company who do also have shorter trips, just to see Scandola or Les Calanche de Piana and the Capo Rosso. You'll find all the ticket sellers down near the hotels and restaurants even up until 22h00 so you're not likely to miss out. Trips start at around 8h30/9h00 so you have enough time in the morning except probably for July/August, and go from the marina just under the Genoan tower.

Tip : If you take your car, go round on the other side of the river from town, the parking is free there, not so in town.
