The Gulf of Porto is located on the western coast of the French island of Corsica.

It is part of a large UNESCO World Heritage Site that covers much of the island, and is known for its beaches, coastal towns, and mountain villages.

The coastline is spectacular, studded with offshore islands and sea pillars. It is also filled with hidden coves, long beaches of fine sand, sea grottos and high cliffs of blood-red rock.

In addition to ocean activities, there are extensive hiking trails to villages in the interior.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.

Combination
Unusual Local Feature
The Gulf of Porto has some of the most beautiful coastal and mountain villages in all of Corsica. These are connected by steep, twisty roads. The general rule is that if its sunny, people tend to go the coastal villages (and the beach), while if it’s raining, they head to the mountain villages.
Natural
Beaches
The region is known for its excellent beaches, and many visitors spend most of their day there. Once the sun goes down, many people stay on or near the beach, enjoying gelato or one of the many beachside bars and restaurants.Some more popular beaches will rent windsurf boards and kite-surfing boards. Beside sunbathing and swimming almost every beach offers opportunities to snorkel.
