Activities in South Corsica

THERE'S SOMETHING FOR EVEYONE...

The natural beauties of South Corsica require exploration.

During your stay in our spa hotel in Porto Pollo, we offer a whole range of activities, designed and animated by experts. By bike, a hike for a fascinating outing, a walk on a rich and open land. Fancy a relaxing stroll or rather some exciting thrills on land or at sea, it’s up to you.

Scuba diving

Adjacent to our hotel, the organisation “Porto Pollo plongée” will take you aboard Nina 2, and in 15 minutes at the most, you’ll arrive at the most beautiful diving sites in the Valinco Gulf.

The water is between 18° and 20°C in low season, and between 20° and 23°C in high season until September; with a visibility frequently beyond 25m: discover the Cathedral reefs and their gorgonians, the staggering heights of the Aiguilles and their predators, the groupers of the Small and Large Valleys, not to mention the Garden’s black coral; and much more…

Standup Paddleboarding

Enjoy the sea in a different way.

The hotel provides free Standup Paddleboard rentals during your stay in Serra di Ferro to take you along the coast and discover the beaches and coves near the hotel.
