We enjoyed it together with my partner. Sadly we didn't get to visit the village due to recent events in Corsica :( but R.I.P fisherman's soul. On the trip itself - beautiful views, cave with music - one love! But maybe 2 hours would have been enough. Take the sunscreen! Better take 50, 30 probably won't help :) (Don't expect the captain of the boat to speak English)

It is an experience that I advise to do to those who can at least once when you are on vacation in Corsica we went there in the morning because we had two children aged 6 and 8 and for the heat I find that it was the best the landscape was beautiful and the guides were super nice

Calanches are so beautiful. Speedboat was a good choice as we could enter the caves. Guide was ok but only spoke French. Did not inform us how long we have in Girolata. We were not asked if we want to bathe in English. He only asked in French. It was only me and my husband who spoke English.
