Less than an hour’s drive around the bay is the harbor town Ajaccio, most famous as the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte, and remains Corsica’s main urban city, with several museums and excellent restaurants. Situated along the southern west coast, it’s at the northern most shore along a large bay between Gravona and la Pointe de la Parata and the trendy route des Sanguinaires area to the west.
The Iles Sanguinaire sit just off shore and La Plage de Porticcio is just over twenty minutes drive and is one of the nicest beaches along the rugged Coti-Chiavari.
The charming village of Olmeto is an hour south above the hills and canyons of Propriano with beautiful views of the Gulf of Valinco. Situated between the headlands of Capo di Muro and Campomoro, the bay stretches along the rugged west coast from the sleepy, laid back village of Porto Pollo to the lovely seaside village of Campomoro, and is dotted with beautiful white sand beaches and coves. Plage du Lido, Cupabia and Plage du Corsaire are two of the best and further south is one of the wildest coastlines on the island.
Sartène also lies to the south and is said to be the most Corsican of Corsican towns with cobbled stone streets and historic atmosphere. Just a short drive north is the magnificent archaeological site of Filitosa with the stunning Neolithic megaliths. North of Porto Pollo is Cupabia – one of the most scenic of the Valinco’s region.
