    Spectacular scenery on this relaxing 2 hour return hike. Slightly more challenging is the optional climb up the rocks for stunning views of the Aguilles de Bavella at the end. For more reviews ("Definitely recommend it for a first hike in Corsica") see
    The Aiguilles de Bavella (I Forchi di Baveddain Corsican) are rocky spikes that dominate the hill of the same name, meaning 'needles of Bavella'. At 1218 m, the hill connects the Alta Rocca (fr) to the east coast of Corsica. This massif is smaller yet much more popular than the "aiguilles de Popolasca". The site is characterized by jagged peaks, large rock walls and pine trees twisted by the wind. Located in the centre of the "Massif de Bavella", are the seven "tours d'Asinau," or towers of Asinau, the actual "needles".

    A beautiful hike, a bit exhausting but worth it in any case. Do not forget the hiking boots! I ran in tough sports shoes, went too, but it was sometimes borderline. The somewhat strenuous climb is rewarded by a fantastic view.

    The gigantic hole in the granite rock with a diameter of approx. 6 m, caused by tafoni weathering, looks as if it had been blown up by a bomb.
    The very brave climb the last meters to the hole, others enjoy the view from a safe distance.
