Only 1 hour and 45 minutes from Bonifacio, take a breath of pure air at the foot of the mountainous massif in Southern Corsica! Pass through Porto-Vecchio and then the Ospedale forest taking photos of the Gulf of Porto-Vecchio, and then you will arrive at the magnificent Bavella Needles.


Aiguilles de Bavella in South Corsica, the rendezvous for hikers of all levels from 7 to 77 years!
The Bavella needles dominate the pass of the same name, connecting the Alta Rocca. The massif is characterized by laminated peaks and large rocky walls.
Several dozens of courses from a short walk to a great hike with fabulous landscapes await you!

Ideally situated in the Regional Nature Park of Corsica, the Bavella Needles with their impressive shapes and colours, ranging from red to grey and covered with immense forests. Several hikes start from the Bavella mountain pass at 1 243m altitude. Allow 3 hours round trip for the famous Trou de la Bombe, a very accessible hike.

For the Croix de Leccia, it is a 2-hour round trip. This hike is more difficult so make sure you have good hiking shoes. To reach the Paliri refuge, an easy hike, it will take 4 hours round trip. And finally for the Alpine variant of the GR20, it is a 4-hour round trip for the Punta di u Pargulu and 7 hours for the full hike with a return via the GR20.

In winter, snow is certainly of the essence! Snowshoes, snowmen, and snowball battles guarantee pure amusement!
