Heading for another fabulous Corsican viewpoint now – this time on the Isle de Pietra.
This little spit of land is close to L’Ile Rousse and features a lighthouse at its peak and some beautiful views of the wonderful coastline.
It is connected by a dyke to the port of the commune of l’Île-Rousse in Haute-Corse.
Located in the north-west of the city, the island of Pietra has two highlights: the Pietra lighthouse and the ruined Genoese tower.
Here’s a bit of naff video footage that doesn’t really give a real taste of it!
Naturally the human man goat perches precariously on the precipice in order to raise my blood pressure…
I cautiously approach the edge – the maniac smile says it all!
Here’s the Pietra lighthouse . Blindingly white in the harsh mid-day sun.
