Urbino pond walk

Walk along the coast: Urbino pond Recommended by a local: Raymond from Bastia How to get there: from Ghisonaccia to the marina of Erba Rossa (towards the sea). Before the marina turn left on a little road. After 1km, you reach a big parking lot, go to the left (crossing the pine forest of Pinia) following the arrows "Parcours sportifs", continue for 3kms following the arrows "Plage et Mer". At the double arrow, turn right and go to the last parking lot by the sea. From there, go to the sea by the N-E trail. Follow it to the north for about 1.5kms along the lagoon to reach the 10m wide canal through which the sea penetrates the lagoon. You can picnic under a large pine tree beside the pond. When returning to Pozzu, take the path that runs along the south-east bank of the pond. Continue, for 2kms and at a crossroad, turn left towards the seaside to reach the car park (1.5kms). Life of the Pond The Urbinu pond, 2nd Corsican pond for its size and its depth (9m) is divided into two by the peninsula of Isula Longa which characterizes it. The main arrivals of fresh water, Frassone and Funtana vechja, are located north of the peninsula. The pond shelters the largest colony of cormorants wintering in Corsica. A shellfish farm has been created in 1978. Friendly walk Level: Easy coastal walk Duration: 3 hours (approx) Difference in altitude: 10m Length: 6kms (approx)
