Located on the west coast of the island, the Piana creeks are undoubtedly one of the most remarkable natural sites that you can see when visiting Corsica.

My suggestion:
As an alternative to the walking tour of the Piana creeks, consider taking a boat tour. It's best to take a small boat with a small crew as their size means they can get closer to the rarer sites, such as the caves and natural pools.
My review

The Piana creeks are red granite cliffs carved through erosion which jut out into the sea from a 300 metre height. Their chaotic forms introduce the imagination to all sorts of jagged and daydream-inducing shapes.

I enjoyed wandering around these many fantastic sculptures, where the contrast between the red rock, the green vegetation and the turquoise sea is truly striking. There are lots of paths and trails in the creeks. Follow some of them and enjoy the different aspects of the site without ever tiring. Most of the existing marked trails begin just outside Piana, one hundred metres after the Pont de Mezzanu (Mezzanu bridge).
