The Bavella Needles tower over southern Corsica. These impressive peaks are a must if you're in the area. The walks are suitable for all ages and levels.

My suggestion:
Parking can be a problem in peak season. So I suggest you get there early in the morning.
My review

The Bavella Needles comprise of 7 peaks: the 7 towers of Asinau. The only one accessible to hikers is the Punta di a Vacca (1,611m). La Punta di u Pargulu (1,785 m) can be reached, but it's part of the GR20 hike.

To reach Bavella during your holiday in Corsica, you'll need to follow a steep, winding road. Once there, drive carefully as the free car park is covered with potholes and bumps. If needs require, there is another, fee-paying car park.

All in all it's great fun exploring this spikey landscape. The contrast between the grey rock and pine trees is a beautiful sight. You can choose between two hiking trails - or simply follow your nose!
