    The town of Propriano is known as an ancient fishing harbour and today as a small town tourist town with nice beaches. We went to Propriano as last area on our discovering of south Corsica.

    At the end of our south Corsica tour we concluded that Propriano would be a nice origin for walking and visiting of south part of Corsica. Anyway, we traveled from Sartene about 10 km in direction to the west coast. Actually Propriano is located in the middle of Gulf of Valinco on great location with harbor and marina. Propriano is today valued by traveler and visitors who enjoy hiking in mountains and sunbathing on colorfull beaches. In high season the harbor of Propiano manage as ferries from Sardinia, and ferries from mainland of France Toulon and Marseille.
