- Scandola Reserve features 2 sectors, Elpa Nera inlet and peninsula of Scandola. The sheer and jagged cliffs contain a lot of grottos and are flanked by many stacks and almost inaccessible islets and coves, like Tuara. The coastline is noted for its red cliffs, headlands and sand beaches.
- Calanques de Piana are the huge cliffs of pink granite which loom above the sea. Dominated by its Genoese fort and houses clinging to the mountain slopes, Girolata is among the emblematic sites of Corsica island. A haven of peace, it lies nonchalantly along Mount Senino's slopes.
- Scandola has Mediterranean climate, with dry and hot summers.
- A law was passed in 1930 prohibiting modification or destruction within Corsica Regional Park. Nowadays, Scandola Reserve is strictly protected to return the region to its natural state.
