Richtis Gorge Reviews
Abbiamo lasciato l’auto al parcheggio dopo il paese, abbiamo fatto quindi il percorso a scendere.

It is not an easy route, I recommend to bring spare shoes, one of us has slipped in the water and finished the path with wet feet. We drove up to the beach where, under the Tamerici, there are tables and benches to eat and also a water fountain. We then returned to the street, very steep and long, not to do if there is too hot. For those who do not want to work advice to drive to the beach and go back up to the waterfall. Beware, the road is in my opinion dangerous to do in the car.
Je rejoins tout à fait les avis précédents des membres de la communauté à savoir que l'aller/retour parking d'en haut/plage est très physique et qu'il faut avoir une très bonne condition pour le faire... more »I agree quite the previous opinions of the members of the community to know that the go/back parking of the top/beach is very physical and that you have to have a very good condition to do it in a reasonable time. Beware of some passages in the rocks, the multiple crossings of the torrent and the markup a bit random (not in CAF version!). Wear shoes that are suitable to take water because it is impossible to cross on dry feet. Personally, I would not take children to this site in view of some passage where we really rocking in version "crapahut" but as always "everyone lives his life". Last technical point: before you go take a good weather forecast because otherwise, in case of thunderstorms in the gorges, you will have to climb faster than the water rises! In terms of the site itself, it is really worth spending a day. The waterfall is a delight, Ditto for the beach. For those that the A/R discouraged, possibility to go down to the beach by car and back up to the waterfall. In this case, for children, it will be more acceptable but still provide adequate equipment. Good hike to all!
Beautiful scenery. Not a hard walk to get there but there are some tricky footings along the way
Beautiful colours, nice hike! Connects to a beach with many stones. Not good for laying down, but for snorkelling it's good. Be careful when strong Northern Wind, the sea gets very wild then. At the beach there are trees with under them table and bech for picnics. You will also find drinkable water to refill your bottles for your ways back.
