Located on the southern shore of Gulf Valinco, between Ajaccio and Bonifacio, Port de Propriano is a commercial, tourist and fishing port. It is located inside a cove between Scogliu Longu and the quays of the commercial port. The marina, located south-west of the commercial area, is composed by two adjacent basins which can be entered from different entrance points. The larger basin, whose entrance is signaled by a green light, has an elbow 440-metre-long breakwater, while the second smaller basin is located south of the commercial port.
The marina offers 330 mooring places, 40 of which are reserved for transiting boats up to 48 metres and with a draft of 4.5 metres in the major basin, 2.8 metres in the second one. The structure provides yachtsmen with water, electricity, a gas station, a 20-ton crane and a slipway, in addition to a supermaket, a cafeteria, some hotels and restaurants.
If you come from North, overpass Pointe de Porto Pollo by paying attention to the shallows in Rochers du Turavu. If, on the contrary, you come from South, set course to the bottom of the gulf until you see the village of Propriano. While approaching the harbour, mind the shallows located 150 metres north of the lighthouse of Scogliu Longu. At night, please approach the harbour by remaining in the white sector of the lighthouse, passing North to avoid the shallows.
To enter the main basin, leave the green light placed on the breakwater on your right and the white one on the left if you prefer the smaller basin. The marina is perfectly sheltered. Ships and ferries have the right-of-way. Anchorage is forbidden inside the commercial port. Once you've entered the harbour, please contact the Port Authority for mooring instructions.
Nestled at the bottom of Gulf Valinco, Propriano is a popular tourist destination, surrounded by several beaches, such as Plage du Corsaire, Plage du Lido, Plage du Cape Larosu and Plage de Portigliolo. The yachting club rents windsurf boards, catamarans and kayaks and it organises boat trips.
North of Propriano, there is the archaelogical site of Filitosa, one among the biggest prehistoric sites in Europe. Recognized "World Heritage Site" by Unesco, the site is famous for its unique collection of megalithic monuments, genuine sculptures often with anthropomorphic shapes.
