Photographer's Note

Since 18 December 2007, the Etang d'Urbino (Urbinu in Corsica language) is the Conservatoire du Littoral. Located along the eastern plains, between Ghisonaccia and Aleria, the pond of Urbino has a substantially circular shape. It is separated into two by a large peninsula in the west and has an island in the south west. It has an area of 760 hectares for a maximum depth of 9.2 meters. So far, it was one of many private ponds on the island and was managed by a consortium agricultural land

You can make a loop hike of about 2 hours on the marked trail that starts near the area of Pinya. You along the sea until Pozzo Sale (picture), then the pond to return to your starting point. In the guides, it is said that you can see many birds .... Except for Sale Pozzo, you do not approach sufficiently close to the lake for bird watching. The trail is located on the hills between high forest and scrub pines. However, you walk alongside the sea and can enjoy for swimming.

If you wish to observe egrets, cormorants and black ducks, I advise you to win the peninsula.
