Roccapina beach, a short hike to the lion crown. La plage de Roccapina et la couronne du Lion The proud rock of the lion in Roccapina lies looking at the skyline over the sea.This route describes a short but unforgettable hike with scenic view on two of the most famous beaches of Corsica (Roccapina and Erbaju) and a breathtaking walk on the spine and crown of the rock of the lion. If you just want to go to the lion, you may walk straight up in the woods but the path is barely visible. Walking on the lion spine is wonderful but dangerous, use extreme caution as there is a risk of a fatal fall. Climbing on the head of the lion is even more dangerous and should only be done by experienced climbers. You'll enjoy the turquoise clear waters and powder-soft white sand of Erbaju and Roccapina. If you decide to make the tour of the lion, the way is easy to find and it's a very nice 2 hours walk.
