The following information is considered to be the information provided by the port.
Propriano is a small town with a pleasure port on the coast of south-west Corsica, between Ajaccio and Bonifacio. It is sheltered within the Golfe de Valinco, and best known for the beaches nearby. The town is quite easy to reach from the airports at Ajaccio to the north and Bonifacio (Figari airport) to the south. Although a small village existed here several hundred years ago, most of the town we see today is less than 150 years old, having been developed after a road was opened between Ajaccio and Bonifacio in the late 19th century and a port was developed. Very old place, sought for the natural shelter that is the rock of Scoglio Longo; Propriano further evidence of Greek and Roman presence thanks to the graves and remains found on the island of Poraja and around the city. Modern City awash is facing the incomparable gulf of Valinco. The old town consists of Hamlet Tivolaggio, grouped on a granite counter: old houses, an old oven, windmill remains. The town is easy to explore, with a coastal section including the harbour in the town centre and the main beach in the town, the Lido, just a short distance north. The main street in Propriano, lined with shops and restaurants and the centre of activity for tourists, is between the two. Start your visit with a stroll around the harbour. This is the most picturesque part of Propriano, with colourful tall houses overlooking the pleasure boats. Located at the bottom of the Gulf of Valinco and in the heart of the city, the commercial and pleasure port of Propriano is sheltered from the prevailing winds N, W and E.
