Finocchiarola islands, previously connected at the Corsica, consists of three islets which are surrounded by rocks. A ruined tower stands on the E and largest islet.
They are distinguished by their peculiar fauna as well as rare endemic plants. They are home to several species of birds including the famous Audouin's Gull.

To preserve this precious refuge a 380ha nature reserve was established in 1987. the chenal between the last island and the land, is closed by a big wreck, of around one hundred meters, shipwreck which emerge only a few sheets.

Only small boats can pass by surveying, by good weather in the mazes.

Autrefois rattachées à la Corse, les îles Finocchiarola ou Finacchiarola (en corse Finuchjarola) forment un archipel inhabité de la mer Tyrrhénienne. Elles se trouvent toutes proches de la côte nord-est du Cap corse, sur la commune Rogliano, entre la baie de Tamarone (au sud) et celle de Santa Maria (au nord), et sont constituées de trois îlots désertiques entourés de rochers :
  • A Terra, le plus proche de la côte (200 m) ;
  • Mezzana, l'îlot central ;
  • Finocchiarola, le plus grand, le plus haut et le plus au large des îlots (500 m) ; il culmine à 27 m au niveau de la tour ruinée.

Les deux îlots les plus au larges sont la propriété du Conservatoire du littoral aujourd'hui, et le troisième entre dans sa zone d'intervention.

La passe entre la dernière île et la terre, est barrée par une grosse épave, d'une centaine de mètres, bateau naufragé dont émergent seulement quelques tôles. Seule les petits bateaux peuvent passer "à vue", par beau temps, dans ces dédales.

En 1594, une tour littorale fut construite au point culminant du plus grand îlot. Elle était destinée à la défense du Cap corse sous l'occupation génoise et est aujourd'hui en état de ruine.
