Bonifacio is an amazing town, dramatically built right on the cliff edge. There's a
great mixture of history and places to shop and eat (although beware of some
extortionate tourist prices!). It gets exceptionally busy, so visit as early as
possible in the morning to avoid the masses (and the heat). There's an attractive
marina with some very flash yachts, where hourly boat trips to view Bonifacio from
the sea (plus visit other locations such as Lavezzi islands) are definitely
worthwhile. They provide written guides in English.
If you park down by the marina, bear in mind you have to walk up a steep slope to get
to the Old Town - not ideal in hot weather! I think there are some car parks higher
up on same level as the Old Town.
We stayed outside of Bonifacio, however the good roads nearby make travelling around
this part of Corsica really easy. There are loads of different beaches to choose
from in the area. We preferred those up towards Porto-Vecchio on the south-east coast
as they're generally more sheltered from the winds and very beautiful. If you like
windsurfing, then head for the beaches such a Piantarella, one of the closest beaches
to Bonifacio. All in all was a great holiday with plenty of things to do, with good
food and friendly locals. We'll definitely be coming back to this part of Corsica,
and look forward to exploring some more beaches in the area - as wasn't time to visit
