Bonifacio

Hopping in the hire car again it’s onwards in our exploration of Corsica. This time we’re heading to the pretty town of Bonifacio.

Located at Corsica’s southernmost tip, Bonifacio is a bustling harbour town with an impressive citadel.

The town itself stretches along a narrow, top-heavy promontory where houses perch precariously along the cliff tops.

The port is where much of Bonifacio’s tourist trade is concentrated, including ferries across to nearby Sardinia, boat tours and a handful of bars, clubs and restaurants along the quayside.

The old city is a maze like web of alleyways lined by ramshackle medieval houses and chapels with faded pastel plaster work.

The best way to appreciate the town is via a boat trip around the beautiful waters.

From the boat you can truly appreciate the amazing limestone rock formations.

You can also get a pretty good view from up on the town cliffs. Above you can see the famous ‘grain of sand’ rock formation.

Bonifacio is a beautiful little town which is well worth a stop on your Corsican itinerary.
