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.
