At the southern tip of Corsica is the hilltop town of Bonifacio, from where ferries ply to neighbouring Sardinia and the islands of Lavezzi and Cavallo. Bonifacio enjoys a stunning isolated location at Corsica's southernmost point, with a narrow peninsula of dazzling white limestone cliffs creating a town site unlike any other.
The town is split into two distinct areas: The picturesque port is lined with cafes, bars, restaurants and chic boutiques. In sharp contrast, the much photographed ‘VilleHaute’ is a maze of narrow streets flanked by tall Genoese tenements, and rises seamlessly out of sheer cliffs that have been hollowed and crafted by the wind and waves. Here you'll find the ruins of a Franciscan monastery and the Eglise Ste-Majeure built in the 14th century. Besides the beautiful setting, there are many good restaurants, shops, nightlife and an excellent golf course nearby.
Walkers will be rewarded with fantastic cliff top marked routes; and for those who prefer to sit back and relax, Bonifacio's sandy coves to the north of the Bonifacio Sound will surely delight.
