Bonifacio (Bunifaziu) & Around/France

Introducing Bonifacio (Bunifaziu) & Around

With its glittering harbour, dramatic perch atop creamy white cliffs, and stout citadel teetering above the cornflower-blue waters of the Bouches de Bonifacio, this dazzling port is an essential stop. Just a short hop from Sardinia, Bonifacio has a distinctly Italianate feel: sun-bleached town houses, dangling washing lines and murky chapels cram the web of alleyways of the old citadel; down below on the harbourside, brasseries and boat kiosks tout their wares to the droves of day trippers. Bonifacio's also perfectly positioned for exploring the island's southerly beaches and the Îles Lavezzi.
