What travellers are saying
- We sailed across from Sardinia and preferred this to the islands off Sardinia as it was much quieter and more peaceful. The water was crystal clear, incredible fish life so we snorkelled for hours. Cute beaches and rocky headlands to explore on foot. Such a peaceful place to sleep on anchorageWritten 14 October 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Wonderful boat ride to the Grotto but very crowed when you arrive at the Grotto. Many steps to climb up and down so not handicapped accessible or for anyone with walking problems. Some steps are very steep. If you can walk, its very beautiful once inside.Written 1 September 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Very steep however there are handrails to help. I suggest only doing this if in good fitness levels as it's strenuous especially in the heat. You are required to wear hard hats due to the the way the staircase is carved, to ensure safety, however mostly fine unless you are very tall. It costs €5 pp (Sept 22).Written 11 September 2022
- We went in August, but somehow the beach still had enough space such that it didn't seem overflowing with people. Waters were crystal clear, and the waves were not too strong. A great find!Written 30 April 2022
- This nice beach is only a 10 minute drive from Bonifacio and you can easily park your car. By the parking you have 2 restaurants. You have the main beach and you walk opposite to the restaurants, you find smaller beaches were you can be alone. It is very safe to swim but not very sheltered when windy.Written 26 October 2021
- Once you pass the Strait of Bonifacio from west to east by yacht, you should continue north-east and hug the coastline. About twenty miles further from the strait this beautiful bay is located. It's full crescent-shaped and its turquoise waters and white sandy beaches are perfect for swimmers and beach goers. The yachts anchored nearby are the perfect background. Not to be missed.Written 6 June 2022
- Great symbol that you're near Bonifacio and Corsica, as this is one of the first things you see if arriving by ferry from Sardinia.Written 31 July 2019
- This cemetery is at the end of the peninsula past the old town of Bonifacio, and adjacent to the Santateresa Hotel, where we were staying.
We went in the early evening, when there were few people around.
Interesting place with an impressive array of family chapels.
Worth a visit if you have time when in Bonifacio.Written 26 October 2019
- The port has a great hustle and bustle about it! Plenty of restaurant choices and boutiques if you want to indulge! Very picturesque place! Small tip as you'd expect:the restaurant prices are more expensive at the port than in the old town!Written 5 September 2022
- A beautiful place with wonderful beaches, turquoise, clear sea. Beautiful scenery, a wonderful place, the rocks, coves. Amazing place to discover. I absolutely recommend it.Written 29 June 2022
- just behind the gate. It is some kind of mechanism that probably rolled down to shut the gate. Huge Genovese bastion. Definitely worth a visit.Written 17 May 2019
- Not the nicest beach we visited, but perhaps because the wind was stronger than on other days/beaches. The dirt road is long and rough but worth the effort to get there. Good beach cafe, and some other amenities, and some more shelter to the southern end. Sea is shallow a long way out, and special area has life guards for kids to play in the sea.Written 12 July 2016
- If you have the time, it is an easy 5 to 10 minute walk from the centre of the citadel. On the way there are great views and before you reach it there is the very interesting cemetery. It is only 2.50 Euro to enter and you head down the stairs. We had done the Escalier du Roy the previous day and these steps are not as challenging. There are some interesting military museum pieces as you make your way down and you come out at the southern most point, jutting out into the sea. Some of the information is in a couple of languages, including English, which made it more interesting.Written 13 September 2018
