Really worth the price (6 of us paid 72€) and the time (approx 80 mins), but be careful with the weather. When it is wind IT is not recommended. We met a very nice sales lady first time and told us that she has to sell the tickets, but honestly she does not recommend it that day due to the... More

All in French but you don't need to understand as most of it is local myth rather than fact. Great to cruise out of the harbour in the middle of Bonifacio's super yachts. Strongly recommended.

Bonifaccio! It's worth the efforts getting here! When you finally find a parkingspot, Bonifaccio embraces you with its charm! The harbour is lined with magnificant boats and nice restaurants and cute shops. You need a good pair of shoes and a fairly good condition to climb your way up to the city on the cliffs. But once you're up there... More

Lots of boats allow you to visit the grotte nearby Bonifacio, along with the calanques. The water has wonderful colours, and there is always a guide on the boat giving interesting/funny informations (in French, actually, but probably there are some English tours as well). The view of the citadel from the sea is wonderful.

The price for the boat-trip is 17 euro per person. The trip lasts one hour, and the view is amazing! Unfortunately the guide speaks only French, but it definitely worths the price!

The 75 minute boat trip from the marina to visit the caves and see Bonifacio from the sea was well worth it. The boats captain showed his skill in taking the boat into a cave not much wider than the boat and we were all amazed to see daylight streaking in from a large hole in the caves roof. We... More

Bonafacio is the scenic jewel of Corsica and the one hour boat cruise is the best way to enjoy it. You enter Bonafacio from N 198 highway and are greeted by several parking lots that charge by the hour to max.11 Euro. Try to get one of the lots closest to the marina particularly if mobility challenged. There is a... More
