The days we went to the Lavezzi islands, the sea wasn't very cooperative. The boat we took left the Bonifacio marina and goes directly to the Island. The ride is quite fast and the people on the open deck in the back were up for a salty shower. When we arrived at the Island, we discovered the hicking trails. The... More

It was a very fun experience to take the boat to Iles Lavezzi, although not for everyone. You have to bring food, towels, umbrella, etc. and be prepared for some walking and feeling like you're lost! There is nothing on the island, not even trash bins. It was really beautiful and definitely a different experience!

Iles Lavezzi is a great day trip from Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio. I would highly recommend! We drove from Porto Vecchio to Bonafacio so that we could have a look around the town before making our way to Lavezzi and also it gave us the opportunity to see the town on the edge of the cliff from the sea (great...

Must take picnic and water. No shade but very windy. Simply gorgeous. If you have the chance to visit, Go. Boat rides are 35€ but you can negotiate down to 25€. Gina & Thalassa are the same company so tickets are valid for both. Cheapest company is "La Mediterranéenne". Smokers, please remember to bring beach ashtrays so you may throw... More

We went twice to the Iles Lavezzi because we just loved it! If you like snorkeling it is the place for you. Lots of fishes, even huge Goliath groupers! It fells like you find yourself in a big fishtank. Don't wait too long to get there though, the place is a protected reserve but there are a lot of tourist... More

This is a must destination, being a protected nature reserve, its like going to your own Galapagos off the coast of Corsica! So serene and wonderful, a real highlight of our trip to Corsica.

The highlight of our trip! We took a catamaran to 3 separate places including the Iles Lavezzi and it was incredible. Tons of fish, crystal water, very natural. A Must see!

Take a boat Bonifacio (€ 35) to the island. There are directions for two beaches, I recommend visiting both. Then there are also cozy small beaches not indicated. Good place to snorkel. Follow the paths and respect the vegetation of the island !! no trees so it is essential umbrella, sunscreen and bring food and water. In 30 minutes you... More

The best way is to go there with your own charted boat and enjoy the enchanted spots. Walking is nice, but diving with all the fishes is awesome. Don't forget to bring some bread or crackers to gently bait the fish , they will come by hundreds ... With your boat, be extremely careful with the rocks ( for your... More
