Leave Bonifacio by boat and travel to these islands. Beautiful ocean, a clean uncluttered beach and rocks provide shelter from the wind. Take a walk amongst the rocks, find a spot and photograph some spectacular images. Follow your walk with a swim or a snorkel in this clean clear ocean; there is a world of magic below the surface.

fantastic boat trip to the island ++ the return trip came too soon -- lots of sights seen en route, detailed tour guide ++ tour guide only in french and hard to hear over the roar of the waves

From the port of Bonifacio, take a tours boat for the day to visit Lavezzi island. A natural preserved island where you bring your own lunch. A beautiful natural sight not to miss if you are in Bonifacio.

It's an rock isle, but the most people want to stay at the beaches. It's difficult to find a place in the shadow. There are nowhere toilets, so you find everywhere toiletpapers. The boattrip to and from the isle is beautiful. You get an nice image of Bonifacio, caves and environment.

We took a half-day catamaran cruise to the Iles Lavezzi. The catamaran was rented through the Club de voile de Bonifacio (Bonifacio sailing club). You will find them at the Piantarella beach. We were 9 people on the catamaran and that was perfect. The captain of the boat took us to a very quiet creek of the Iles Lavezzi where... More

It's worth going just for the boat trip alone. Although our one was all in French, it's informative, fun and you get great views of the coast of bonifaccio. The islands are also beautiful, but unfortunately all the boats means it also gets very very busy to the point that its hard to find a place to lay your towel.... More

Amazing cristal water, nice marine animals if you are an addicted of marine biology! I would suggest to take with you all the stuff for spending one day on the island: solar cream, towel, food and waters, paying attention in to not forget anything in the island at the end of the day!

I have been living in Sardinia for 23 years, and Lavezzi is just across the Bonifacio Strait, yet so far I had never had a chance to visit this paradise island until last Saturday. A 50 minutes swift boat ride from Cannigione, delivered us to a fish sanctuary as I only had seen in the Australian and Red Sea Reefs,... More

We rocked up at 8.45am. bought the tickets from a booth opposite the harbour of a boat tour operator, 65 Euros per person including breakfast, lunch and refreshments. 9am, cast off on a big double decked boat. We had roughly 80 people of the boat, which felt full, at peak times the boat can accommodate up to 200 people, shudder.... More
