We have visited the island as many travelers using the boat from bonifaccio. I can imagine the islands are pretty outside of the summer season...in August it is just too crowded. Too many people, too many boats - basically no way to enjoy the crystal water and white sand. So if you are looking for a quiet experience try to... More

This place is magic, clear water but then a ferry comes in with hundreds of people.. too bad. Number of visitors should be restricted as it is a protected area but it looks like the more people ferry companies can get, the better it is for others..

We took a boat trip from Bonifacio. It was 35€, despite of busy July we were able to buy the tickets in the port just before the departure. You can stay on the island for as long as you want, boats back to Bonifacio depart every hour in summer, not sure about the rest of the year. On the way... More

Amazing National park with incredible nature. Lots of small harbors with amazing landscape. Fishes are swimming in the crystal clear azure water, while swimming you feel yourself like in aquarium. Must have sun cream, water and etc. there is no services just nature. Cala di l'Achiarinu is more suitable for couples with children. And finally, if you decide to visit... More

Overpriced and full of people. It is beautiful but my main complaint is not about its natural beauty as much as it is about how its tourism is handled: There should be a limit to how many visitors this lovely island can handle, at some point this place is going to lose its appeal as it receives thousands per day....

We've taken the tour by boat to the Iles Lavezzi, because we want to see the Bonifacio from the see. The island are interesting, but I'd say nothing special... There are some villas on one of the islands owned by reach people like mr. Berreta (gun producer).

It sounds idyllic, a small island which is also a nature reserve, untouched etc - and untouched it is - except by the hoardes of tourists going through, even at the end of June. The girl on our boat mentioned that in the summer there were up to 3,000 people a day - how is that good for a "nature... More

Seas got rough short of Bonifacio and the cruise boat anchored in a calm crique on the back side of the Lavezzi island. Lunch was served. Afterwards most passengers were shuttled to shore for an exploration of the island's natural reserve. We stayed on board and got acquainted with European tourists (including a Scottish lady from Munich in Corsica to... More

This island would be magnificent but has now been spoiled by the sheer amount of holiday makers visiting the island.

Amazing resting place, very hot and dry...Don't forget to take some water with you and to respect the environment, with taking back all your dishes
