We took a boat trip to Iles Lavezzi beginning of September which is slightly off season. Weather is great and there was not too many people, but to be honest I feel it was a bit overrated. The ride and the views are amazing but if you just feel like swimming and enjoying the beach I'll recommend going to Plage... More

Take your swim suit, mask and snorkel, lunch and camera. This place is off scale. You can find smashing waves and quiet secluded beaches. Plan to spend the whole day. Don't rush this great experience.

We went to Bonifaccio and every hour there goes a boat to the islands. In Bonifaccio you can park free at a special place if you buy tickets for the boattrip. Take everything with you like food, drink, towels, snorkle equipment because on the island you have nothing. On the island you must climb to the little beaches.The man on... More

Amazing trip with the boat from the port of Bonifacio to Lavezzi was totally worth the price of the ticket - 35 euro. Natural reserve condition of the island doesn't allow any commercial activity so no shops, no restaurants (and also no public toilets:). So be prepared, take some water and healthy snacks. Natural granite sculptures park surrounded by blue... More

Wonderful day out get there early an find a spot on one of the many beaches, no bars or restaurants so take anything with you you need. The boat returns via the caves and grotto's so you dont have to pay for both trips.

The ride to the islands and back is gorgeous as you get stunning views of Bonifacio, the cliffs and the caves (sdragonara is a must). During peak season - and even in September - the island and its beaches are Extremely crowded (boats from France AND Italy are dropping tourists all day long). We would rather recommend a tour of...

Very interesting rock formations- never seen anything like it before. It's about 30 mins with a boat from Bonifacio , Corsica- the beaches are beautiful and a nice hike around the island.

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..
