Lunch stop on a Porto Vecchio to Bonifacio cruise.

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... read 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.

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...
