At the bottom of a narrow inlet rimmed by chalk white cliffs, with a fascinating past yet thoroughly modern and proud of it, Bonifacio has become something of a “must” amongst the boating community.
With close to 10,000 stopovers per year, it is France’s most popular destination in the Mediterranean. Some of the most stunning superyachts in the world moor next to modern sailboats and the more traditional lateen-rigged wooden vessels.
The port, dominated by the old town and citadel of Bonifacio, has succeeded in preserving both its social and cultural identity, and has a unique charm and lively atmosphere that’s hard to match.
Old sea dogs and celebrities cross paths with well known politicians and sportsmen as they stroll along the quay or linger in the cafes.
The stunning majesty of the scenery of this singular and heavenly location, at the heart of the Bonifacio Straits International Marine Park, never fails to impress.
