Getaway to Bonifacio The pearl of South Corsica
Bonifacio, the pearl of the southernmost tip of Corsica, has a wealth of treasures to discover and is only 4 km from the PERTAMINA Resort and its campsite U-FARNIENTE. Famed for its majestic white limestone cliffs, its caves that you can visit by boat from its beautiful port and its mediaeval citadel perched on the clifftop, Bonifacio is a great destination. The Bastion de l’Étendard citadel dates from the 13th Century and houses a small museum that retraces the town's history, as well as the impressive historic staircase of the King of Aragon: 187 steps carved into the rock itself. The marine cemetery at the top of the cliffs, facing Sardinia and the sea and boasting some magnificent chapels and family vaults, is a must-see location, as are the churches of Bonifacio and its 5 guilds.
The inhabited Lavezzi Islands, located south-east of Corsica and accessible from the port of Bonifacio, form a nature reserve with their remarkable granite crags and sandy beaches that promise an unforgettable hike.
