Length: 6.2 mi • Est. 3 h 7 m
Enjoy three perfectly wild beaches accessible by boat or on foot from the Bonifacio marina. If you are in Bonifacio and want to enjoy the wild beaches away from the crowded beaches accessible by car, this hike is perfect for you. From the Bonifacio marina, a half-day walk leads to three breathtaking beaches among the must-sees of Corsica. The route is not very interesting as it is a perfectly straight long route in the shrubby terrain without shade for protection from the strong sun but well trained people will effortlessly walk this flat hike. Bonifacio cove, Fazzio and Paraguan are very good swimming spots. Just watch out for the boats during the summer. The water temperatures are very high from July to mid-September (20-28 degrees Celsius). The first beach: the "cove of Bonifacio" has a magnificent view of Bonifacio but too many boats, just take a look at Bonifacio. The second beach: the "calanque de Fazzio has an L-shape protecting it from the waves coming from the deep sea. The expert swimmer may find it funny to swim around the island, or even to dive there. The third beach: Paraguan has crystal clear water and is among the most beautiful beach in Europe.Show more
