8. Ajaccio: Day Trip Boat Tour to Bonifacio
Explore the beauty of Bonifacio on this day trip from Ajaccio, and make the most of your day by traveling in a fast, semi-rigid boat. Marvel at the Lion of Roccapina, discover the Lavezzi Islands, stop at Bonifacio port, have plenty of swimming opportunities, and more. After making your way to one of the tour starting points, board your vessel and speed off over the water. Reach the emblematic Lion of Roccapina, and admire this 144-meter natural sculpture that seems to watch over its Genoese tower. Stop here to enjoy the magnificent beach and take a swim in warm, crystal-clear waters. While you do this, your captain will prepare a “nustrale” aperitif for you, a tasting of charcuterie and rosé wine from local terroirs. Next, continue to the paradisiacal Lavezzi Islands, an archipelago made up of 23 islands that bathe in a turquoise and emerald sea. Enjoy the chance to refresh yourself again during a swimming break. Move on in the direction of the lagoon of Piantarella, the largest natural swimming pool in Corsica, then admire the famous panorama of southern Corsica: the majestic cliffs of Bonifacio, which can reach 100 meters above sea level, and the old town perched on the white cliffs. Disembark at the port of Bonifacio for 2 hours of free time. Stop to eat (at your own expense) in the many restaurants or bring a picnic to enjoy in one of the many unique places offered by this charming city. Later, return to the sea to visit all of the caves nestled in the middle of the breathtaking cliffs. Continue to marvelous wild beaches, the Anse de Cala Longa, where you can swim again. Finally, get one more chance for a swim in Anse de Cacao where you can jump from the boat into the clear water. Afterward, make your way back to the tour starting point.
