Bonifacio departing from Sardinia
BONIFACIO is a star attraction in Corsica, drawing visitors from all over the island and overseas to marvel at its medieval houses precariously teetering on the edge of the imposing limestone cliffs.
BONIFACIO's Old Town, with a labyrinth of narrow streets and historic buildings, was built by the Genoese and is a fascinating place to wander around. BONIFACIO also boasts a busy marina filled with impressive yachts and lined with chic bars, restaurants, and hotels, enhancing the vibrancy of this fashionable coastal resort. The ferry takes about 50 minutes to reach BONIFACIO, it departs from SANTA TERESA DI GALLURA, a charming north Sardinian town, once a fishermen village and now a lively tourist resort.
Corsica is only 12 km far from Sardinia but the landscape variation is dramatic, as it changes from the granite of Sardinia to the limestone of Bonifacio.
From Olbia or Costa Smeralda we arrive, after about one hour drive, to the port of Santa Teresa di Gallura, located just in front of Bonifacio (12 km distant).
Here we take the ferry that will cross the strait of Bonifacio in about 50 minutes.
Once in the town, we will walk up the fortress (or it is possible to use a little touristic train). Inside the castle cars are not allowed.
On the way back, in S. Teresa we can go to see the cliffs of Capo Testa.
