It is one of most beautiful regions of the island and attracts many holidaymakers!
On leaving Sartene, on a winding road, you will come to the famous « Lion of Roccapina », a rock shapep by nature into the form of a lion, shorty after you will reach the coast where a breathtaking landscape awaits you.
– In good weather you can see the Sardinian coast just 12 km from the coast of Bonifacio.
The far South-Bonifacio is a true «open-air museum» with historical monuments that you can visit, e.g. the stone huts called « baracun » and « tramizi » in the surrounding countryside, its marina, its upper town with its magnificent citadel and tiny alleys, its ramparts, its ramparts, its beautiful beaches such as Rondinara…
You can also take the boat from Bonifacio to visit the grotto where, as if it were “painted” in the rock, you will find a «hole» in the shape of Corsica.

You can also catch a glimpse of the Cavallo Islands, which are privately owned, then by boat discover the Gulf of Porto-Vecchio, e.g. Sperone with its many luxurious villas.
