Must see · Island · Wildlife Area
Iles Lavezzi form a small archipelago of granite islands and reefs in the Strait of Bonifacio that separates Corsica from Sardinia in the Mediterranean Sea. On the main island, a hiking path leads you to a 46-foot pyramid-shaped memorial dedicated to the legendary shipwreck of the Sémillante on February 15, 1855 that took the lives of more than 700 soldiers and sailors. Several charter boats at the Bonafacio Marina take you on a cruise to this nature reserve complete with sand shell beaches and the azure-colored sea. These islands provide a haven for swimming, snorkeling, diving, and hiking. By using our Bonifacio road trip tool, you can arrange your visit to Iles Lavezzi and other attractions in Bonifacio.
