Thereupon, Bonifacio cliff City revealed! The superb undiscovered town beach in Mediterranean Europe… see this as classified.
Despite its shoreline and alleyways of sparkling waters, it’s rarely perturbed by summer crowds. Its best-suited name is “Mediterranean’s Sentinel” also known as “Citadel of Cliffs”. It is inherited in France as its secret town.
Separated from Italian island in Sardina, Bonafacio- the town of Medieval lies up a white limestone perched up-like on a cliff at the southern coast of Corsica. Through volcanic activities, granite rocks from the turquoise waters were formed that separate the two islands that were once joined together.
The diverse mecca was formed after ancient vessels and pirate ships crashing through these crags leaving the sea floor dotted.
the fishermen boats can’t get out of harbor since the waves and strong currents are so undefeatable says Pietro Borsu, a local wood artisan,
The influence of merciless sea wind at the southern-most tip has kept Corsica very pristine. Borsu adds that the reason comes from the act of crags driven that curves the joint military actions of the sea and strong winds, presenting a natural fortress.
With monastery myriad, Roman cisterns, prehistoric sites and chapel, you’d think you are in Italy instead of France to be forgiven.
We get to L’Arinella- the secluded beach which is the highlight of the town that’s only reachable through the hiking route.
Being the town’s oldest, Bonifacio in Corsica was founded at around 830A.D. referenced as the most ancient popular and ever written poem.
It’s found in Homer’s “Odyssey” where the local tribe of Laestrygonians is ran by a Greek hero called Odysseus – the giant cannibals. Although cunning worriers manage to vanish before being swallowed.
Bonifacients have a unique dietary preference. These local specialties include the baby piglet covered and honey-roasted, the aubergines and stuffed clams with grated sheep cheese which are cooked the Bonifacio way. Their specialties are fresh served ricotta with strong scented platters salami of brocciu, terroir, that is hams composed products. As they are the main gems, these towns lie at surface beneath.
Reaching these towns is not a joke, you need to work so hard. Being carved at the cliff flanks that shins down to the sea. Take a good morning walk on King Aragon Alfonso’s Staircase V features 187 steep steps. The inclination is about 45 degrees makes it quite a killer path and if you’re not so active, you might feel a twitch in your thighs and dizziness so, be sure to hydrate.
You can feel the freshness of turquoise waters once at the bottom and enjoy the dives. Escape the scorching sun by chilling out at chemin de ronde, a place inside fortified walls covering citadel.
The graveyard of the sailor (Cimetiere Marin) is led through a walkway with stunning views of a strait. Many activities are run in this place including, trekking, bathing, three-hour randonnée, among others.
There comes also a tiny pebble beach known as Sutta Rocca that faces Grain de Sable, consisting of a very huge fallen rock where the young local dive lovers spend time enjoying swimming.
The best way of exploring the Citadel of Cliffs is by the sea.
Being in close proximity of other Corsica’s top beaches, Bonifacio is prominent than those at remote areas of neighboring Sardinia.
Piantarella beach, is a paradise for windsurfers, as it experiences very strong winds, and visitors rent Kayaks to explore through paddle boards on its sparkling waters.
Through the Bonifacio wilderness, there is a need to be enhanced by the guided squad and jet ski tours, all the way to Sperone tip. #Rewordit
