Top things to do around Figari


Visit Bonifacio

Located 20km south of Figari, on Corsica's southern tip, Bonifacio is a fascinating old fortress town boasting an amazing history. In addition to exploring this history and exploring the old streets and ramparts, the area also offers some superb coastal walks, especially from the nearby lighthouse which affords breathtaking views back across to the town.


Head to Porto Vecchio

This attractive old town, with its small and exclusive harbour, is at the heart of a popular area for holiday-makers visiting Corsica. Head here to sample some delicious and fresh cuisine served up across a variety of eateries, or head to one of the nearby beaches to soak up the sunshine.


Head to some of the superb surrounding beaches

l’Extrême Sud is blessed by a choice of numerous stretches of coastline, perfect for lovers of the beach. You'll find famous beaches such as Santa Giulia and Palombaggia sitting to the east of Figari, while quieter and more rustic bays and coves can be found to the south-west, home to the likes of San Giovanni, pictured below.


Take the coastal walk around Roccapina Beach

The coastal views on offer during this walk are simply stunning, affording fantastic vistas across the coast and to the beach below. This is a great way to get out and about to explore the beautiful natural landscapes of the island, but make sure you pack some decent walking boots.


Sample some of the local wine

There are some superb wineries in the area surrounding Figari, perfect for those who are partial to a drop or two of red or white. One of the most renowned wineries here is Clos Canarelli, arguably the most sought-after wine from Corsica.
