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.

  • The Lavezzi Islands is wild and very beautiful. along the rocks many fish are to be seen with mask and snorkel. Don't miss

  • This place is simply heavenly. I have never seen such clear water in such a protected setting, consisting mainly of rocks. You will twist here and there small sandy beaches or swim, but watch out for jellyfish. There are few areas of shade, and there were people (end of September) so I would advise against during the high season.
