Corsica is a weird and wonderful island, replete with gorgeous beaches and breathtaking mountains. Bonifacio, a harbor city on the southern tip, is rich with history. Check out the prehistoric Araguina-Sennola caves and the Genoese towers, and be sure to take the train through the mountains to the beach—a spectacular adventure. Biking, hiking, rafting and diving are popular activities.

I'd read that Bonifacio was at the top of the list of tourist hot spots, so maybe I was expecting something more magical.
It's obviously an attractive area and formations, but it's popularity does make it suffer from both high expectations and easy access.
Despite it being a Monday night in September, Bonifacio was so bury, we had to take the ferry to Santa Teresa to get a room for the night. However this turned out to be a bonus, as the views from the ferry were excellent.

Perched high on the cliffs overlooking the port, the Citadel has all the charm you might expect from this very old town. there are some amazing views to be had, but be aware that the town does get very busy.
It's a tough climb from sea-level, so you might like to consider the mini-train that runs from the harbour area and will take you right into the heart of the Citadel

the little beach in Sperone required you to walk about 15 mins from the parking space. do not trust the google map on this because you can't go further than the parking spot. you will first walk to the Sperone beach which is beautiful and you can actually walk into the water to the opposite island. But you don't stop and keep going through the woods, you will then arrive the paradise crystal clear water and fine sands.

These Islands where beautiful 40 years ago. Now forget it, people arrive per boat every 15 minutes. The island is overcrowded and there is no way to escape from all of these loud tourists. Even if you walk around the island it will only take you oen hour and then..

Once used to carry water to the Citadel, these 187 steps carved into the limestone cliff now take visitors from the city down to the sea. In the winter, the king of aragon steps open only the morning to monday to friday ( 11h-12h) and when the weather is good !
The legend about stairs is much more interesting than stairs itself. I would not recommend it for over 50 people. Just because your heart rate doesn't need any new challenges with no great reward at the end. These are stairs and museum at the end. Nothing more.

Located a ways up the little calanque from the Old Port, this is where you get the Moby ferry to Sardinia. There are a couple of nice little cafes here, but not as much to do back in the Old Port. There is a road that goes straight up to the high town.

You have to drive to La Tonnara, but the drive is worth it - about 15 minutes outside Bonifacio, toward Sartene. Rustic parking area. Chaises can be rented at beachfront restaurant.
You must have sturdy beach shoes here. Beach is rocky, and beautiful. Water is clear. Views are spectacular, particularly late in the day. Worth the visit

You haven’t visited Bonifacio properly if you haven’t visited the Bastion de l’Etendard. It is that iconic fortress dominating the postcard views after all! It summarizes everything that Bonifacio stood for over the ages – it is the best way to understand the history of the place and at €2.50 entry it is one of the cheapest thing you can pay for in this fancy tourist-centred town. And what a very interesting place to visit! Just follow the paths and relieve the history of this fortress from medieval times to WW2, it is absolutely fascinating. There are plaques in English at strategic points so it is quite straight forward. The views from outside make it truly worth paying the entry fee, everywhere you turn is postcard perfect. And don’t miss the themed exhibits inside, these are found in the garrison rooms and give you a good background of the use of the fort over the years. You can just imagine what it must have been like being one of the defenders inside these rooms! Some rooms even have weapons and helmets that you can handle to give you an idea. Sometimes you wonder if you are in a movie set or not, it is quite atmospheric and beautiful up there. Don’t wonder whether you should visit or not, just go!
