Bonifacio is the southern extreme of the French island of Corsica. This picturesque harbour town is home to approximately 4,000 inhabitants.
Bonifacio enjoys a typically mild Mediterranean climate. Summers are fairly warm with the temperature rising as high as 27°C. Winters are mild with the temperature hovering around 15°C. Spring and autumn are pleasant.
Bonifacio’s location on the Mediterranean Sea made it an important acquisition during the Medieval Ages from a trade point of view. Separated from Sardinia by just the 11 km wide strait of Bonifacio, made it susceptible to attacks from the rulers of Sardinia, and thus, it had to be fortified.
Today, Bonifacio is an idyllic resort town, especially popular with mainlanders from France and Italy.
