Figari is a town in South Corsica, located near the ancient medieval fortified citadel of Bonifacio and the coastal town of Porto Vecchio, famous for its beautiful beaches and its intense nightlife. Nestled between the mountains and the sea, in the heart of a nature reserve, Figari is surrounded by 14 small villages which are worth a visit: you will be able to admire the remains of prehistoric civilisations, Roman ruins and medieval chapels.
The gulf of Figari has remained untouched and is not littered with modern buildings. With its many coves, marine caves, beaches and small islands, the bay is a real paradise for all who love water activities. The southern winds from the Mediterranean Sea make this area a perfect spot for sailing, surfing and kite-surfing. From the Bonifacio coast, you will be able to see the Sardinian coast in Italy, which is only 12 km away.
Hikers will have a lot of fun discovering the many pathways in the surrounding mountains, some of which lead to typical Corsican farms where you will be offered home-made cheese, charcuterie and the local wine. Figari is regarded as home to the most ancient vineyard in Corsica.
