Bonafacio- continued

03 October 2016 | Bonafacio, Corsica
C&C
We were up surprisingly early the next day and set off to do the walk we had intended to do the previous day. You climb halfway up to the old town and then turn the other way up onto the cliffs to the east of the town. It’s a steep climb but worth the effort as the views are excellent. We spent a hour or so on the cliffs and then walked through the town and out onto the headland at the other side, doing a circuit of that before returning to town for a coffee. The café owners were a bit grumpy and the coffee was moderate but we chatted to a couple from Guildford who were motorcycling around the island and then made our way back down to the boat.

The afternoon was spent shopping and getting ready for an early departure the following day. There was a significant change in number of boats the latter two days as over half the pontoons stayed empty overnight – we really must be at the end of the season now!

We were up at 07.00 and on the fuel dock for its advertised opening time of 08.00……..’Mr Fuel’ turned up about quarter past and we were away by 8.35. Fuel prices in Corsica (maybe France) were the cheapest we have found for much of this year at E1.28/litre.

We really enjoyed Bonafacio, the entrance is spectacular and old town has kept its character, just arrive early and be prepared to sort out you own mooring.
