Family Friendly Trail should be fairly easy for kids.

Overview

This easy trail allows you to get a beautiful view onto Bonifacio, explore three surrounding beaches as well as Bonifacio's lighthouse.

Need to Know

Parking is available before entering Bonifacio as well as next to the harbor. Both are paying parkings.

Description

The trail starts right behind the L'Araguina campground. The loop can be done either direction, the views are pretty much identical. Doing it clockwise offers more shade on the way back.
This trail can be done as a half day trip, allowing to stop by some of the beaches to swim.

The following instructions are for the counter-clockwise version of the loop:
- Path starts next to the U Veni Qui Sylvain pizza shop. Path is well marked and easy to follow.
- Around .8km, a small fork allows you to go check out La Cayenne, a small beach with a view on Bonifacio's marina.
- Go back to the main trail. At 2km, you'll meet an intersection. You can start the inner loop in either direction.
- At 2.85km, you'll meet another intersection. Stay on the main path to visit the Plage de Paraguan
- Hike back to the intersection and start your way back, going South (4.25km).
- Plage De Fazii is located around 4.8km. This is the most beautiful beaches of the 3.
- Pass the beach and keep following the path (well marked).
- At 6.9km, you have another intersection to go checkout the Phare de la Madonetta.
- Finally at 8.5km, you'll be back at the first intersection. Follow the trail back to the beginning of the trail.

If weather allows, you should be able to see Sardinia from the coastline part of the trail.
