Reviews for Port de Plaisance de Bonifacio
A zoo, but a zoo you want to visit, 2017-09-11
Captain: , Annapolis MD (476)

At least in early September, Bonifacio is a zoo. The amount of tour-boat traffic in the harbor is unreal and they have no fear. Add in the ferries, people bused in from cruise ships, etc., and it is crazy both on land and water. But somehow it still works, especially if you go for a hike along the cliff during mid-day and spend your time in town before and after the day trippers. The harbor, including its entrance, is stunning, historic and a must-see for any Med trip. On-line reservation system works ok, depends on the marina actually reading their emails, in our case it required a gentle push from another Corsica port harbormaster to finalize our reservation. Process is first you submit your request for a reservation, then they let you know if they have room when they get around to looking at your request, then you submit a deposit, then you get a confirmation. But at least you get a confirmation. Fairly severe water restrictions were in place when we visited as well but not really an issue. Definitely not a sheltered harbor in a westerly and could be dangerous to enter then, so time your arrival and departure well. Moderately expensive, roughly 160E per night, including tax, power and water, for our 20m boat.

Bonifacio, well worth a visit, 2017-04-13
Captain: , London (497)

Visited in April on a weekend, well before the 'season'. Plenty of space on the pontoons. Capitanerie is closed from 1730 Friday to 0830 Monday but is supposed to be openning 24/7 before the summer. Water and electricity on the pontoons which are open to the quay side, no security. WIFi avaiable from Capitanerie.
The town is well worth the climb and the cliff walk is a must.

incredible entrance and inside, 2014-05-27
Captain: , miami,fl (2241)

one of the harbor entrances in the entire world -- go straight at the cliffs and suddenly it opens up on a hard starboard turn - we went in in late april and tied to wall - no help but easy in - people were great - take the train up to the citadel then walk down - no pump out when we were there but diesel on the dock - good provisioning but a bit expensive as was eating out and drinking -
not to many boats in as early in the season

Stunning views, 2013-09-06
Captain: , Fort Lauderdale (263)

We visited in 2010 and found it one of the most remarkable harbours in the Med. Sheer cliff walls bound the entrance. Once inside the harbour is well organized, stern-to slips with ample mooring lines. Good staff will assist. Well protected place in storms, no surge but wind can be strong funneling through the cliffs.

Very busy place in peak season but they seem to make room for everyone. Even 50-60 meter yachts are guided stern first through the marina to berth at the east end. Marina staff tend to place private yachts along harbour wall and place the bareboats inside the marina docks.

Many places to eat all around the harbour and staff are friendly. Can get overcrowded when cruise ships drop off passengers but they tend to eat on the ship.

This is the place Homer lost his fleet in a raid.
