The Iles Lavezzi are a group of small, rocky islands that lie part way between Corsica and Sardinia. They are easily reachable by boat from Bonifacio and are an absolute “must do” on my list of things to visit In high season, be sure to book in advance..
Spring is the ideal time to visit. That tip applies to the whole of Corsica, in fact, but is particularly true for these easily over-crowded islands. The barren granite base is softened by the spring light and azure sea, and this home to rare species of wild flowers comes to life in April and May.
Once off the boat, just wander freely, resting when the views or the beaches take your fancy. There are a number of signs to guide you to key points and back to the embarkation point.
I spent a few hours here, strolling and clambering around, slowed down a little by the calls that the colours and curves placed on my camera.
Relax, enjoy and be sure to take drinks and a snack with you as there are no shops or cafes – just a natural slice of heaven.
