At the heart of a nature reserve
Figari is privileged with its magnificent 800-hectare coastline, nestling in the heart of the Bouches de Bonifacio Nature Reserve . Its unspoilt coastline is characterised by the absence of built-up areas, offering a natural landscape of exceptional beauty.
Fans of windsurfing and kitesurfing are particularly fond of the spot on the Gulf of Figari, an area that benefits from the libeccio that frequently blows in from the south-west.
The Bouches de Bonifacio Nature Reserve has plenty to offer nature lovers. Hikers can follow the signposted paths winding through unspoilt countryside, discovering a wide variety of flora and fauna.
But this space is a fragile and precious ecosystem where every step counts. The waymarked trails offer walkers a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in a nature that is both diverse and vulnerable. It is essential to follow these marked paths with care, avoiding disturbance to natural habitats and observing the strict rules established to protect this exceptional biodiversity.
By respecting these essential principles, we are preserving not only the natural beauty of this area, but also the sustainability of these unique ecosystems for future generations.
