How to get to Bonifacio. From the airport, Bonifacio is approximately 20 km south of Figari airport (Figari-Sud Corse), with transfer options by car, taxi or bus.
Note that traffic around Bonifacio can be notoriously bad in the height of summer, with the main entrance road into town becoming blocked with tourists, delaying journey times.
Saremar (04 95 73 00 96) and Moby Lines (04 95 73 00 29) run ferries from Sardinia (Santa Teresa di Gallura) to Bonifacio, with three or four daily crossings each. One way ticket costs approximately 17 Euros, and 40 Euros for a small car.
