    Cheapest option to visit Bonifacio. Charge is €50 for a Catamaran and €25 monohull. They knock on your hull early in the morning to collect the fee in cash. There are lazy lines to attach to your bow and then you take your own ropes back to shore. Be careful as not all lazy lines are attached to anything! Quite difficult with only two people and a bit of wind and no help if you call the marinaras on VHF 9. Luckily we had a lovely neighbor who help us in his dingy. We returned the favor to them (when they were leaving and getting pushed into another boat) and another boat entering the next day. The Sailing community is so wonderfully friendly! Bit of swell from the large ferries who park at the entrance of this Cala but the surroundings are pretty. Bonifacio is well worth the visit though! Cute hilltop village.

    Mooring a little complicated on dangling and on the ground. Essential appendix for mooring. Very well sheltered from the swell but you do not feel bad wind in the mast. the boat does not move if it is well moored. no reception service.

    Amarrage un peu compliqué sur pendille et à terre. Annexe indispensable pour l'amarrage​. Très bien abrité de la houle mais on ne ressent pas mal le vent dans le mât. le bateau ne bouge pas s'il est bien amarré. pas de service d'accueil.

    This is an incredible spot IF you have more than 2 people onboard and a dinghy ready to help you get your stern lines onshore to the rocks, or if you can get help from the other boats already moored up. Don’t expect the Capitanerie to send anyone, even calling on the radio is futile, they won’t, but what they will do is knock on your hull at the slightly rude hour of 8am to collect their fee (€50 for us, no assistance, no water, no electricity) and it is VERY difficult to get stern lines ashore and the sometimes sub standard bow lines on. If you can get on then you are just a short way out of the main VERY busy marina.
