Bonifacio is a commune at the southern tip of the island of Corsica, in the Corse-du-Sud of France. Bonifacio is located directly on the Mediterranean Sea and is separated from Sardinia by the Strait of Bonifacio.
It is a city placed on the best and only major harbor of the southern coast and also is a commune covering a larger region including the offshore Isles Lavezzi.
The Bonifacio marine park is a nature reserve which is signed into legal existence by France and Italy in 1993 for the protection of the strait against passage of ships bearing dangerous chemicals.
The port of Bonifacio is placed on the Bay of Bonifacio, a drowned ravine of a fjord-like appearance separated from the ocean by a finger-like promontory. The maximum draught supported by the harbor is 3.5 meters.
