Bonifacio Creak, Corsica (Corse), France


This is a photo taken from Bonifacio (Bunifaziu in Corsican), a town the southern tip of the island of Corsica, France. Bonifacio is located directly on the Mediterranean Sea, separated from Sardinia by the Strait of Bonifacio. It is a city placed on the best and only major harbor of the southern coast, giving it the distinction of being the southernmost commune in Metropolitan France. The southern coast in the vicinity of Bonifacio is an outcrop of chalk-white limestone, precipitous and sculpted into unusual shapes by the ocean. Slightly further inland the limestone adjoins the granite of which the two islands, Sardinia and Corsica, are formed.
