The Bonifacio area is widely renowned for its exceptional wind conditions, beautiful landscapes and crystal clear water lagoons where the wind rushes in. Like all of southern Corsica, it benefits from significant exposure to the prevailing winds. They make Bonifacio a Magic sector for wingfoil.

15 minutes north-east of Bonifacio, we find the beach of Balistra, a beautiful wild spot. The water is flat but the westerly wind can sometimes be strong and offshore. In these conditions, this wingfoil spot is rather recommended for experienced skiers. However, there is a sort of very shallow pond, just behind the beach, that allows beginners to wingfoilate safely.

The spot of the Gulf of Figari is a large bay, safe and easy to access. It is a perfect spot for beginners and intermediates in wing foil. It is also suitable for experienced skiers who can get out of the bay to benefit from a stronger wind and more space.

Finally, in the vicinity of Bonifacio, there is the famous lagoon of Piantarella. With its white sand beach and shallow waters, it is a very famous wingfoil spot. The westerly wind rushing into the Strait of Bonifacio creates superb sailing conditions for the Wing Foil. Be careful, however, in the middle of the summer season the lagoon quickly becomes overcrowded.
