A lovely hike this, along the top of the cliffs gives a great view of Bonifacio sitting there in the sunlight. There are two ways to do this hike : either from the top of the "montée st. Roch" or if you have a car drive out to the military semaphare at Pertusato and park up there. We opted for the 2nd solution as there is not a lot of parking space in town and what there is is expensive.
Just opposite the semaphore is a small parking lot so no problem. Walk from there across the road towards the cliff edge and follow any on the numerous trails towards town. At one point you'll arrive at a ruined army barracks and you'll have to then follow the tarmac for a few hundred metres until just after the x-roads at the top and then once again cross the heath on one of the paths. Nothing is really defined but it is easy enough to find the way to Bonifacio, after all, you can see it there right in front of you. Count roughly 1 1/4 hours each way inc. photo stops.
