Many of the reasons tourists make the trip to Figari is for the surrounding towns and attractions. Surrounding the town, however, are many beautiful natural places that are worth a visit. The most prominent of these is the looming Mount Cagna towards the northern part of the town of Figari. This mountain has a lot of appeal to both rock climbers and casual and seasoned hikers alike with a peak that stretches beyond a thousand meters above sea level. For the less adventurous hikers, to the south of the town you can find some less demanding hiking routes and if you explore enough you might come across a reservoir that is fed by the Ruisseau de Ventilegne. It supplies the town with water and is also used for the irrigation of the vineyards in the area.
If you venture south out of town, you?ll eventually stumble across Bonifacio, a small town that plays berth to many a luxury yacht that moor right alongside fishing boats and other vessels. The village itself is very quaint and is almost always explored on foot where you?ll walk on classically cobbled streets and get glimpses of the unique architecture in the village. Once you?ve explored the town, take a boat ride to the many sea caves and tiny inlets around the Bonifacio coastline.
