My wife and I loved it! The swells were fun to paddle in and the islands were beautiful. Our guide was awesome and provided a lot of information about the islands and sea life. We definitely recommend this trip if you are looking for something adventurous.
Vanaf de boot een spectaculair uitzicht op de kust met de mooie stranden en rotsformatie. En niet te vergeten op Bonifatio
Leuke namiddag gehad.
