Bonifati is both a seaside resort and a medieval hill town. The seaside town has developed over the current times and boasts long sandy beaches, occasionally interrupted by small rocky headlands that add charm while offering protection from the waves, with some small breakwaters along the coast that create tidal pools. The coast is also dotted with many stone watchtowers, built during the seventeenth century to prevent the Saracen invasions.
In contrast the historical centre of Bonifati, is mainly hilly and mountainous; its village is protected and located within the ruins of an ancient castle, nestled between two hills both with a large cross on top. The summer calendar is also filled with concerts and food festivals which take place at the seaside town and inland hamlets. Notable places of historical, artistic and cultural interest which are worth a visit are Palazzo De Aloe (today known as Palazzo del Capo), Torre di Parise and Torre di Fella. Cittadella boasts two churches: the Parish Church of the Santissima Annunziata and San Francesco di Paola and the Church of San Michele Arcangelo.

The larger town of Paola is approx. 30 drive south and here there is a captivating mix of ancient and modern – from the Sanctuary and birthplace of San Francesco di Paola to the amenities required for modern living eg, shops, bars, restaurants, a long stretch of beach with beach bars and lidos in the summer months and a number of festivals hosted throughout the year.
