Italy - May 18th, 2011

The Strait of Bonifacio separates the French island of Corsica (above) and the Italian island of Sardinia (below). It is about 7 miles (11 km) wide and also divides the Tyrrhenian Sea (right) from the western Mediterranean Sea (left).

West of the straight is the Gulf of Asinara, a large bay between Asinara Island (on the western extreme of the gulf), Cape Falcone and the town of Castelsardo, in northern Sardinia, Italy.
