Welcome to Carloforte
The very image of Mediterranean chic, Carloforte offers a refined introduction to the Isola di San Pietro. Graceful palazzi, crowded cafes and palm trees line the busy waterfront while, behind, a creamy curve of red-roofed buildings rises in a half-moon up the green hillside. There are no great sights as such, but a slow wander through the quaint, cobbled old town makes for a pleasant prelude to an aperitif and fine seafood meal at one of the town's wonderful restaurants.
A short drive south of Carloforte, beach-goers can take to the sand at the Spiagga La Bobba, one of a series of small beaches in the south of the island.
