Isola di San Pietro, a history of sea routes, departures and moorings.

Carloforte tells a story of seafarers. The adventure of Genoese ancestors who made this wild land their home and the heart of a flourishing fishing and voyaging fleet. Welcoming those who now come - sailors for a moment - to get to know its shimmering sea and unique but not so distant land.


Winter on the island

Winter also comes to San Pietro island. But it is short and different: its climate is mitigated by the surrounding sea, and by February it already gives the promise of Spring. In the meantime, the mistral wind puts on a show on the northern and western coasts of the island, waves thundering on the cliffs and reefs, while in the town the easterly winds arrive dampened by the close proximity of nearby mainland Sardinia.
