Description
Carloforte is a pleasant and elegant town on the west coast of Isola di San Pietro, with pastel-coloured houses and a seafront tree-lined boulevard full of nice restaurants. A lot of beautiful beaches, both sandy and rocky accessible from town. 
There are coves and nice anchorages to explore around the island if the conditions allow it. 
Ashore: a great place to eat tuna. 
Don't miss: each year, at the end of May the Mattanza which is held in the San Pietro channel; when tuna heading to their mating grounds and are caught in a system of nets to end up in the "camera della morte" (chamber of death). Once in this final net, fishermen catch them with hooks. The Mattanza is a very popular and traditional event on the island, though quite a bloody one.
