Carloforte, the only inhabited center of the picturesque Island of San Pietro, just 60 km from the Cagliari Elmas Airport, offers a lively starting point for discovering the most unspoiled part of Sardinia, and - for its position making it the crossroads of Mediterranean routes - a splendid stopover on routes to and from the Costa Sulcitana and the Costa Verde
It is located on the island of San Pietro, off the sub-region of Sulcis-Iglesiente, in Sardinia; the island, rather large to be occupied by only one municipality, is located about 10 km from the Sardinian coast, and is, together with the nearby island of Sant'Antioco with other islets and rocks near the two named islands, the Archipelago of Sulcis. Carloforte is also an honorary municipality of the metropolitan city of Genoa and is part of the circuit of "The most beautiful villages in Italy".
The history of Carloforte is a wonderful story. The many who know it are fascinated by it, and those who discover it are amazed by the extraordinary nature of the many events that distinguish it. It is no coincidence that more than one intellectual thought of writing a novel or an epic movie on it.
The culture, language and gastronomic traditions of Sardinia, Liguria and Tunisia meet in a unique town, from which one could leave for itineraries full of nature and peace: from the beaches of the South to the western rocky coast, every mile will be a new discovery! And diving face-first in the evening made of the warm colors of the Carloforte promenade, or getting lost in its carruggi with a slice of focaccia, in anticipation of the local tuna specialties, will be the worthy conclusion of a wonderful navigation!
How to get there

Continue straight on Corso Battellieri until reaching the roundabout. Cross the large parking lot, towards the sea to get to the marina entrance.
