Dominated by a mid-19th century lighthouse, Cape Sandalo is a wild promontory with a series of rocky coves and impressive cliffs offering great views of open sea and jagged coastline. Here you will feel almost like at the edge of the world, suspended between the sea and the sky. For encompassing views of the surroundings, climb 124 steps to get to the lighthouse lantern. A long stairway leads all the way down to the sea, but a boat trip provides a safer and more comfortable way to explore the rocky shore. Birdwatchers will be excited to learn that rare falcons nests in the nearby birdlife reserve. A visit to Cape Sandalo represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Carloforte trip itinerary maker site to plot your vacation.
