Impressive cliffs plunge into the blue sea, dominated by a 19th century lighthouse. Capo Sandalo is the most westerly point of San Pietro island, in the territory of Carloforte, not far from the enchanting Cala Fico, a birdlife reserve where the Eleonora's falcon nests.You can walk down to the sea, with its green, crystalline reflections, by steep paths or a long stairway. The promontory is a series of small, rocky coves and impervious cliff faces. For a safer and more comfortable visit, a boat trip is best.
