Caprera

Except for a resort at Garibaldi Bay, Caprera Island is nearly devoid of development. There are a few bungalows, a shop or two, but the natural beauty is held paramount over tourism. In fact, at the height of the summer season officials limit the number of vehicles allowed on the island’s roads. Flocks of royal seagulls and cormorants, and solitary peregrine falcons soar overhead. In the interior of this 10-square-mile island, Monte Tejalone rises 695 feet above sea level, dominating the skyline of neighboring Maddalena and its smaller peaks. Because of the steady and sometimes strong winds funneling in from the Strait of Bonifacio sailing in Caprera waters is some of the best in the Mediterranean, which is why the most rigorous sailing school in Italy, The Sailing Centre of Caprera, is based on the southwest side of the island. Beaches, coves, and bays abound, making Caprera a sailor’s paradise.

 

Mooring : No moorings are available. Among the best anchorages are the fjord-like Cala Coticcio and Cala Portese on the southeast side of the island.

Dinghy dockage: No dinghy dockage is available, but landing the dinghy is easy in the many coves for exploring ashore.

Facilities : No facilities for yachts are available.
