Carloforte Yacht Charters
Go here to see Sardinia charter yachts.
With a Carloforte yacht charter holiday, you’ll get an authentic taste of classic Sardinia. Carloforte is a picturesque fishing village located on Saint Peter's Island in South-Western Sardinia, a location well known for attracting luxury superyachts. It’s immediately recognisable by its nineteenth-century buildings, rustic fishing boats, and seaside walkways.
Traditional boat-building and famous cuisine at Carloforte
Carloforte has many traditions but its wine and food has gained prominence from two festivals - The “Tabarkan Couscous Festival” and the “Girotonno Festival” - the main event of summer.
World-famous Tuna fisheries were once a vibrant industry in Carloforte. Now on a smaller scale, their produce still reaches the best restaurants in Japan.
A common site in Carloforte is rustic fishing boats with their nets piled up among fishing tools, accompanied by a mixed aroma of fish, seaweed, and salt air.
Carloforte has a long-standing custom of wooden boatbuilding. Traditional lateen sail fishing boats (Luggers) can be spotted around the harbour. The town even has a ‘maritime high school’.
Spectacular landscape and rustic historical remains
Carloforte exudes a rugged beauty with rocky white cliffs, sandy beaches, and natural flora, with some truly spectacular cliff-top views. On the other side of the island is a working lighthouse (Capo Sandalo), dating back to the 1880s.
Continuing around the island, you'll come across the Costa della Mezzaluna, a beautiful inlet characterised by steep cliffs and enticing caves.
On the western coast are beautiful beaches, abandoned mines, small cottages, pine woods, and volcanic rocks. You’ll enjoy the exciting discoveries made along rugged wild paths and climbing routes.
