The Best Carloforte Hotels

Carloforte, on the small yet marvelous San Pietro Island, is a wonderful holiday destination. Albeit small, it offers an incredible range of attractions and activities that will make you want to visit. Should you decide to do so, you won’t find shortage of excellent Carloforte hotels.

Needless to say, there is an abundance of beaches and coves to relax. The best ones are Il Giunco, famous for its shallow water and the rushes surrounding it, extremely safe and therefore suitable for families with children; Punta Nera, which overlooks the Sant’Antioco Island and is easily accessed via a wooden path; and Cala Fico, the best beach for diving and snorkeling lovers, home to the Eleonora Falcon and therefore protected since 1991.

The village itself has a unique history and plenty of things to show you. Did you know it was founded by people of Genoese origin? They were coral farmers who worked in the Island of Tabarka (off the coasts of Tunisia) and, once the business was not profitable anymore, chose to establish themselves in San Pietro. This colony was, indeed, Carloforte: you can see the strong Genoese influence in the buildings and in the city’s colorful appearance overall; moreover, the Tabarkine (a dialect resembling Genoese) is still widely spoken in Carloforte.

Now that I got you curious about visiting Carloforte, let’s find you a good place to stay. Continue reading for a selection of the best Carloforte hotels. There’s something for any budget!
