Sardinia Day 7 - Visit to San Pietro Island

The a beautiful sunrise over the lagoon from our hotel started a very colourful day. We visited San Pietro Island by car ferry (40 minute crossing). The island is of volcanic origin with very interesting rock formations. The  coasts are mostly rocky; the western and northern part includes some natural grottoes and is very steep, rocky. The eastern coast, on which the port of Carloforte lies, is more protected low and sandy. The town of Carloforte is very attractive - we only had a short time there - in retrospect it would have been good to spend the afternoon there after successfully tracking down Eleanora's Falcon (next blog)
