Capraia Isola

Imagina a big rock of lava, eight kilometres long and four wide, with no beaches, no umbrellas, no traffic lights and clubs.

There are so many “without” that is easier to tell what is on this island. A beautiful small harbour and a little village of small, colourful houses. 

One road, a castle, two towers, three policemen, a postman, two grocery stores, four fishermen, a school, a priest, many cats, so much lava, plenty of Mediterranean vegetation, fish and birds and some delicious restaurants.

There is a harbour -in summer often full- but just outside there are moorings, well sheltered for most weather conditions (not NE).

There is a very special way of docking to these boys, always call the harbour and the harbour master will assist you, you are NOT allowed to proceed without assistance!
