INTRODUCING CAVALLO

Cavallo’s riches were first discovered by the Romans, who visited to quarry fine granite for their villas and statues. But it wasn’t until the 1960s that this jewel-like island became a luxury escape, favoured by film stars and famous musicians. With its French soul and Italian style, Cavallo enchants all who visit. The best thing is, it still feels like one of the Mediterranean’s best-kept secrets.

Things to do

BEACHES

From above, Cavallo’s rugged coast gives it the outline of a jigsaw puzzle piece. Look closer, and you’ll see the rocky outcrops hide secluded coves and wild, deserted beaches. Pack a picnic to find a spot all to yourself. Or head for the private beach owned by the island’s luxury hotel, and lounge on sunbeds within easy reach of a chic bar.

SPORT

If you can bear to leave the beach, Cavallo offers plenty of opportunities for those seeking something more active. Play a round or two of golf at the island’s 18-hole course, enjoying beautiful views with every swing. Or head off-shore for a day of scuba diving. Cavallo is part of the Lavezzi Archipelago, a protected nature reserve. The warm, clear water and wealth of marine life make it the perfect place to explore beneath the surface.

DAY TRIPS

Much of Cavallo’s charm is to simply pause and soak up the tranquillity of your surroundings. But, with Corsica just a short ferry journey away, it’s simple to break up the beach trips with a day of sightseeing. Bonifacio, with its cliff-top citadel and buzzing harbour, is a must-visit location. Lose yourself in the web of alleyways in the old town. Then climb gravity-defying stairways and explore gothic churches, before returning to Cavallo for a well-earned meal of fresh seafood.

Tiny Cavallo has few roads and no cars. The best way to enjoy the scenery is to stroll, cycle or even rent an electric golf buggy.
