Island of Capraia

Overview

The island of Capraia, also called Caprara or Capperaia, due to the prominence of caper plants on the island, as well as artemisia, thistles and mastic, is also small and uninhabited, populated by granite rocks. Visitors are not permitted to disembark. However, when venturing out, perhaps by kayak, you can stop a few metres from the banks and take a dip in the clear waters. The seabed hosts a submerged statue of Padre Pio, now Saint Pio.
