The island of Cavallo is part of the Lavezzi archipelago, close to the Bocche di Bonifacio, eight miles from the coast of Sardinia and two miles from Sperone, the Southern tip of Corsica. The private island is the most exclusive spot in the Mediterranean, famous for the spectacular beauty of its white sandy beaches hidden between the rocks where the Bocche di Bonifacio sea wedges itself, creating crystalline turquoise inlets. The island is also famous for its granite and rich vegetation of bay, myrtle and juniper. Well being is part of daily life on the island; tennis, golf, horse riding, diving, excursions and the exclusive SPA with Thalassotherapy pool.
