Le cap Sandalo (134 m), situé sur la côte W de l'île San Pedro, massif et abrupt, est dominé par un phare, tour blanche haute de 30m sur une maison blanche à un étage, construit en 1864.

Le cap est débordé par un îlot appelé Il Corno.

C'est le phare le plus à l'W d'Italie, la dernière lumière rassurante que les navires rencontrent sur la route du sud vers Gibraltar. Sa lanterne se déplace dans l'obscurité de la nuit jusqu'à 28 miles.

Il capo Sandalo (134 m), è costa W dell'isola San pedro, massiccio e brusco, è dominato da uno faro, torre alta di 30 m bianco su una casa bianca con un piano, costruito nel 1864.

Il capo è preceduto da una piccola isola, chiamata Il Corno.

E' il faro più occidentale d’Italia, l’ultima rassicurante luce che le navi incontrano nella rotta da sud verso Gibilterra. La sua  lanterna solca il buio della notte fino a 28 miglia.
