Punta Vecchiaia

Characteristics

Description

Pointe Vecchiaia is marked near its extremity by a pyramid.

A light is shown from a structure, 5m high, standing 0.5 mile E of this pyramid.

The night down to St. Florent, stay in the white lighthouse of Punta Vecchiaia to avoid the pitfall of Tignosu. Basically you can see the green light of Fornali mounted on a turret green and white.

La pointe Vacchiaia porte une pyramide à son extrémité. 

Un phare de 5 m de haut s'élève à 0,5 mile à l'E de cette pyramide.

La nuit en descendant vers St. Florent, restez dans le secteur blanc du phare de la Punta Vicchiaia afin d'éviter l'écueil de Tignosu. Au fond on aperçoit le feu vert de Fornali montée sur une tourelle verte et blanche.
