Le cap Fornali, par une vieille tour, est situé à 1NM à l'W du golfe de St Florent.
Un phare, haut de 9 m, se trouve sur le cap. 

On peut mouiller, à des profondeurs de 11 à 12 m, abrité des vents, sauf ceux venant du N, dans une rade située à 0,3 MN au SE du cap Fornali.
Les marins avec une connaissance locale, peuvent ancrer par 6 m sur fond de sable et d'algue, à l'extrémité S de la balise lumineuse indiquant l'écueil de Tegnosa.
