The iset Capense (isula di Capezza in Corsican) is a small island (about 2 ha) bathed by the Mediterranean Sea and located on the village of Centuri in the Cap Corse, off the port.
The islet Capense was fortified in the same time of the harbor at the twelfth or thirteenth century. The chapel of Santa Maria Maddalena built on the islet in the Middle Ages is now in ruins. The islet was sold by the State in 1960 and was finally purchased by the Coastal Conservancy.
Attention at the northern islet, some shallow. Total ban on spearfishing and diving all forms of fishing.
