Renting a scooter is a great way to discover the island`s natural inland and coastal beauty and as this island has never been a destination for the mass tourism market the roads are almost always empty and safe to drive on.
The roads are tranquil here; some days, you`ll pass nothing more than the traditional three-wheeled pickups (called an APE) that locals use for transporting both themselves and local produce around the island.
Because of this, they are safe, and you can leisurely cruise along the quiet coastal roads while enjoying uninterrupted views of the turquoise sea, which at times is no more than 100 yards away.
Along the eastern and southern coasts, there are eight stunning beaches, with golden sand and crystal-clear water, beautiful coves and inlets, all of which a reachable by scooter.
Or take a trip to the Capo Sandalo Lighthouse on the westernmost point of San Pietro. This is a gem of a road; it twists and turns its way up and over the island through the beautiful countryside and rewards you with breathtaking views from the cliff tops out across the glimmering sea, a trip well worth taking.
