Sailing Holidays in Torre Faro

Torre Faro lies close W of Punta Sottile and 750 m SW of Punta Peloro at the NW entrance to Stretto di Messina. The signal station at Forte Spuria, 1. 25 miles WNW of the village is not plainly visible from the E. Close offshore are eddies, and the whirlpool Charybdis. Temporary anchorage can be obtained by small vessels abreast the church in Torre Faro, about 130 m offshore, in depth of 29 m; local knowledge is required.
