Scogli delle Scole is a group of islets and shoals on the East of Giglio island. It is believed that ill-fated cruise ship Costa Concordia hit the rocks here on its port side, creating a huge gash below the waterline that caused it to sink just north of Giglio Porto.
It is not clear why captain Francesco Schettino came this close to the coast. He alleged that the rock they hit was not on the charts, but these shoals are well known, documented and charted.
