The North-Western Parks

This itinerary leads through two havens of natural beauty of inestimable value: the Porto Conte regional park and Asinara Island national park, created to safeguard the ecosystems of both the coastline and the hinterland of Sardinia’s north-western region. Once there, surrounded by uncontaminated nature, you will enjoy a succession of powerful emotions as you gaze over the crystalline water, the fields of green, vertical cliffs, enchanting and mysterious grottoes.

1. Porto Conte – Capo Caccia Regional Park

To the north of Alghero is a vast park made up of forests, ponds, natural monuments, archaeological sites and the Capo Caccia – Isola Piana protected marine reserve. Along the extensive coastline you will find high cliffs of calcareous rock perched over the water’s edge, home to grottoes with magnificent geological formations that have, over time, become nature’s own cathedrals. The Capo Caccia promontory is a treasure trove of natural gems, like Grotta Verde, covered in musk and lichens, and the Grotta di Nettuno (Neptune’s Cave), that can be reached by boat or over land along the Escala del Cabirol stairs.

2. Asinara National Park

You can reach Asinara Island from the port of Stintino or Porto Torres. The scenery here is utterly gorgeous and the tour can be done in a variety of ways: by sea on sailboats or fishing boats, on foot or on mountain bikes over hiking trails or in 4X4s with park rangers. The coastal and inner areas are also interesting for the numerous species of rare birds that nest there, some of them autochthonous, and for the famous white donkeys (asini, in Italian) that gave the island its name.
