Sailing along the crowded and suggestive beaches of Marina di Sorso, Platamona, and the industrial and commercial port of Porto Torres, which is an important seaport for the communications between Sardinia and Europe, you reach the east-side of the peninsula of Stintino.
Towards the end it climbs up the bristly cliff of Capo Falcone, offering a simply magnificent panorama; La Pelosa, with its tower and its unique enchanting green beach, lies under. Just behind it, we find the Isola Piana and the winding Asinara: once a penal colony, today a natural park. It offers matchless beautiful beaches and seabed, uncontaminated landscapes where the human presence can be shocking when the prison buildings appear in front of you…. and all these conflicts even more with the magnificent beaches of Cala Sabina, Cala D’Oliva and Cala Sgombro.
The west coast, reflecting in emerald waters, is high and mysterious. This island is a National Park, therefore has limited access. Stintino is a modern and lively center. It has a nice tourist port which hosts every year the lateen sail race, a “poor” competition which commemorates the competence, the skill and the history of the Mediterranean people.
