These photos have been taken in Stintino, a little town on the sea side in the North West extreme point of Sardinia, in the Sassari province.

There are several beaches in Stintino area, on both east and west sides of the "finger" that extends towards the islands Isola Piana and Asinara. Among them the Pelosa and the Pelosetta, the Saline, the Coscia di Donna and Punta d' Elice beaches.

All the images in this page were taken on the East side of the Sardinia "finger" tip looking to the nearby Isola Piana and Asinara islands.

Isola Piana, as the name tells, is a flat island and is placed in between Stintino and Asinara. You can see both islands in the Photos, with the nearest flat and lower Isola Piana and on the background the mountains of the bigger Asinara.

Separated from la Pelosa beach by a tiny channel but easy to reach, walking thorough the shallow waters, there is a beautiful Spanish tower built in the 16th Century, testimony of the long period when Sardinia was ruled by the Spanish Crown and defense needed against corsair and other attacks coming from North Africa, France, Genoa, Turkey.

Asinara island has an history on its own. Due to its position and insularity it was first chosen to be the "Lazzaretto" to place contagious patients and in more modern times to become the high security prison which used to hold the most dangerous mafiosi and terrorists of Italy. In 1998 the high security prison was abandoned and the un-spoiled by humans Asinara could become a National Park. There among other wild species is possible to admire the indigenous white donkeys. Access to the National Park may not be granted due to the limited number of visitors admitted.

To reach Stintino with a car is quite easy. Alghero Fertilia is the nearest airport with lots of national and international connections. Porto Torres is the nearest port with ferries connection from Sardinia to Italy mainland and some connections to France as well.

Once in Sardinia you can access many services to really enjoy the possibilities offered by Stintino, sailing, wind surfing, scuba diving.
