The main tourist attraction is the beach of “La Pelosa” that overlooks the Asinara Gulf: the beauty of this beach comes from the fine white sand and the turquoise-blue sea. Another beautiful beach is “La Pelosetta” from which you can access a small island that hosts the Pelosa Tower built by the Aragonese in 1578 to defend the coast.In front of these beaches there is the Asinara former a penal colony and now a nature reserve.
The village of Stintino was founded in 1885 by Genoese and Sardinian farmers and fishermens who were evicted from Asinara when it was decided to transform it into a penal colony. The country is characterized by two harbors a small (Minori) and one large (Mannu).
