National Park Nature / Park
Try to spot the famous white donkeys at Parco Nazionale Asinara, a national park that comprises the island of Asinara and its coastal waters. Often called Devil's Island, this has served as a quarantine area, World War II prison camp, and one of the most important high-security prisons in Italy during the 1970s. Learn more about these periods at the Fornelli visitor center, and see the former prison. You can wander the island's rocky cliffs, wide bays, and beaches. Stroll through the small fishing village of Cala d'Oliva, and stop for lunch. Book your visit here through an agency, because only licensed boats may sail around the coast. Many of these also offer guided tours. Make Parco Nazionale Asinara a centerpiece of your Porto Torres vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Porto Torres itinerary builder.
