Parco Nazionale Asinara, Porto Torres

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 part of your Porto Torres vacation plans using our Porto Torres trip itinerary builder tool .

  • I can say that it is as per title, I managed very well because many times give too many services also means ruin nature in terms of landscape and also of pollution, one of the few paradises where is truly respected their habitat. Super recommended.
