Asinara island is beautiful by itself, but you really enjoy it when you take a guided tour since guides are extremely prepared on the history of the place, and very open to questions and to discussion about that particular place and about Sardinia in general... at least, this was our experience with the off-road tour organzied by Asinara 4x4!

We went on the Jeep excursion. Good fun, a mixture of on road and off road. The guide Ricardo was excellent, he knew everything there was to know about the history, flora and fauna of the Island. The trip included the boat across and a tour around the main places of Asinara and also a stop at one of the... More

Access to the island is strictly restricted, excursions are permitted only with official guides, accommodation is limited to a minor and spartan hostel and some of its inviting beaches remain barred to the public to protect its landscape, flora and fauna special atractions there: white donkey's, white (hidden) sand beaches and ruined jail building's from past times...

We didnt see much, because we took the shortest excursion possible - but I can say: you will fall in love with the colour if the sea, going from white sand to tuquise and then darker blue...Small islands with nit a lot of buildings, wild horses on Asinara...definitely worth a visit!

We were motored out to this magnificent island by our effusive guide, Zack, on his boat, "La Pinta," stopping en route for a swim in the clear waters off Stintino. (We did not see wpales or dolphins, but it was exciting to know that this was a possibility!) We were moved to make this trip because my son, Cameron, wanted... More

Asinara island is reached easily from either Porto Torres or Stintino. A 15 minutes boat trip takes you to a deserted place, with only buildings which are the left overs of several prisons, one high security bunker, quarantine hospitals for those who had leprosy, and a fishermen village. We did the tour of the island part via 4 wheel drive... More

Very beautiful, lots of varied plant and animal life, and an interesting history. Tour prices varied. Our guide was friendly, but the commentary was in Italian only and therefore not very useful to us. We advise that you check the tour languages when booking.

I can see the GOLFO DELL'ASINARA directly from my house. Platamona beach is 19 km sandy beach, we love it.

Visiting a secluded uninhabited island is certainly an experience that doesn't come about often and is usually memorable. Asinara island and national park is just one of those. The boat departs from Stintino's new marina and it leaves exactly on time, so don't be late or you'll miss it. The visit to the park is an all-day trip where you... More
