Any visit to this beautiful, untouched corner of Sardinia requires the jeep tour to do the area justice. No point pootling around on the model railway. Get in the jeep and see the sights. It's a bumpy, shoogly, occasionally uncomfortable but endlessly rewarding way of engaging first hand with the idyllic island of Asinara. The day we went the crossing... More

We took a full day tour in April - spring time and it was very pretty.The euphorbia bushes were magnificent. We saw the white donkeys and the goats, the old buildings are very atmospheric. A wonderful visit to the centre for studying bird migration topped off a great day with Anna Lisa from AsimarAvventura We were offered an English version... More

I took a bus tour to Asinara from Alghero and after sailing across to the island, the next part of the adventure was a small electric train travelling all over the island. It was wonderful to see but I wished I had some idea what was going on. I know us English speakers are used to the world at hour... More

We arrived here not really knowing what to expect but was hoping to get a glimpse of the albino donkeys. We decided to take a tour on the buggy which was quite pricey 25 euros per person but it did take a couple of hours and the guide was fantastic, we even got to see the albino donkeys so was... More

The trip by is actually the best part. The island itself is nice, but nothing that you cannot find anywhere else in Sardinia. The semi wild horses and white donkeys make a nice supplement to the visit.

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!
