The charming little village of Stintino Stintino overlooks the Gulf of Asinara, on the north-eastern coast of Sardinia. It came into existence precisely in 1885, when the families of the fishermen who lived on the Island of Asinara were evicted to make way for the penal colony and were obliged to found a new settlement on Capo Falcone. The origins of the toponym derive from the Sardinian "s'isthintinu", that is, “intestine”, from the name given to the narrow fiord where the village lies. The two ports -Portu Mannu and Portu Minori – are equipped for nautical tourism. Stintino is an amazing stop during a sailing vacation in the north west coast of Sardinia. Near the sea at just a few kilometres from the inhabited centre, we find the old tunny factories, which were one of the principal economic sources of the village until the XX century. Today they have been restructured and are used for tourism and recreational activities. Every Summer, the “Tuna Festival” is held in the port, while the “Tunny Factory Museum” displays a collection of documents, objects and models that narrate the life cycle of the tuna fish and illustrate the various phases of the tunny killing. To the north the road continues northwards along the coast as far as Capo Falcone, with the tower at the highest point and the two Spanish fortifications of “Pelosa” and the “Isola Piana”. The whole coast of Stintino is edged by spotless beaches, which make this village one of the most famed tourist resorts in the whole of Sardinia. Opposite the islands of Piana and Asinara, near Stintino, the paradise beach of La Pelosa dominates the landscape with the whiteness of its beach and the transparency of its waters. At the foot of Capo Falcone stretch the beaches of fine white sand and waters with chromatic hues from turquoise to blue. To the north they are enclosed by the tower of

StintinoLa Pelosa, an imposing seventeenth-century construction that towers over the seashore. There is also an old Saracen tower in the area, known as “of the Falcon”, constructed in granite rock, and reached on foot or by off-road vehicle. It is a small natural oasis, a breathtaking paradise, the landscape with the appearance of the kingdom of all nature, among the beach and the islands afore, a rich world above and below the sea, pleasant and refreshing, in which to spend relaxing times in the midst of the scents of the Mediterranean brush. The seawaters are rich in fish, making the swims with mask and snorkel a curious and interesting discovery among the beautiful colours of the seabed. From the Porto Nuovo, it is possible to reach the unspoilt natural oasis of the National Park of Asinara. Capo Falcone is a wild and unspoilt paradise: the rugged promontory, where the peregrine falcon nests and gives it its name, stretches out in a sea of extraordinarily bright colours. It has camper van access right to the terrace of the Falcon Tower, dating to 1537, set at an altitude of 200 metres and allowing a breath-taking view comprising the headland, the Piana Island, Asinara and the coast of Castelsardo at Capo Caccia. The headland also provides an extraordinary spectacle in the contrast between its two sides: on the west coast we find imposing cliffs that drop down sheer onto the so-called “mare di fuori" (outer sea), which is dark blue and beaten by the winds; while the east coast is lapped by a calm light-coloured sea, called “mare di dentro" (inner sea), with enchanting beaches. The beach of La Pelosetta is bordered to the north by Capo Falcone. It generally has rocks and very little sand. Its beauty derives from its spectacular position facing the little Island of Pelosa, while on the right we find the Piana Island and Asinara. The chance to get to the isle through a natural pass surrounded by a marvellously limpid sea, is also interesting.
