La Pelosa beach is one of the most beautiful beaches of Sardinia, reknowned all over the world for the beauty of the sea. Its wonderful colors , the transparencies of the water and the very fine white sand makes it looking like a tropical beach rather than a mediterranean one.
Located in the Asinara gulf to the North-East of Capo Falcone, La Pelosa beach is protected from the open sea by a natural barrier made by the stacks of Capo Falcone, by the Piana island and by the Asinara island. Thank to this position, it has an almost always flat sea.
Capo Falcone, a promontory on the North-West of Sardinia, takes its name from an old tower on the hill, called Falcone Tower, that used to be a defensive bulwark during Spanish domination. The rock is granitic; for its particular aspect is famous as “Stintino Stone” and a lot of cottages are finished with it.All around is the Mediterranean scrub.
The promontory separates the “outside sea” where rocks and deep blue sea can be found, from the “inside sea” of La Pelosa beach with its turquoise waters.
The Pelosa Tower is the most famous tower in the region, and in the last 20 years has become almost an icon, the symbol itself of the Pelosa Beach; it is located on a very small isle in front of the beach that from this tower took its name. Built in 1578, the tower is a cylindrical single-storey stone building, with a mushroom-shaped vault; it is 6 mt. high with the entrance at the height of 3 meters. It’s very easy to reach by sea for a visit.
The beach of Cala Lupo is made up of rocks and coarse sand, lapped by extraordinarily clear, that assembles beautiful shade of emerald green and blue. Draw a very impressive show, not only for the lush vegetation surrounding it, but also for the rugged rocks that are reflected in the sea. Despite being beautiful, is not much frequented by bathers: it is ideal for sunbathing or swim in absolute peace and quiet.

The beach of Le Saline is a large cove that overlooks the salt marshes near the structures used since the thirteenth century by the monks of Santa Maria di Tergu.

Also found in these buildings close to the trap of Saline, dating from the seventeenth century and abandoned in the late 60s of the twentieth century.
