Tourist Information

The charming little town of Stintino overlooks the Gulf of Asinara on the northwest coast of Sardinia. It was founded in 1885, when the families of fishermen who lived on the island of Asinara were evicted to make room to a penal colony and had to found a new settlement in Capo Falcone.

The origin of the name derives from the Sardinian "s'isthintinu", i.e. the dire strait, the name given to the narrow fjord on which the village was built.
The two ports - Mannu and Minori - are equipped for nautical tourism.

Why visit Stintino
A few kilometers from town, near the sea, the ancient tonnara is found. This was the major source of income for the village up to the twentieth century. Today, restored, they can be visited by tourists. Every summer, the tuna festival is held at the port, while the Museum of Tuna boasts a collection of documents, objects, pictures and models describing the tuna life cycle and illustrating the various stages of fishing methods.

North of the village, the road goes along the coast up to Capo Falcone, with its tower at the highest point and two Spanish fortifications: Pelosa and Isola Piana.

The coast around Stintino is fringed by white beaches that make this area one of the most renowned holiday resorts of Sardinia. From Porto Nuovo you can reach the unspoiled nature reserve of the Asinara National Park.
