From Alghero to Capo Falcone

Sailing along the coast to the north, 23 miles from Capo Caccia, you will reach the tip of Capo Falcone. The coast is characterized by high cliffs overlooking the sea.

During the navigation you can admire Isola della Foradada and the Isola Piana. You will then find the beach of Torre del Porticciolo and the large beach of Porto Ferro. The beaches are bordered by two towers: In the north Torre Negra, and to the south Torre Rossa. In this point the seabed is sandy and allows for good anchorage.Past Porto Ferro, you will find Argentiera, Capo Mannu and Isola dei Porri.

When you reach Capo Falcone, passing between Isola Piana and Asinara, through the passage of Fornelli, you can enter the Golfo dell'Asinara. This route allows you to avoid the circumnavigation of the Asinara to the north, reducing your trip by 20 miles. This crossing must be done carefully as depths are very low.

It is advisable to travel during the day, only when there are good weather conditions and using vessels with minimal draft. You will need to follow the alignments of the pairs of seamarks. Seamarks are pillars with black and white stripes, positioned on the south coast of the island.

An additional passage is between the Isola Piana and the rock-cliffs of the Torre della Pelosa, though this is only recommended for vessels with minimum draft.
