TOURIST INFOSTINTINO  
Birth of the town
Stintino is an independent town (1,127 inhabitants) in the province of Sassari, and is famous, above all, for the Pelosa beach – one of the most beautiful beaches in the whole of Sardinia, and a true jewel of the Mediterranean. It consists of a long strip of bright white sand, and an incredibly clear shallow sea that demonstrates a range of colours varying from turquoise to deep blue and intense sapphire.
This tropically beautiful beach awakens a sense of adventure in its visitors, whilst the island facing the beach, just a short swim away, is dominated by the Pelosa Guard Tower built by the Spanish in the XVI century.

Isthintinu, as it is called by the inhabitants of Sassari who voted it their favourite seaside spot, was founded in the second half of the XIX century by settlements of fishermen from the nearby island of Asinara. The centre has grown up around the sea, following the ins and outs of the coast and bays.

The original harbour, known as minori, which provides a good opportunity to take pleasant walks and make interesting purchases of Sardinian craftsmanship, has recently been added to by a new, larger harbour – mannu.
Other beaches complete the picture of an enchanting town that attracts thousands of tourists each year. We would mention the beaches of Ezzi Mannu, le Saline, and Pazzona. The Stagno Casaraccio is another example of a natural rarity of the area, and is well worth visiting as here you can often see examples of rare birds, such as the black winged stilts, the blue heron, and, more rarely, the elegant pink flamingos.

The coastal road for Capo Flacone, heading towards the north western most tip of the island, is also worth a drive, as it offers an enchanting view over the gulf of Asinara, accompanied by the heady scents of the Mediterranean plant life.

Fishing and tradition
Over the years, the local community has built up an exclusive relationship with the sea, and all its most important initiatives are linked to this very special union: the tuna festival during the month of June, takes us back to traditional fishing techniques, which are also illustrated by the town museum of Tonnara - another absolute must.

We would also mention the lateen sail races that bring many enthusiasts to the gulf for the last weekend of August. Other important festivals include the festival of the Beata Vergine della Difesa, in September, and that of San Nicola.

We should also add that the area is not only a beautiful paradise, but also an extremely popular tourist destination, particularly during the summer months, offering fun and entertainment for all ages.
