The museum traces the backdrop of the traps from the ancient times to the modern days. Sometimes it has social occasions that are held night at the shoreline. Nonetheless, it offers a superb view from the patio. The historical center is exceptionally imaginative and bilingual: the first in Northern Sardinia.

9. Torre Della Pelosa

Torre Della Pelosa is a beautiful old lighthouse on the small island, but it is actually quite impossible to go there because of the seabirds. But if you love swimming and snorkeling, it might be possible for you to reach this place. It is actually an abandoned place and co-exists with wildlife, so it is recommended for everyone to look out for sea urchins and jellyfish. It was abandoned four years ago yet Torre Della Pelosa still maintains its beauty.
