National Parks of Sardinia
Latest update: 17 February 2022
The three national parks of Sardinia provide a variety of landscapes and are all quite different from each other.
Asinara National Park is essentially the island of the same name which is famous for its extraordinary number of donkeys. Situated at the north west tip of Sardinia, Asinara is a protected area where the donkeys roam freely alongside goats and wild horses.
Situated inland, the Gennargentu National Park offers a different variety of wildlife where foxes and wildcats nervously look to the skies where vultures and golden eagles may be lurking.
Of a somewhat different complexion from the other two national parks in Sardinia, La Maddalena Archipelago is an island group in the Strait of Bonifacio which separates the island region from French-owned Corsica. Among the highlights in La Maddalena Archipelago National Park is the island of Spargi with its stunning Cala Corsara Beach.
