The frazione of Porto Pino has a spotless beach that stretches for almost 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) with dunes that can reach as high as 29 metres (95 ft). As its name suggests, the importance of this area from a naturalistic point of view comes from the presence of the Aleppo pine, which is present in a dense wood of about 90 hectares (220 acres). As well as the pines, squat and Phoenician juniper can be found all around. There are also rare kermes oaks, which, in their bushy state, are found only in very few places on the island.
Ai confini tra Sardegna e Jazz is an international music festival. It is held in the first week of August/first week of September.
