The Nature trail
(sentiero tattile)

An educational path accessible to all

The Nature trail – the first of its kind in Sardinia – was designed by the Asinara National Park in collaboration with the Sardinian Forest Authority. The path includes 13 informative stopping points with Braille texts and 8 interactive tactile stops which guide you to discover the uncontaminated environments of the island.

The first 350 metres are also accessible to wheelchair users, who will find a scenic seaside picnic area at the end. The trail then goes up – with a path off to the right leading to the Mediterranean garden – to the church and then the wash house.

The trail is provided with a rope handrail that guides the visitor all along the 830-metre circular path leading back to the starting point.

1 knot on the handrail = stopping point
3 knots on the handrail = interruption
The interruption is also indicated by a small wooden floor.

Along the trail, please do not pay attention to the rope joints, poles and carabiners that keep the guiding rope taut.
Although caution is advised, as some stretches may gently slope or be slightly uneven, the path is safe and accessible to all.
