Le cap Falcone, pointe extrême située au NW de la Sardaigne, est prolongé par une petite péninsule dont le sommet s'élève à 190 m et est surmonté par la tour Falcone qui est remarquable.

La tour aragonaise de la Pelosa, a donné le nom à la plage qui se trouve en face.

La petite île est joignable à pied depuis la plage en suivant un gué naturel.
L'île est aujourd'hui propriété privée.
