Cape Falcone, located NW extreme tip of Sardinia, is extended by a small peninsula whose summit rises to 190 m and is surmounted by the Falcone  tower that is conspicuous.

The Aragonese Tower of Pelosa, gave the name to the beach which is in front.

The small island is reachable on foot from the beach following a natural ford.
The island is now privately owned.

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.

Il promontorio di Capo Falcone è la punta estrema a NW della Sardegna. Il promontorio prende il nome da una torre saracena chiamata appunto Torre del Falcone, edificata nel 1578, antico baluardo difensivo che sovrasta il colle eche è notevole.

La torre aragonese della Pelosa , dà il nome alla spiaggia in fronto.

L'isolotto è raggiungibile a piedi dalla spiaggia seguendo un guado naturale.
L'isola è tutt'oggi proprietà privata.
