La pointe Caprara ou dell Scorno, extrémité N de l'île Asinara, porte un phare, maison à deux étages sur laquelle s'élève une haute tour ronde, le tout peint en blanc.
La pointe est débordée au N par des hauts-fonds.
A 0,5M environ au SSW du phare, à 120m de haut, on voit l'ancien sémaphore, édifice bas à corps cylindrique. La tour Arena est bien visible au SSE du phare sur une pointe à 0,8M.
