The Marine Protected Area of Capo Carbonara stands out not only for its natural beauty but also for its active commitment to the conservation and promotion of marine and coastal biodiversity.

In the vicinity of the Island of Cavoli, visitors can follow the barracudas in their patrols, while in the Secca di Cala Caterina, it is possible to admire imposing granite landslides populated by groupers and large gilt-head breams.

However, the Marine Protected Area is not limited to nature conservation; it also strives to promote sustainable development of the territory, enhancing traditional activities and the local culture, closely linked to the marine world. In a constant balance between environmental protection and socio-economic growth.
