Access to the area and Park rules

How do you get to Punta Giglio?

Read this post to find out how to get to the entrance to the Park, inside which we are located. From the entrance to the museum/guesthouse/refreshment area there are approximately 3 km of simple and well-marked route. An electric shuttle is available to guests of the guesthouse, people with reduced mobility and visitors who request it by booking it in advance at +39 371 4202359

Is entry free or paid?

For some years, access to all the managed areas of the Porto Conte Park has been included in the single ticket of the Ecomuseum. Here are the details of the rates.

Remember that:

  • All the inhabitants of the Municipality of Alghero have free access to the Punta Giglio forest area
  • The single ticket is included in the guesthouse rates.
Do I have to book the electric shuttle?

Of course! Booking allows us to organize rides correctly. It should be known that electric vehicles have a limited autonomy and that we cannot make more trips than expected, otherwise we risk running out of batteries and not being able to use the shuttle when there may be an urgent need, such as in the case of an emergency.

We serve breakfast from 8.30 to 10.00. Anyone who needs it sooner will have to request early breakfast at reception.
