Known by the people who love nature for its caves, the Dino Island was purchased in 1962 by Gianni Agnelli for fifty million pounds. However in June 2014 the Court of Paola sentenced the invsalidity of the purchase and the island came back under the ownership of the Italian State. This beautiful island offers spectacular cliffs of 80 meters. On the coast the erosion of limestone has created numerous cavities that host amazing ecosystems. Its biodiversity is absolutely amazing, for example, in addition to the classic Maquis shrubland, visitors can also find the unusual dwarf palm. Its wildlife includes many species of migratory birds, including peregrine falcons. In recent years the island is also a point of reference for scuba divers.
