Home to rare species such as Audouin's gull, the peregrine falcon and a small colony of little egrets (Egretta garzetta), the Mortorio island, to the south-east of the Maddalena Archipelago, less than two miles from the coast between Porto Rotondo and Porto Cervo, facing Cala di Volpe, belongs to the 'Maddalena National Park' to protect its fragile environment.

The island, composed of granite rock and uninhabited, has a hilly terrain, reaching 77 m asl.
Its interior is clothed in low vegetation, mainly Mediterranean shrubs and broom, while the coast has several beautiful sandy coves and inlets among the sea-carved rocks.

Since the whole Mortorio island and its coastal waters are under the highest protection level, all sailing and landing are prohibited, and the whole area is closely monitored by the Forestry and Environmental protection corps.
