The Herring Gulls have chosen the high southern cliff of Gallinara Island, a Regional Nature Reserve, to nest undisturbed, forming one of the biggest colonies in the north Thyrrenian Sea. The most sheltered stretch of the coast offered in the past a mooring place to the Roman ships, of which important finds are preserved in the museum of Albenga. Among the luxuriant Mediterranean vegetation, it is possible to find paleo-Mediterranean floral species and rare reptiles. For the great biological and archaeological value of the seabed, in part still intact, in the future the area will be interested by the establishment of a Marine Reserve.
