Discover Archipelago di La Maddalena

La Maddalena is the pearl of Sardinia. Characterised by its rocky granite terrain and turquoise waters, the Arcipelago di La Maddalena National Park is a geo-marine area that has been a protected area since 1994. That being said, the archipelago has actually been protected for longer than that, as in many places the natural park took over untouched parts of the militaru zones. Off the north-eastern coast of Sardinia, the archipelago is made up of seven islands, but most of its activity is concentrated on La Maddalena, where you will find the only town. The other islands are completely uninhabited.

The best way to really discover the archipelago is to rent out a boat and venture from one cove to another. If your budget won't stretch to this, it's still possible to go on day boat excursions to some of the many beaches from the port of La Maddalena. Another option is to take the ferry in Palau (one leaves every 15 minutes) and go off to explore the islands of Maddalena and Caprera by car, scooter or even bicycle. A short visit to the very touristy La Maddalena should suffice before heading out to find the beautiful views over the archipelago from high points such as the Guardia Vecchia fort. Carprera Island is the more wild of the two and a true paradise for hikers. There are many marked trails that make it easy to reach the beautiful coves there, that are otherwise inaccessible by car. Don't miss out on discovering Punta Galera or Cala Coticcio. The island's pine forest is also particularly worth a visit, seeing as how La Maddalena has no trees whatsoever.
