The 7 islands of the archipelago La Maddalena
La Maddalena island is the largest of over 50 islands that make up the Archipelago. Find tourist information about La Maddalena island here.
The island of Caprera is famous because Giuseppe Garibaldi spent the last years of his life here. Among the island’s beaches are Cala Coticcio and the Relitto (Shipwreck) beach.
Santo Stefano is one of the main islands of the Maddalena Archipelago by extension. Known for the VIllamarina granite quarry and for the honey-combed rock erosion in which man has found shelter since the Neolithic age.
Spargi (and Spargiotto) with fortifications overlooking the sea and its famous Cala Corsara, Cala Granara and Cala Connari. Exhilarating white sandy beaches!
The Budelli island where the famous Rosa beach is located. The presence of bryozoan skeletons and pink foraminifera has made this the most famous and sought after beach. How to get to the Rosa beach? Entry is prohibited, although it can be seen from the boat while on the tour. It is possible to disembark on the island and follow the numerous paths of the La Maddalena Archipelago National Park. It is important to stay at a reasonable distance in order to preserve it.
Santa Maria owes its name to the Benedictine convent of Sancta Maria de Budello. The Laguna di Porto Madonna and the Passo degli Asinelli connect it to Razzoli.
Razzoli overlooks the Bocche di Bonifacio. Because of the wind, it is composed mainly of rocks and has little vegetation. The nineteenth-century lighthouse safe-guards passage through the Bocche. It is worth visiting.
