La Maddalena Archipelago National Park is a geomarine protected area consisting of a group of islands situated in the north-east of the coast of Gallura, in the stretch of sea between Sardinia and Corsica known as Bocche di Bonifacio. These islands – except for La Maddalena Island housing the homonymous town and characterized by a significant human presence – are entirely deserted or scattered with small human settlements, like in Caprera and Santa Maria Islands.

Wow..what can I say. This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. This rocky island has spectacular, untouched landscapes, crystal clear water beaches and is part of a sea and land nature reserve. You can get here by crossing a bridge from the island of 'La Maddalena'. I went by scooter so I got to explore... More

These islands are absolutely beautiful. The turquoise colour of the water is different around the islands as one goes around, and is indescribable. The sands are lovely, sad that nowadays one can't land on the "pink sand" beach as we did 30+ years ago, as so many people were taking bottled sand home. But the boats take you to see... More

It is beautiful! We visited on a boat trip. The only issue is all the boats are there so 600 plus people and on these beautiful beaches so the experience of the natural beauty is so what destroyed! Not much you can do about it in August, unless you charter a private boat!! Outside of the peak time I guess... More

The beaches are beautiful and the color of the sea is spectacular. You can stay on La Maddalena island or take a boat trip that takes you to the different islands. The other islands are protected so you can't go by yourself.

The whole area of the Parce nazionale dell'Archipelago de La Maddalena is so unique that it is worth every minute when visiting all the different islands, Spargi, Caprera, Budelli, Santa Maria and many more tiny little spots in the Mediterranean gives this place a 'wow' experience!

If you can, leave your SUV at home, these roads are not suitable and there is very little space to park anywhere. I'd advise hitting the beach early if you want a good place, and giving BAIA TRINITÀ a complete body swerve after 4pm when it gets so busy that the beach fills up with towels and bodies in a...

I stayed on this island and there was plenty to keep me occupied for 7 days. The beaches are lovely. I went around the island on the local buses for 1 euro per ride (1.50 if you buy the ticket on the bus) but I'm sure there are lots of little coves to discover if you had a car. There... More

You only need to look on Google image search to see how stunning this place is. Even in July we were able to find a beach of our own! The water is crystal clear and beautifully calm. The island is full of pine forests, making it perfectly shaded, and there are regular buses to the main town.

Me and my friend went by 125cc mini Hondas around Corsica and then to Sardinia. The best place by far is La maddalena and we enjoyed the north part the best. The ultimate way to see the island is to rent a rib with 40hp and then find your own lagoon to spend the day with snorkelling and diving in... More
