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.

The crystal clear blue waters, interesting rock formations, few tourists in October, combined with warm waters....a perfect paradise! Buildings are few, allowing the land and sea to engulf you with their simple beauty. I will most certainly return!

La Maddalena is the largest town in the Maddalena archipelago, just 2 kilometres from the northeastern shore of Sardinia and sitting in the Straits of Bonifacio, between it and Corsica. La Maddalena now derives much of its income from tourism. The only method of traveling to La Maddalena is by boat, with car ferries traveling from nearby Palau. The island... More

The ferry trip is quite expensive but makes for a nice day trip. We walked to panorama beach which was an u eventful walk . Once there the rocks were fun for our seven year old to explore. It is a very windy point so not too enjoyable to sunbathe.

We were there early in August 2016, a party of six, three adults, one child and two eighteen year olds. It was well worth the trip from Olbia, you do feel like you have escaped when you get onto the island and the journey is easy from the airport via bus straight to Palau and very regular short hop ferries...

I think the reviews here says it all. The beaches are amazing. You can see quite a bit on the two main islands, however, I would recommend doing one of the boat tours to really get to see the other small islands which have amazing beaches.

If you have rented a car it is easy and probably worth doing a trip out to La Maddalena by ferry from Palau. Follow signs for "Porto" nd just keep goimg until tje end of the road to get straight to the ferry terminal to buy tickets (approx €20?) It takes 15 minutes to get across from the mainland. Once...
