LA MADDALENA ARCHIPELAGO BY BOAT
La Maddalena Archipelago
In the northeastern Part of Sardinia and Gallura coast, within the Bonifacio Strait, consists of many islands, rocks and islets modeled by strong northwesterly winds and by water currents.
The coves and the inlets of the islands create natural landings and mix up with the crystal colors of the sea, that made several sites of the Archipelago famous all over the world. Among them La Spiaggia Rosa on the Island of Budelli is worthy of mention: nowadays, thanks to the heavy recent conservative constrictions, the access to the sandy shore and to the waterfront rum is making it one of the most precious and beautiful sites of the whole National park.
The territory of Parco Nazionale dell'Arcipelago will also represent an important part of the Italian State and Sardina territory in the Bocche di Bonifacio International Marine Park which will soon be established.
The La Maddalena Archipelago National Park is a protected geo marine area composed of an harmonious whole of islands; apart from the town of La Maddalena, which is in the main homonymous populated island, the rest of the Archipelago is quite uninhabited witha few human settlements on the islands of Caprera, Santa Maria and Santa Stefano.
The Archipelago of La Maddalena is part of “Sites of Community Importance" and part of “Special protection Areas” (aka SPS): respectively identiﬁed by the European directives that are intended for preservation of the biological diversity.
The Archipelago is a place where unique habitats meet together and where beauty takes nature center stage: the landscape is dominated by granitic components, where emerging blocks and gorgeous ﬁne sandy beaches located in small creeks among marine transparencies make it look like an exotic destination.
This is a territory that is widely visited during the summer months but whose wilderness continues to be vigorously preserved. Our daily boat trip will guide you to discover this wonderful place called La Maddalena Archipelago!
