The Maddalena Archipelago

The La Maddalena Archipelago is a geomarine park that extends over an area – between land and sea – of about 20,000 hectares. Made up of over 60 islands and islets of granite and schisty nature, the Archipelago represents a strictly interdependent complex of sea and land and is one of the landscapes considered to be among the most evocative in the world.

The archipelago

With more than 180km of coastline and over 60 islands, the Maddalena Archipelago is one of the wonders of Sardinia and the whole world. Its inlets and coves, shaped over the years by the winds and the sea, are unique stages where nature is the undisputed protagonist, offering unique scenarios such as the Pink Beach of Budelli, made famous by the genius of Michelangelo Antonioni, who set us in 1964 parts of the famous film ‘Red Desert’.

Further south, on the other hand, the granite island of Spargi, almost completely uninhabited, an oasis where the wildest nature finds refuge and La Maddalena, the largest island with its historical and natural wealth. The sea in these islands is clear and inhabited by some of the rarest animal species in the Mediterranean Sea such as the bottlenose dolphin, where it can be seen in schools of more than 30 specimens. The Maddalena Archipelago is therefore a destination to see or rediscover if you have already been there, as it represents a place of excellence in which to spend your holidays.
