Full description

Discover the very best that the La Maddalena Archipelago has to offer on this guided tour. Visit Love Bay, the beautiful Manto della Madonna with its incredibly blue waters, see the famous Pink Beach, and explore the charms of La Maddalena town.

On the way to the first destination, pass the famous natural monument Bear Rock and the beautiful tourist village, Porto Rafael.

Arrive at the first stop, Cala dell’amor, known as Love Bay, on the eastern coast of Spargi island. The Virginia motor yacht is the only tourist boat authorized to stop in the small but wonderful bay. Jump into the shallow water and swim for a short distance to reach its beach.

From there, head to Porto della Madonna, also known as Manto della Madonna, with its almost surreal shades of blue, crystal-clear water. Learn more about this extraordinary lagoon, known as the natural swimming pool of the La Maddalena Archipelago, by booking the extra, mini-tour service.

Before or after the next stop, visit the Pink beach on Budelli island. Get as close as possible and take some pictures of this mesmerizing natural phenomenon, inaccessible since 1994.

The final stop is La Maddalena town on Maddalena – the only inhabited island of the 60 in the Archipelago. Shop or visit the historic center of the town, or even book a city bus sightseeing tour.

Finally, make your way back to the departure port for the return trip to Cannigione.

Just an all-around amazig experience! The places we stopped to swim/snorkel were crystal clear. We have been to a lot of beaches all over the world but never one with water so spectacular. The whole journey was beautiful and laid back. On top of that, the crew was very friendly and attentive to the passengers. They even went above and beyond the call of duty for us. We left our bag on La Maddalena. On our way back to Cannigione, crew members called the restaurant where we left the bag and arranged to collect it for us later that evening. Then they organized to deliver it to us the next morning when the boat docked at our port again. They were amazing (special thanks to Eleonora and the other crew member--who I didn't get her name)!

In general, I recommend the archipelago worth seeing only not enough time is for the city of La Maddalena itself.
