Riviera di Gallura

Seven islands, a unique jewel

The Archipelago is located between Sardinia and Corsica at the eastern entrance to the Straits of Bonifacio and without counting the numerous rocks and islets, it comprises 7 main islands divided into two groups: those to the Northeast of La Maddalena (which give the Archipelago its name), Caprera and Santo Stefano and Spargi, Budelli, Razzoli and Santa Maria to the North West.

At one time these were called the “Intermediate islands” and have been inhabited since the eighteenth century.
The island of La Maddalena has an area of about 20 square kilometers and about 45 kms of jagged coastline dotted with picturesque coves and beautiful bays. The town of La Maddalena makes it also the only permanently inhabited island in the archipelago.
Inland it is dominated by a series of hills, the highest of which is the Vecchia Guardia that reaches 146 m above sea level.
From its summit you can admire a romantic panoramic view and the vast expanses of beautiful and striking yellow-pink rocks.

A scenic road encompasses the entire island and allows visitors to discover places of extraordinary beauty, some of which retain a wild and unspoilt character and which have become a major tourist attraction.

These include the Cala Spalmatore, located in an area rich in granite rocks and dense vegetation; Porto Massimo, located in the north of the island where in recent years a marina was built and around which a highly attractive holiday resort has been developed; Punta Marginetto and Punta Cannone, located at the northern end of the island, either side of the Abbatoggia inlet, an environment of alternating short stretches of sand and wild-looking cliffs and Giardinelli, located on the eastern side of the island with views of Caprera and rich in spectacular granite formations.

The wonderful Archipelago

The archipelago has a total area of almost 50 square kilometre La Maddalena is the largest island and has a population of 13,000 inhabitants.

The island’s soil is poorly suited to crops and is mostly covered by Mediterranean scrub or maquis. The coastline is rocky and characterized by granite formations that the wind and sea have reshaped over the centuries.
The lush Mediterranean vegetation, beaches, bays and granite rocks constitute an area of rare beauty and great historical and natural interest.
Proof of this was the establishment in 1994 of a National Park for the protection of all the resources in the area, recognized by EU as a site of special interest and considered one of the most breathtaking environments in the world in terms of morphologies, plant landscapes and biotic sea. To know more about the other islands of the Archipelago, click the following link!
