STAGE N° 2 – The natural swimming pools, Budelli island

Before arriving at the destination of our second stage, Budelli Island, you will have the opportunity to admire the tall white limestone cliffs of nearby Corsica that bring out the colours of the landscape.

Once on Budelli, you will be enchanted by the extraordinary beauty of the Spiaggia Rosa and the Spiaggia dei Cavalieri, where Budelli’s natural pools are located.

Here you can immerse yourself in a real natural paradise, where the sky-blue hues of the ocean appear to reflect the sky. After a break of an hour and a half we get back on board to cross the Laguna, the Passo degli Asinelli, the Island of Razzoli and the Passo del Topo.

STAGE N° 1 – Cala Corsara, Isola di Spargi
STAGE N° 3 – The island of Santa Maria

STAGE N° 3 – The island of Santa Maria

The next stage around the island of Santa Maria is dedicated to diving and snorkelling enthusiasts. This location is among the most popular for visitors to Sardinia because of its crystal- clear sea and the richness and particular nature of its flora and fauna.

You cannot imagine the thrill of swimming among shoals of saddled bream and sargo!
On the way back, after skirting the islands of Barrettini and the North East side of the island of La Maddalena with its small fishermen’s church overlooking the sea, we get to the final part of the most celebrated and frequented destination in the Archipelago.

STAGE N° 2 – The natural swimming pools, Budelli island
STAGE N° 4 – The historic center of La Maddalena

STAGE N° 4 – The historic center of La Maddalena

What could be better than ending a fantastic day on the beach with a walk around the historic centre of the only town in the whole archipelago?

La Maddalena is well known for its picturesque alleys and stairways that do not seem to have suffered during the passage of time while the centre of the town is also full of craft shops and boutiques for shopping, an excellent opportunity for those who want to take back memories of the trip, buy local products or enjoy a delicious homemade ice cream.

The return journey includes sailing to the port of Palau, passing in front of the island of Santo Stefano, part of the island of Caprera and arriving at the famous Roccia d’Orso.
Between one stage and the other during the trip, the commander will tell you about the history of the Archipelago and some of the most curious anecdotes.
Estimated time of arrival is between 18:00 and 18:30.

Please Note: The captain may change the route due to weather conditions, or according to changes imposed by the Marine Park Management.
Before booking, it is a good idea to contact the staff or the commander to get information about the weather conditions.

Su consiglio dell’agenzia che ci ha affittato l’appartamento abbiamo prenotato l’escursione alle isole della Maddalena e grazie a loro abbiamo passato, io e la mia ragazza, una giornata bellissima! Nulla da dire sui paesaggi che si visitano, spargi, budelli, e maddalena. Spaghettata davvero buonissima!!!

Un plauso va fatto ai marinai, sempre sorridenti, disponibili e spiritosi e al capitano della motonave che per tutto il viaggio fornisce spiegazioni dettagliate su cosa si sta vedendo al momento e sulle manovre di bordo, rendendo tutti partecipi.

Veramente spettacolare, il posto, la compagnia, il cibo, l’organizzazione, la gentilezza e la disponibilità dei ragazzi, la bravura e la simpatia del Capitano, rendono questa escursione qualcosa di imparagonabile ed indimenticabile. Quando si va nel nord della Sardegna è una tappa che non può mancare.
