La Maddalena
La Maddalena Sea SardiniaThe archipelago of La Maddalena, lies not far off the extreme northeastern coast of Sardinia. It is made up of four main islands, La Maddalena, Santo Stefano, Caprera and Spargi, situated near the Gallura’s coastline and another three to the north, Budelli, Razzoli and Santa Maria, in the southern part of the straits of Bonifacio, surrounded by many rocks and numerous islets. All of granite, these islands are enchanting thanks to the rocks, the beaches and the sea.
 
La Maddalena Sea SardiniaLa Maddalena is the biggest island of the Archipelago (19.061 s. km.). It is the only one of the seven islands to host a stable population. The higher hill, Guardia Vecchia, is not over 156 metres of height. The land, an undulating plateau with granite outcrops, does not afford cultivation and is mainly covered with low Mediterranean bushes.
 
La Maddalena Sea SardiniaSince 1996, it has been a National Park to safeguard the rare flora and fauna that still populate the islands. The flora is the typical Mediterranean one and is composed by 750 kinds of plants, like strawberry, “lentischio” (mastic tree), myrtle and rosemary but also pinewood, holm oaks and juniper bushes. In the park numerous rare specimen of lifebird nest, like the storm’s bird, the cormorant and the Corsican gull. Particularly rich is the underwater life that can boast of the presence of the red encrusting seaweed, Lithophyllum lechenoides (very rare and protected), and of the huge Patella ferruginea.
 
Razzoli Island La Maddalena SardiniaCaprera is the second biggest island of the Archipelago. It is found to the east of La Maddalena. From the summit of Monte Telaione, reachable by a granite stairway, you can admire an extraordinary panorama of the whole island, as far as the northeastern coast of Sardinia and Santa Teresa di Gallura. Still unpopulated, frequented by only a few migrant shepherds from the 18th century, it was bought by Giuseppe Garibaldi in 1856, who lived there for long intervals, and died there in 1882. The house and the other buildings of Garibaldi’s, are nowadays used as a museum, called “Compendio Garibaldino”. Freed from an almost complete military occupation, it was declared, in 1982, a nature reserve. At Caprera, there is the tourist village of Club Mediterranée and a Sailing Centre of the Touring Club Italiano.
 
Spargi Island La Maddalena SardiniaBetween Palau and La Maddalena is found Santo Stefano, from where Napoleon shelled La Maddalena island in 1793. A few kilometres after, you find Spargi, with a circular form, surrounded eastward by a thin white sandy beach, that someone named “Boomerang”. It’s the most rich in water and vegetation. Northwards, there are the islands of Budelli, (well known for the Spiaggia Rosa (pink beach) wonderful scenery of an Antonioni’s film, nowadays forbidden to visitors), Razzoli, accessible only from the west part, and Santa Maria with flat and fertile ground.
