Full description

Explore the beauty of North Sardinia on a full-day boat cruise of the La Maddalena archipelago. Sailing onboard the Lady Luna 2, visit the most beautiful islands of a magnificent natural park, stop to swim on sandy beaches, and more. Depart from the harbor in Palau for the short, 35-minute sail to Budelli. Marvel at the pink sand of Spiaggia Rosa, the dramatic rock formation of Roccia del Coccodrillo, and splash in the sea from Piscine Naturali.

Continue to Santa Maria island and feel the warmth of the Mediterranean Sea. Make a long stop at the beach there to sunbathe and relax. After the stop, take a break for lunch, and if you wish, you can buy typical Sardinian dishes on board or bring your own food.

Arrive next at Spargi island, where the beaches of Cala Corsara or Cala Granara are lapped by emerald waters and protected from the wind to create perfect conditions for sunbathing. End the tour with a stop at La Maddalena island and visit the town of La Maddalena. Wander the colorful streets to find souvenir shops or gaze at the boats in the Cala Gavetta marina.

En route back to Palau, sail past Santo Stefano and Caprera islands for the last look at the high life of the seas.

It was a beautiful day at sea and on what are probably the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean! The food is something you should think about, especially with children or if you don't like seafood, it's better to take something with you! However, drinks are well taken care of on board!

A really well organized guided tour. The guy was very knowledgeable in all languages and the staff really kind and nice. I would have reduced the visit to the historic center of La Maddalena by a few minutes to spend more time on the wonderful beaches of the Island of Santa Maria and Spargi.

Boat tour itself was ok. The national park fee came as a bit of a surprise, since it is only stated in a somewhat hidden way. Should just be included in the price. It was also a bit annoying that according to the ticket you should be there by 9.30 a.m., but it only started after 10.30 a.m. Is also there, but annoying.
