Full description
Start your trip at Palau or La Maddalena port, where the crew will meet you and make sure you get comfortable on board. Choose from a variety of drinks and food available for purchase as you enjoy the sea breeze. Take a swim during the first stop at Santa Maria island, known for its turquoise waters. Stop at Budelli to lie on the sand or swim in the natural pools of Spiaggia del Cavaliere, protected from currents and perfect for a relaxing swim. Once back to the boat, admire the Spiaggia Rosa and its unique pink sand. Visit Spargi to discover its white sandy beaches, rocky coasts, and turquoise waters. Go snorkeling in calm waters or lounge on the beach of Cala Granara. Along the way, see the Island of Santo Stefano, Caprera, and the Bear Rock of Palau from the boat. Listen to a multilingual explanation from your expert guide about the history of the archipelago. If you departed from Palau, have 1 hour of free time to shop for souvenirs or Vermentino wine in traditional Sardinian shops. Take a walk around the charming town. Admire the port of Cala Gavetta and the picturesque church of Santa Maria Maddalena before you get dropped off at Palau. If your journey started at La Maddalena, end your trip here.

    Awesome experience with several stops to swim and enjoy the wonders of Maddalena. Excellent crew and service. Claudia is a fantastic hostess and guide (she’s fluent in 4 languages!). We were impressed by the attention to detail and organization. There was a whaler setting up a safe perimeter to swim around the boat and making sure everyone was safe. Don’t waste your time like us bringing food, there was pasta and fried fish for a very reasonable price.

    It was a very nice trip, it is a boat with chairs organized in rows, you can sit on the top floor on a covered outside space or downstairs inside space. There is an option to eat on the boat some pasta, which are ok for a quick bite. The trip has 4 important stops: a stop for a swim, 2 stops for one hour each for 2 nice beaches and the last one on Maddalena Island where you can eat something or just take a walk.

    Overall a very nice excursion :) The beaches that are visited are gorgeous, but of course always a little overcrowded. The crew on board tries very hard - if you haven't bought lunch for lunch, you sit on the ship and wait, which is a bit of a shame because you could have stayed on the beach in the meantime.
