Caprera
Island

The island of Garibaldi, of Spiaggia del Relitto (the Beach of the Shipwreck) and of Tahiti, an island of dreamlike cliffs and coves such as Cala Napoletana, Cala Caprarese and Cala Brigantina.

Easily reachable from the island of La Maddalena thanks to the Moneta bridge dam that connects the south-eastern end of the Casa del Parco with Puntarella on the west coast of Caprera, the island of Giuseppe Garibaldi is famous above all for the presence of the house in which the 'Hero of the two worlds’ spent the last years of his life and where it is possible to visit the place of his burial. But Caprera is also the second largest island of the La Maddalena Archipelago, with almost 35 kilometers of jagged coasts and high cliffs that hide inlets of incredible charm such as Le Tre Calette, Cala Caprarese, Cala Carminio, Cala Brigantina, Cala dell'Angelo and the wonderful coves between Punta Coda and Monte Fico.

Insights on the island of Caprera

Caprera has many souls that coexist thanks to its extraordinary history and the incredible richness of its nature. The island of the White House of the Hero of the two worlds it is home to one of the most prestigious and ancient sailing schools in the Mediterranean, which has had among the instructors the great actor Gian Maria Volonté, forever linked to the Archipelago where, on the nearby island of La Maddalena, he was buried by his choice. Caprera is the island of Spiaggia dei Due Mari and of the great cliff that runs along its eastern coast almost uninterrupted, an island that has managed to keep its wild nature almost intact by accepting to host man on his own terms and which, still today, it guarantees unspoiled corners despite the tourist pressure of recent years.

By car, on foot or by sea, Caprera is the island of a thousand surprises, a place of naturalistic itineraries, landings and beaches ideal for a day at the beach surrounded by rocks and white sands.

For lovers of beaches and of the sea to sail, Caprera begins at the landing of Cala Garibaldi, in the large inlet that opens north of the Moneta bridge, just beyond Punta Cavicchio. Here, the easy landing recognizable by the presence of the Italiani Islands that close the wide bay, means that the boats are always numerous, especially since in the northern part of the inlet there is Cala Serena, one of the most beautiful beaches of Caprera and of the entire Archipelago of La Maddalena. White sand, shallow water and blue water make this small sheltered cove one of the postcard destinations of tourism in northern Sardinia.

Going up to the west coast, after a particularly jagged and difficult to land stretch, you reach the Tre Calette, tiny beaches of golden sand separated by rock spurs, rugged granite formations and wild vegetation. These beaches are difficult to reach directly, both due to the complexity of the seabed suitable only for small boats and because they are not served by driveways. A trekking of medium difficulty, however, makes them reachable starting from the path that heads towards the more famous Cala Caprarese, a deep inlet in the rocks that ends in a small clear beach at the foot of a high cliff. A paradise for those who are not discouraged by the difficulties of a long path that winds through a nature that is sometimes impervious and grumpy.

Punta Galera, Cala Napoletana and the north-eastern cliffs of Caprera.

The extreme northern tip of Caprera is called Punta Galera, sheltered by the beautiful Cala Napoletana which consists of some sandy beaches between gray and pink surrounded by a high cliff and thick vegetation that almost reaches the sea. Difficult to land due to the insidious seabed and rather exposed to westerly winds, Cala Napoletana is the last inlet facing the eastern coasts of La Maddalena. A long walk to its beaches will surely be rewarded by the harshness of a landscape among the most evocative of the Archipelago and by a panorama that embraces the stretch of coast that from the beach of the Cala Spalmatore cliff reaches the Testa del Polpo (the octopus head), the Capocchia D'ù Purpu, of the island of Giardinelli.

Not far from Cala Napoletana, the Punta Crucitta beach is located at the base of a fjord where a long stretch of cliff starts, practically uninterrupted, which characterizes the entire north-eastern side of Caprera. A stretch of coast intended above all for those who have the opportunity to travel these waters by boat, naturally relying on expert maneuvers who have a good knowledge of the seabed of this area and are able to deal with the strong winds that often blow on the Archipelago. The cliff, beautiful from the sea, is ideal for long and difficult treks that lead to the tiny Massa del Cervo beach and to the remains of military settlements such as Battery of Candeo. The same cliff overlooks immediately deep seabeds, which color the waters of an intense blue up to the peninsula that shelters the famous beaches of Cala Coticcio.

The two beaches set between the rocks can be reached by walk or by sea, thanks to a large bay that allows a large number of boats to stop. The beaches of Cala Coticcio, especially the innermost one, are known as Tahiti, due to the light, almost pink color of the sand and the intense blue of the two pools of water enclosed between the rocks, with shallow sandy bottoms that slope slowly between the walls of rocks.

Cala Carminio, Cala Brigantina, Cala Dell'Angelo and the great cliff of Caprera.

Continuing south, just past Cala Coticcio with its "Tahitian" beaches, you reach the small beach of Cala Carmino, covered with stones and pebbles, difficult to approach and reachable only by walk through a path that is not easy which crosses a dense scrub of vegetation that covers the cove almost to the borderline with the water. The high rocky wall overlooking the sea is Mount Tejalone, one of the highest peaks in the Archipelago, flanked to the west by a path that leads to the Cala Coticcio beach car parking and continues until it reaches the Batteria Arbuticci and the Giuseppe Garibaldi Memorial in which it is possible to retrace the stages in the life of one of the founding fathers of the Unification of Italy. The view is breathtaking and allows you to understand in a single glance the whole of Caprera, a large part of the Archipelago and the Strait of Bonifacio and the rocky coasts of the nearby Corsica.

In a narrow and deep inlet, at the slopes of Mount Rasu, and the remains of the military batteries of Poggio Rasu Inferiore and Superiore, there is the Cala Brigantina beach. Squeezed between gorgeous rock walls covered with a mantle of Mediterranean Scrub that goes up behind the cove, Cala Brigantina has a small beach of medium-grained golden sand, overlooking an equally small stretch of sea sheltered from the winds and usually very busy.

This stretch of cliff is distinguished by the presence of some tongues of sand that are very difficult to reach except by sea and which, precisely due to the difficulties of landing and the fact of being completely isolated by land from the imposing cliff, are not very frequented even during the high season. The magnificent Cala Dell'Angelo is certainly an exception, a narrow inlet that seems to herald the softening of the southern coast of Caprera, offering a beach of pebbles and reddish sand, at the end of a deep gorge protected by dense and wild vegetation that it also covers the upper part of Punta Porto Palma like a cloak, which closes its southern profile.

Cala Caprese, the Beach of the Two Seas, the Beach of the Shipwreck, the Punta Rossa fjord and the wide gulf of Porto Palma.

In its descent towards the south, the cliff softens, giving way to a stretch of low rocks that slope down into the ‘isthmus of the two seas’, and to the wide Cala Caprese, destination for most of the boats that carry out tourist services along the routes of the Archipelago. The Spiaggia dei Due Mari is a beautiful beach of light sand in the northern part that turns pink to granite in its southern part. The strait that leads to the wide peninsula of Punta Rossa facing the small Isola della Pecora is famous because it is the obligatory passage to one of the most famous and popular beaches of Caprera, the Spiaggia del Relitto (the beach of the wreck), which owes its name to the remains of a sailing ship of which now only one of the masts and the profile of the keel remains. The beach of the wreck is among the most crowded during the high season, even if this does not diminish its charm, which derives not only from the Beached Wreck, but also from the white sand, from the sandy and slowly sloping bottom that transmits to the wide mirror of water in front of the beach an unmistakable shade of color between green and blue. To the south of the Spiaggia del Relitto, the peninsula of Punta Rossa becomes narrow and starting from the Martina beach and continuing to Cala Andreani, up to the Punta Rossa Batteries, it offers a continuous change of colors and conformations. From the white of the Cala Andreani, the intense pink of the rocks facing the eastern sea, the gray of the rocks and the golden shades of the beaches that line the remains of the military complexes on the west coast, everything contrasts with the infinite variety of shades of light blue, green and blue that color the waters of the southern tip of Caprera that overlooks the Porco Island surrounded by rocks.

But the Spiaggia dei Due Mari is also a point of arrival of the road that, starting from the center of the island, runs along the wide gulf of Porto Palma, overlooked by Cala Masca, Cala Conchiglia, Cala degli Inglesi, the Porto Palma beach, Punta Coda, several piers and the only beach that guarantees free access to dogs from all over Caprera.

The beaches of Monte Fico, Punta Coda Sardinia, Punta Stagnali and the House of Garibaldi.

At the end of the wide gulf of Porto Palma we find Monte Fico, joined to the island by the beaches of Punta Coda. The entire rocky profile is marked by the presence of myriads of tiny coves, many of which are sandy but surrounded by rocks, overlooking very clear waters and sandy bottoms dotted with rocks and islets that make the whole area a perfect place for snorkeling on not-windy days. The wind is in fact a constant in this area of ​​the archipelago and the strong mistral, transformed by the particular conformation of the islands, tends to become a west wind, as the visitors of the Caprera Sailing Center know very well since they have their adopted homeland right in this area between Punta Coda Sardinia , the peninsula of Monte Fico and Punta Stagnali. It is in fact on this coast, overlooking the nearby Santo Stefano Island, once the site of an important military arsenal, that Cala Baccà and Cala del Centro Velico open up, beaches of dark golden sand, not easily reachable from land, but since forever a point of reference for sailors who sail in the blue and green waters near Punta Stagnali.

It is precisely in the shelter of the latter that the large inlet that hosts the Porto Stagnali opens, around which the small village of Stagnali has developed, inhabited all year round and a favorite destination for tourism and starting point for most part of the naturalistic and historical routes that cross the Caprera hinterland.

In Stagnali it is possible to visit, in addition to Italia in Miniatura which is located near the pier, part of the geo-mineralogical and naturalistic museum of La Maddalena-Caprera, the Museum of the Sea and seafaring traditions, and continue towards the nearby Garibaldi Compendium which includes the Garibaldi Museum, the famous White House where the Hero of the Two Worlds spent the last years of his life, and the sober granite tomb that preserves his memory.

The Garibaldi Compendium is also the reference point for those wishing to go along the nature trails that lead to the Fosso di Santo Stefano, Mount Tejalone and from here to Cala Coticcio and Cala Carminio, to the more accessible Cala Garibaldi or to the Giuseppe Garibaldi Memorial hosted in the Arbuticci Battery or towards the north, towards the rugged Punta Crucitta and Punta Galera with their coves facing the mother island of La Maddalena or towards the open sea looking towards the Italian peninsula.

To know

The island of Caprera is under the protection of the La Maddalena Archipelago National Park and is partly included in the Tb area, the general reserve land area except for the area of ​​Cala Stagnali and the village behind it and the area of Cala Garibaldi which fall within the Tc zone of partial reserve, while a large part of the great eastern reef and the Pecora Island are included in the Ta zone, a land area of ​​integral reserve.

The whole marine area in front of Punta Rossa and bordered to the north by the Pecora Island, is MA zone, that is the Marine Area of ​​the Integral Reserve, in which navigation, parking, mooring and scuba diving are prohibited.

Furthermore, the marine areas overlooked by the Messa del Cervo Beach, surmounted by the Candeo Battery, and the whole area of ​​the Punta Coticcio peninsula, are PIP areas, Protected Diving Points, in which navigation, parking and unauthorized mooring are prohibited, as well as unauthorized sport fishing and unauthorized diving.

The map of the zoning of the La Maddalena Archipelago National Park also indicates the presence of shoals near Punta Galera, but no material produced by the Park Authority can be considered as a substitute for the Cartography of the Hydrographic Institute of the Marina.

To visit the Archipelago by sea, it is therefore advisable to rely on qualified personnel, expert navigators and maneuverers in possession of an adequate knowledge of the difficult waters of the Archipelago which also around Caprera can prove to be full of pitfalls.
