A typical day
discovering the islands
Our excursions to La Maddalena depart from the port of Cannigione and last a whole day.
You will have the opportunity to discover the archipelago in the best way between stops on the beaches and numerous baths in the natural pools and ponds that characterize this area.
It will be a journey dedicated to discovering the most beautiful and relaxing spots. For those who do not want to rent an exclusive dinghy, we offer an ideal tour that touches most of the points of interest of the archipelago. Generally we stop for four to five baths at anchor and two stops on the beach.
This is our ideal tour that will allow us to sail in the morning and navigate by the east side of Caprera Island. There are two stops on the beach and many baths. It is a complete tour that will allow you to admire and enjoy the entire archipelago of La Maddalena

An alternative tour
Passage between Caprera and La Maddalena
The hot day is cooled by a light mistral breeze. We release the moorings at 10:00. After getting to know each other and having evaluated the choices to make during the excursion, we are ready to leave the pier of the Gulf of Arzachena, heading towards the island of La Maddalena.
We sail taking the island of Caprera to the east and the island of La Maddalena to the west. We have covered about 16 km of navigation and we decide to stop at the southern stretch of Cala Spalmatore. The crystal clear waters of this strip of sand will allow us to relax and inaugurate the first swim of the day. Time passes quickly under the rays of a July sun. Time to enjoy the turquoise of these waters and we set off towards the north. Direction.. Island of Santa Maria
It's swimming time... in the natural pools. Around noon we enter the stretch of water that separates "The three sisters": the island of Santa Maria, the island of Razzoli and the island of Budelli. We moor to spend one of the most satisfying baths of our outing. The turquoise that surrounds this stretch of water has nothing to envy to much more prestigious locations. You can swim in the midst of numerous schools of colorful fish and relax in the boat's sundecks. Only the arrival of lunchtime and the stomach's request for attention will awaken you from this daydream. We drop the moorings and head towards Santa Maria passing through the famous Pink Beach that you will be able to admire.
The beach of Santa Maria with its fine sand awaits us for lunch, with the longest stop of our excursion to La Maddalena.
We have the opportunity to eat and rest in the shade of the umbrellas provided by the skipper. After about two hours of rest we leave for the island of Spargi and the beautiful Cala Corsara, also visiting the beaches of Cala Granara and Cala Soraya. Then a quick stop at the characteristic beach of Cala Conneri.
We return to Cannigione at a moderate speed so that you can enjoy the return trip. The thirty minutes that separate us from Cannigione will allow you to admire the coasts of the island of Santo Stefano to the east and Punta Sardegna to the west.
THIS IS THE DESCRIPTION OF A TYPICAL DAY WITH SPECIFIC WEATHER CONDITIONS.
WE REMIND YOU THAT IN CASE OF GROUP EXCURSIONS, THE SCHEDULE WILL BE DECIDED BY THE SKIPPER BASED ON THE EVALUATION OF THE WEATHER AND SEA CONDITIONS.
