Sardinia’s neighbouring islands are a paradise for boat tours. Many of its hidden, divine white beaches can only be reached by water. The best way to explore the archipelago of La Maddalena, a group of 62 islets which was designated as a national park in 1994, is by boat. You can either book a guided tour on a sailboat or dinghy for up to 12 people from La Maddalena, or you can take the helm of a motorised dinghy yourself. You don’t even need a boating licence to do so. Cruises on bigger boats for up to 50 people are also available.
Rose-tinted Without the Glasses
The little, mostly uninhabited islands of the archipelago, boasting fairytale bays and beaches, are only reachable by water. The famous Spaggia Rosa on the island of Budelli offers an enchanting sight from the water, but tourists must remain on the boat. The beach owes its pink colour to millions of little crustaceans whose remains were swept onto the shore. For 25 years – until May 2021 – Budelli was home to only one resident. He protected the island’s flora and fauna. But there are alternatives: bright bathing beaches with crystal-clear water on Santo Stefano, Santa Maria, Spargi, and Razzoli.
