From Palau: La Maddalena Full-Day Archipelago Catamaran Tour

1. From Palau: La Maddalena Full-Day Archipelago Catamaran Tour

Set out from Palau on a full-day tour of La Maddalena Archipelago aboard a comfortable and stylish catamaran. Sail along the coast and stop at uninhabited islands along the way. Sunbathe, swim, and enjoy refreshments throughout the day. Depart from Palau harbor in the morning and set sail onto the crystal clear waters of Sardinia. Admire panoramic views of the island as you travel along the coast, watching out for Porto Raphael and its famous villas along the way. Pass by the Punta Sardinia lighthouse before arriving at the first stop of the day, the island of Spargi. As the boat pulls into the bay of the island, marvel at your tranquil and uninhabited surroundings. Enjoy some time to swim in the crystal clear waters at Cala Soraya, named by Princess Soraya in the 60s, or visit the bay just next to it, Cala Corsara. After your swim, regain some energy with a refreshing drink. Later, the captain will decide on the next island to visit, depending on the weather and the tide. Arrive at either Razzoli, Santa Maria, or La Maddalena and spend some more time cooling off in the water, or relaxing on deck.  Finally, arrive at the last stop of the day for more swimming around the islands. If you've brought your snorkeling gear, you can explore the marine wildlife of the area. Put your adrenaline to the test with a big jump from the catamaran, or stay onboard and sunbathe if you’d rather relax.

A big thank you to the crew (Riccardo, Chiara and Captain Franco) always very welcoming and friendly. Excellent lunch on the boat with a spectacular view. Beautiful experience, definitely worth repeating.
