When the boat arrives, take your beach bags straight onto the white sandy beaches of Cala Corsara, and choose to sunbathe, snorkel, or explore some of the cove's historical features.

What people are saying about La Maddalena

Dear, Today is our last holiday day in beautiful Olbia and tomorrow we leave for Rome. Yesterday, Wednesday, September 8, is a day that I will remember for a long time. We were blessed with La Maddalena archipelago: a boat trip! Before booking, I had read the reviews here that were not positive. But, because we wanted to experience it in our own way, we booked it anyway, looking at the weather conditions, it was 27 degrees and no rain was expected. And, I'll tell you! It's unbelievably beautiful! Charge your phone battery well and bring an extra charging bank if you can because you won't stop filming and photographing. With such weather, it is better to put on your swimming trunks before you get on the bus. Enjoy the trip!

The booking with getyourguide was smooth and precise without a hitch. The experience of the excursion on the island of La Maddalena was truly amazing, obviously helped by the truly suggestive places.

Everything about the trip from start to finish was excellent. If I had one small criticism it would be that the English of the guide giving information on the boat was very hard to understand !

Fantastic experience to redo a nice well organized tour with stops in the most beautiful beaches. You can eat on board and visit the village of Maddalena.

Go smoothly, see everything that is budgeted for, I'd say it's worth it.
