Your tour will begin when you depart from either La Maddalena or Palau port and embark on an unforgettable journey to discover the Maddalena Archipelago.  Along the way, you’ll have the chance to admire the Island of Santo Stefano, La Maddalena and Caprera, the Bear Rock of Palau, all the while being entertained by your expert guide who’ll tell you all about the history of these fascinating islands. Stop off at the gorgeous beaches of Spargi and Budelli, and Santa Maria just for swimming from the boat. La Maddalena, the ‘mother island’ of the cluster, will surely charm you with its historic town center brimming with quaint traditional shops.

Yet another wonderful day across the archipelago La Maddalena. Cala Granara left me in awe. Last year, the porto della Madonna was my favourite, but now Cala Granara was beyond expectations. Route very well chosen. The staff was friendly and this was a well organised excursion. Live guide in 4 languages. “Hut ab!”

Las calas impresionantes. Viendo las opiniones anteriores, nos llevamos nuestros equipos para hacer snorkel. La visita la traducen en varios idiomas( italiano, inglés, español). Los mozos de a bordo están muy pendientes de los pasajeros, incluso te ayudan a bajar del barco en las calas con zonas rocosas. De comer te dan a elegir al comienzo de la visita entre macarrones con queso o con gambas. Raciones pequeñas, aunque en nuestro caso ese día sobró mucha comida y ofrecieron repetir.
