The ARCIPELAGO DELLA MADDALENA is considered a natural masterpiece thanks to its incredible harmony between land and sea.

this bay it’s easy to reach only by boat. We are in front of a fantastic
scenario, a truly paradise surrounded by granitic pinky rocks. CALA COTICCIO is
split in 2 bays by a thin granitic line and is well considered one of the
Mediterranean Sea most beautiful bay. Here you will be covered from winds coming
from West, the sea button is quite irregular, please sail with caution
Sailing to the North of CAPRERA it will appear this small and wild bay nestle
among steep rocks and a blank shore lightly touched by an intense green sea. It
is a peaceful place but not easy to anchor due to the irregular sea button. However
it is well covered by the winds coming between Est and South, except with
strong winds coming from any directions
Located on the occidental side of the
Island, CALA GARIBALDI was last home for Giuseppe Garibaldi where he built the
“Casa Bianca” (today an house museum). CALA GARIBALDI it’s a mandatory stop on
your cruise either for the incredible seawaters and because is well covered by
winds from South. To enter in the bay you must be very carful because the area
is full of rocks and shallows.

the West cost of LA MADDALENA. In here there is CALA FRANCESE, a jewel of the
sea with its green seawaters, almost desert, a paradise for a motorboats

SPARGI, a magic world made of white beaches and pink granitic rocks floating on
the turquoise CALA CORSARA seawaters. This bay thanks to its unique colors and
the many coves it’s one of the most popular of the ARCIPELAGO DELLA MADALENA. It’s
a pleasant anchoring with weak winds coming between West and North Est, but be
careful to not anchor on the touristic ferry routes.
