Not surprisingly, La Maddalena is known above all for its beaches not only the most beautiful in Italy, but all over the world as they have nothing to envy the famous Caribbean beaches.

Arriving on the other hand in Caprera, through a road that connects the two islands, you can find the Spiaggia del Relitto and Cala Andreani.
However, the most suggestive and idyllic place of the whole group of islands is the Pink Beach of Budelli north of Spargi, so called because the whole coastline is composed of this pink sand formed by shells and corals, which gives it a magical appearance and brings you into an enchanted world.
