La Maddalena is the main town and main island of the La Maddalena Arcepaggio
Served as a statigic military post for most of Europes recorded history, due to its easy access to shipping lanes. Once bombarded by a young Napoleon.
A product of India slamming in to Asia and Europe millions of years ago, these islands are mainly jagged rock that form steep cliffs and high peaks with amazing views all around. Along with pristine beaches, one in particular so secluded because of its pink sand. Tourist would bottle up the sand and over years its began to disappear, so the local government marked to off limits, only to be seen from a boat.
Cold windy winters. Amazing Fall, Spring and warm Summers
Better to rent a house for 2 weeks. Not many hotels. Withe the Sardianian President restricting any building within 1.5 miles from the beach, most of La Maddalena is how it has been for many centuries.
Unless you're a good uphill walker, small car is best.
Everything. The main island takes about 30 min to drive around.
Rent a privat sailboat w/ a captain. The local captains know of the best spots, and they usually cook for you too.
Most of the shops are expensive. The African Immergrants have vending usually in the piazzas. They are lower priced, and usually unique.
Anywhere along the water
