Full description

Embark on an adventure to discover the stunning coastline and outlying islands of Sardinia on a boat. Cruise to the islands of Spargi, La Maddalena, and Santa Maria, and enjoy their pristine beaches, waters, and nature.

Check-in between 9 AM and 10:15 AM, leave Palau at 10:30 AM, and cruise towards the wonderful island of Spargi. 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. Leave the island of Spargi and go along the coast towards the island of Budelli for a photographic stop at the famous Pink Beach "Spiaggia Rosa". Enter the natural swimming pool of Porto Della Madonna for photos, where the emerald color of the water will take your breath away. Head on to the island of Santa Maria for our next beach stop, once again you can easily get off the boat with your things to sunbathe, have a swim or go on a lovely walk to the old lighthouse on the island. The last stop varies — on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays after Santa Maria, the Island of Caprera will be visited for a fantastic swimming stop in the natural aquarium at Cala Coticcio (Tahiti). On Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday, the final stop after Santa Maria is in the charming historical center of the mother island, La Maddalena, for shopping and exploring. Arrive back in Palau at around 5-5:30 PM.

An excursion that I recommend the panorama is sublime and the beaches heavenly!! A lack of information during the crossing, they are done too quickly to understand them ... The time spent on the island of Maddalena is very short just enough time to have a drink or eat an ice cream not really to visit the city .

Hi all my girlfriend and I have tried this wonderful experience. On board you will spend a day in the company of well-prepared and very nice people and in close contact with one of the most beautiful places in Sardinia. A wonderful sea with coves, natural pools, beautiful backdrops and a truly uncontaminated place where you can only get there by boat. On board you can buy a bit of everything from bar products such as coffee, snacks, drinks to mussel soutè and finally with Nutella crepes. I recommend this experience to everyone and say thank you and see you next time.

only 4 stars because the time for the 3 stops (two on the beach) and one in the capital La Maddalena were shared equally. I would have wished that the third stop would have been longer, all the more so that many used the stop to visit the restaurant. The narrator spoke rather quickly and not so clearly. The information that was given during the trip was very little and actually mostly the information was reduced to naming the places you see, I could find that out for myself with a simple look at the map. It's not mandatory, but a joke or an interesting story would have been nice. I've seen far better and funnier female voice actors.
