The Maddalena Islands lie just 2 kilometres from the northeastern shore of Sardinia, Italy. They sit in the Straits of Bonifacio, between it and Corsica.
The main island, La Maddalena , is surrounded by Budelli, Caprera, Razzoli, Santa Maria, Santo Stefano and Spargi. This group of small granitic rock islands has been inhabited since prehistoric times.
The islands boast crystal clear waters, pink sand, a series of coves and rocks, blue cliffs rising from deep seabeds and intense colours. They are perfect for diving, swimming and water sports.
