Deserves to be explored
The La Maddalena Archipelago in the north of Sardinia, is one of the island's many natural parks. The park's goal is to protect the marine ecosystem and, in the process, protect the park's spectacular beaches. La Maddalena is the main island and the one from which the archipelago gets its name. Far from being a sleepy beach town, La Maddalena is a pretty big port town that gets lively during the summer months.
The island is easy to explore with your own vehicle and you can explore the island's many coves and beaches. Beyond the main island, there are many smaller ones (some more accessible than others) and ferry routes from La Maddalena.
