Maddalena Island

When you go sailing in Maddalena waters, you enter a pristine natural world of incredible beauty. Everywhere are islands, rocky and rugged. The white sails of local yachts stand in stark relief against the blue sea as the sleek boats heel in the steady winds from the northwest. In the lees of the islands are superlative coves and bays well protected and picturesque. In short, sailing Maddalena is an experience you must enjoy firsthand to fully comprehend its majestic beauty and inspiring adventure. Because Maddalena is a tourist destination with ferry service from the main island, the port of Cala Gavetta is home to a small town with some shops, and a few restaurants and bars. You can opt for a dash of civilization, albeit in a very laid-back and somewhat rustic fashion, or you can go for more of the unspoiled natural setting the marine park has to offer by sailing to the many bays and coves along the extensive coast of this 12-square-mile jewel of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
