Isola di Spargi

Reviewed By Ann T - Melbourne, Australia

We visited this island when talking one of the many boats out of Palau to visit the archipelago. Therefore, one is always dealing with a beach and space that is suddenly full of people when the boat/s arrive. Nevertheless, we still a pleasant hour or two swimming in beautiful clear water and relaxing on the beach.

Parco Nazionale dell'Arcipelago di La Maddalena

La Maddalena Archipelago National Park is a geomarine protected area consisting of a group of Islands situated in the north-east of the coast of Gallura, in the stretch of sea between Sardinia and Corsica known as Bocche di Bonifacio. These Islands – except for La Maddalena Island housing the homonymous town and characterized by a significant human presence – are entirely deserted or scattered with small human settlements, like in Caprera and Santa Maria Islands.

Took a boat excursion to this parc. Stopped at 3 Islands and the tranquility was wonderful. Lunch was served by some turquoise sea admiring the views. Wonderful day which I will remember forever.

Cala Corsara

Reviewed By chocdikrab - Frankfurt, Germany

cala corsara, located on the southside of the island spargi, is one of the unreached jewels of the archipelago di maddalena. the huge bay, which has four fine sandy beachsections inside the bay is only reachable by boat.. a fifth beachsection...also beautiful...is located nearby the natural harbour on the other side of the small cape which is located at the East End. sometimes it is a little bit noisy at this beachsection because bigger boats arrive and stop there.
we arrived on a early afternoon during a hot and sunny day and a lot of yachts, sailingboats, catamarans and smaller speedboats lay at anchor before the bay.
in the moment we arrived on the beach we thought we were teleported into paradise.
the four beachsection of cala corsara were distributed beautiful in the bay with high Mountains in the back. lush maccia and a lot of bushes grow between the rocks. the beachsections are interrupt from cliffs different styles and big rocks are spreaded in the sand and in the water.
we choosed the beachsection in the middle of the bay, which offers a great view over the whole inner area and the boats infront of the bay. a very interssting granite rock is located there. the huge rock is hollow and a perfect place during hot and sunny days. all beachsections slope gently to the sea and they have sandy ground mostly. between the Beaches a lot of rocks are located under the water surface and watershoes should be used, because sea urchins are habitated there.
the water was crsytalclear and present every shade of grenn and blue till milky white.
it is unbelieveble what nature created on this enchanting place. at the West End of the beach are cliffs located also...there two mysic rocks are located...one is called the witch rock ...the other one the bulldog...also a stoney map of Italy made by the wind and the waves is there to explore.
cala corsara was without question one of the unforgettable highlights during our stay in the archipelago di maddalena...we had one of our nicests stays since we travel in sardegna at cala corsara. when we are back we will be there again without question.

Olivastri Millenari di Santo Baltolu

Reviewed By Thistlemoon - Hyde Park, Vermont

I am a self-described tree-hugger and this is truly one of my favorite places in the entire world! It is quite amazing to be able to see trees that are between 3,000-5,000 years old and which are still bearing fruit! These magnificent trees are well protected and it seems like visitors really respect them,as the younger tree is available to touch and enjoy. There is a small fee, but it is well worth the price to be in the company of these majestic beings.

It does help to speak a little bit of Italian, since the owner and guide only speaks Italian, but even so: well worth the visit, using arms and legs will get you very far and you get to see some extraordinary things. You have to call the owner by phone to get into the museum. We did not have a phone with us, but got lucky: the helpful people of Luras noticed the owner for us. Good thing, since this was the only feature we took the bus from Olbia for. There really isn't a lot to see in Luras, except for a nice bar and if you are in to walking you can see a couple of prehistoric tombs. But back to the museum: it gives a nice etnographic understanding of the region, the way people earned their money, how they handled logistics, how they lived, how they worked cork and also how euthanasia was not an uncommon way to end suffering. Really something else! An we have to say: the owner is so charming!

Spiaggia di Cala Coticcio

Reviewed By Vasilka T

This beach is truly something special. Amazing waters, surrounded by interesting cliffs, with a stunning contrast between bright blue and yellow. Water is crystal clear, and with lots of fish to see if you enjoy snorkeling. Definitely recommend!
Keep in mind that to visit it you will have to go through a hike which is about 30mins on the way down, and about 45 on the way back. If you feel like it's too hard for you when going towards the beach, you shod know it is harder when climbing up.

Fantastic colours, great rock formations and crystal clear waters. An excellent place to take photos. The Beaches are small and down a steep slope, so proper shoes recommended. Great waters and nice place to swim.

Spiaggia di Talmone

Reviewed By David-five-o - London, United Kingdom

Be prepared to have a walk through trees and over rocks, but it is worth it. We parked at the end of the road at the roundabout. The path can be hard to find at first, but once on it, you can not go wrong. It is more difficult if you have bags of stuff for the beach. The Beaches total about 3 and are all about the same size (small!) As it is so inaccessible, it does not get too busy, even in high season. The rocks are great to climb on and there are a few jumping spots, but be careful for rocks. Best to have shoes to climb on the rocks as they can be treacherous.

A wonderful place with rocks that had been shaped by the sea water in all those centuries. when we visited it there was not many tourists, but sometimes you can find there local hippies that live hand in hand with nature.
