Full description

Board the Luxury Virginia, our motor yacht. The boat has three decks. The first two floors are dedicated to the Ponte Standard, an open space area where seats are not allocated. The third floor of the boat is dedicated to the VIP Deck, an area with limited access for adults where each will have its own chaise longue assigned for the whole day. Experience the archipelago of La Maddalena away from the crowds on this full-day cruise. Swim in the crystal clear waters around Cala dell'Amore and Porto della Madonna. Visit the town of La Maddalena and enjoy the view of Bear Rock and Porto Rafael.

Start your adventure at Cala dell'Amore on Spargi Island. Take in sight inaccessible to many tourists as your motor yacht is the only licensed tourist boat that can stop in this fabulous bay. Continue to the famous Port of the Madonna and experience the striking shades of blue water.  

Next, continue to Pink Beach on Budelli Island. Finally, stroll around the island of La Maddalena, the only inhabited island and the largest among the more than 60 islands that make up the archipelago. Go shopping or visit the historic city center during your free time.

If you are coming from the Olbia, San Teodoro, or surrounding areas, add 30 minutes to your expected arrival time and to your GPS' estimation, if using a GPS.

The ship looks better in reality than in pictures:)It was a lovely way to spend the day like this!I recommend.The only minus was that I think we were the only English speakers on the ship and they forgot to guide so that we could understand,too.We almost missed the”pink”beach…But I reminded this to a guide(a young gentleman whom I thank!) and he translated for us.

Brilliant 7 hour boat trip seeing some breathtaking scenery around La Maddalena Archipelago. The Boat and the staff were fantastic, and there were a few swim stops which were much needed on a hot day. The whole day was amazing and would recommend the trip to everyone. 10/10

It was an amazing cruise where we saw the islands, stopped a few times to swim in the cristal clear waters and saw the La Maddalena town for an hour. Everything worked great with this company. Only minus was that the cruise was half an hour late but we were prepared for that.
