Full description
Boarding at 9:45 AM, leave Palau at 10:30 AM  and cruise towards the wonderful island of Spargi. When the boat arrives, take your beach bags straight onto the islands where you will see beaches that you can choose from for your first stop. 

When you come back to the boat, lunch will be ready and consists of delicious freshly made pasta, though mussels are available as an optional second course. Leave the island of Spargi and go along the coast towards the island of Budelli for a photographic stop at the famous Pink Beach "Spiaggia Rosa". Enter the natural swimming pool of Porto Della Madonna where the emerald color of the water will take your breath away. Head on to the island of Santa Maria for our next beach stop, once again you can easily get off the boat with your things to sunbathe, have a swim or go on a lovely walk to the old lighthouse on the island.

The last stop varies—on Tuesdays and Fridays after Santa Maria, the Island of Caprera will be visited for a fantastic swimming stop in the natural aquarium at Cala Coticcio (Tahiti). On Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, the final stop after Santa Maria is in the charming historical center La Maddalena island, for shopping and exploring. Arrive back to Palau at around 5:30 PM.

The Tour was great, very friendly staff, food was rather poor and passengers were highly obnoxious!!!! They kept smoking the entire trip which ruined the experience on the boat. Plus the diesel fumes from the boat were very powerful which made breathing a disaster. Luckily we got enough time on the islands to escape all the morons that had to smoke literally every 2 minutes which was the most disgusting part of the trip. Overall I would recommend it but bring an oxygen mask if you value fresh air!!!!

Mediocre cruse in an idilic landscape

THE MADDALENA ARCHIPELAGO IS A DREAM LOCATION. The cruise, however, does not rise to expectations due to the high crowds on the ship and on the islands and beaches visited. Bad lunch. Very friendly staff. I think a better choice would be a small boat, with fewer people, even at a higher price
