La Maddalena Archipelago: 5 beaches for a September dip

The luckiest are those who swim in September, when the water is warmer than at the beginning of summer. And the islands reveal all their wild charm.

Summer is not yet over in Sardinia, and September offers the chance to enjoy sunny days to spend on the beach. Between the Costa Smeralda and the La Maddalena Archipelago, the bucket list of beaches to visit seems endless. Turquoise waters and soft, white sand characterise these jewels of Gallura, easily reachable while holidaying at the Cala di Falco Resort.
Not to be missed is the discovery of the La Maddalena Archipelago islands, with one of the excursions departing from Cannigione tourist harbour, a strategic point to reach these sandy and water paradises, featuring hidden coves and turquoise waters.

If you haven’t yet decided where to drop anchor, here are some recommendations. These are the five most beautiful beaches in the La Maddalena Archipelago for a late-summer dip:

    • A solitary and wild nature welcomes those who approach Budelli Island, famous for its unique Pink Beach. Cala di Roto, as it was formerly called, is a rare jewel that stands out for the uniqueness of its sand, coloured pink by the shells of small marine animals. Made famous in the 1960s by Antonioni’s film Red Desert, it symbolises the pristine beauty of the La Maddalena Archipelago National Park. This area is protected and inaccessible to preserve this natural heritage.

    • On Budelli Island, opposite the sea enclosed between Santa Maria and Razzoli, is also the Knight’s Beach, notoriously known as the Mantle of the Madonna. A pure and immaculate veil, with delicate shades and infinite turquoise transparencies, touches the shore and the granite rocks. A popular oasis in the summer months, but perfect for a September dip.

    • In the southeastern part of Spargi Island, you’ll find panoramas you’re unlikely to forget. A must-visit is Cala Soraya, a beach named after Queen Soraya who adored it. With its crescent shape, it was originally called Cala Ciaccaro by the locals, and is surrounded by splendid Phoenician junipers, helichrysum and sea lilies.

La Maddalena Archipelago: Cala Granara

  • Still on Spargi Island is Cala Granara, framed by a granite inlet and accompanied by three other small coves a few metres away. The pink granite surrounding the coves is particularly striking for the imaginative shapes carved by wind and water. Observing them, you can play at recognising the Boot and the Witch.
  • On Caprera, the island favoured by the hero of two worlds, Garibaldi, we recommend visiting Cala Coticcio, the small cove photographed from every angle that has earned the nickname ‘Little Tahiti’ for the extraordinary transparency of the sea.

In the selection, we must also mention the romantic Cala Serena or the ‘Polynesian’ Relitto and Due Mari beaches on Caprera, as well as the turquoise joy you’ll find in the enchanting Cala Corsara, Cala Conneri, and Cala Granara on Spargi.
