The Parco Nazionale dell'Archipelago di La Maddalena is a collection of islands scattered off Sardinia's northeastern coast. Established as a geomarine national park in 1994, the islands have been on UNESCO's World Heritage site's shortlist since 2006 for their variety of marine and plant life. But tourists tend to visit for the eye candy – the rock formations, the snow-white beaches and the blue-green Mediterranean waters.
Recent travelers said this group of islands rivals those in the Caribbean, thanks to the culture, food and beauty of the place. Others call it a paradise and gush over its crystal clear aquamarine waters.
The best way to reach the Parco Nazionale dell'Arcipelago di La Maddalena is by boat. You can book your passage from Palau (on Sardinia's northern tip) to the islands through ferry and tour operators like the traveler-approved MJ Tours and Elena. For more information, visit the park's website.
