Departure towards Budelli

Departure from the port of Santa Teresa Gallura and navigation towards Budelli.
During the navigation you can admire in the distance the white cliffs of Bonifacio and the breathtaking view of the north coast of Sardinia and the south coast of Corsica.

Panoramic view of Spiaggia Rosa

On the Budelli Island we will be able to see the legendary Pink Beach, one of the most beautiful in the world! It owes its name to the color of the sand, rich in tiny fragments of bryozoan skeletons, coral, granite, shells and mollusc shells. The spectacular color is due to a pink microorganism that 'inhabits' the Posidonia oceanica. When it dies, the shells are dragged ashore, breaking up under the action of water and wind. To protect this very fragile ecosystem, anchoring of boats and bathing is not allowed since 1998.

Stop at Santa Maria island beach

Most of the islands and islets of the Archipelago are uninhabited. The island of Santa Maria, on the other hand, hosts about twenty houses which are mainly frequented during the summer. We will go down to the beach by mooring comfortably at the pier with the walkway, and you can sunbathe and swim in crystal clear waters.

Panoramic view of the Manto della Madonna

We will continue sailing and pass one of the most famous points of interest in the archipelago: the Manto della Madonna or Porto della Madonna. This area is so called because it is considered a safe landing place in almost all winds. The incredible blue of this stretch of sea takes your breath away: a real uncontaminated natural swimming pool, with a low and transparent seabed. Absolutely a must-see!
