In the northern region of Sardinia lies the stunning Maddalena Archipelago, a group of islands renowned for their crystal-clear waters, secluded beaches and rich marine life. Sailing in these pristine waters is an unforgettable experience.

The Maddalena archipelago is located at the northern tip of Sardinia, just before the Strait of Bonifacio, the stretch of sea separating Sardinia from Corsica.

There are two points where you can embark to visit the archipelago, namely Marina Cala dei Sardi, in the Gulf of Cugnana where Portisco marina is also located, and Cannigione.

The former is the only Italian marina owned by a charter company, NSS charter. This marina is designed to make arrival and boarding operation easier for charterers.

Setting sail at Cala dei Sardi, you can reach La Maddalena in just less than two hours, but it would be a shame to head straight there. Taking advantage of the few hours of daylight after check-in, you can reach one of the many small and lovely bays on the coast a few miles away from Cala dei Sardi and then head for the archipelago the next morning.

The best time to visit the archipelago is from April to the first part of July. June and July in particular are two great months, when temperatures are mild but warm enough for swimming.

After the first fortnight of July, the crowding begins and will reach its peak in the two middle weeks of August, when there are so many boats at sea that some bays look like harbors.
