At first sight at mysterious and picturesque rocks of La Maddalena Archipelago, which make a striking contrast with crystal-clear azure sea a tale of biblical Eden automatically comes to mind. This chain of islands of different size is located near north-eastern coast of Sardinia and attracts attention of travelers who seek solitude and try to reach harmony with nature. As for despite the close proximity of civilization the archipelago still makes a part of untouched nature, almost not affected with human activity.
Out of more than 60 islands of Maddalena only La Maddalena, Razzoli, Santa Maria, Caprera, Budelli, Spargi and Santo Stefano are large and peopled. The archipelago is located in Strait of Bonifacio, which divides Corsica from Sardinia.
