We came during September, so considered the off season, and the beaches were still a bit crowded. It was a bit hard to find room for the four of us together but not impossible. The beaches were stunning and the information was interesting. We appreciated the boat having it’s own dock to walk off of at the islands instead of having to ferry in on smaller boats. The only complaint was it was a difficult to know which boat we were supposed to be meeting at initially.

A great tour with beautiful places, no problem even with toddlers. At the first stop you can only get into the water from the boat, limited to 10min. At the second stop the beach is very rocky, water shoes are an advantage, here you stay 1st. The third stop is the most beautiful, white sand, turquoise water here we were 1.45h. Finally, a 1 hour stay in Maddalena which makes the trip almost perfect. To complain there is really only that you hardly understand the announcements and there is no real English guide. Furthermore, you should have had enough breakfast in the morning, because lunch is pretty bad.

Yet another wonderful day across the archipelago La Maddalena. Cala Granara left me in awe. Last year, the porto della Madonna was my favourite, but now Cala Granara was beyond expectations. Route very well chosen. The staff was friendly and this was a well organised excursion. Live guide in 4 languages. “Hut ab!”
