Sardinia, the second largest island in the Mediterranean (after Sicily) is often referred to as the Mediterranean’s answer to the Caribbean. And there are so many amazing things to do in Sardinia.
La Maddalena Island and La Maddalena Archipelago
The La Maddalena Archipelago is one of Sardinia’s biggest gems. The waters are crystal clear and the sand bright white (and sometimes pink, although pink beaches are protected from the public).
You can catch the ferry from Santa Teresa di Gallura which takes you to the town of Bonifacio in Southern Corsica. If like me you like fitting in as many countries as possible on one trip.
