Sardinia: Places to Explore


La Maddalena

From the port of Palau you can visit the archipelago of La Maddalena, seven granite islands embellished with lush green scrub and wind-bent pines that belong to the Olbia-Tempio province. Car ferries make the 3-km (2-mile) trip about every half hour. A handful of sites to see include ancient Roman ruins and squares. Explore the village then head to one of several picture-postcard coves, the perfect spot to pack a picnic and rejuvenate after your journey to the region.
