One of the most loved symbols of the archipelago of La Maddalena, in the north-eastern extremity of Caprera, the second largest island of the archipelago and famous for having hosted the national hero Giuseppe Garibaldi in its last 26 years of life. Located in front of the Murru rock, its sand is thin with a candid color that contrasts with the blue shades of the crystal-clear sea that allow a clear view of the seabed up to over twenty meters deep. A breathtaking scenery, surrounded by rocks of pink rock and the green of the Mediterranean scrub. The beach is of modest dimensions and diving into the water you can swim among the small marine fauna that, protected in a natural reserve, will be admired in all its beauty.

The island of Budelli, with just 1.6 square kilometers of land, has a very small surface area and its highest point is represented by Monte Budello with its 87 meters of height. The island is inhabited by only one person who is also the keeper of the island. Immersed in the beautiful scenery of the La Maddalena Archipelago National Park, this naturalistic oasis is accessible only by sea. The famous Pink Beach takes its name from the typical pink color of the sand that makes it up, due to the fragments of a small microorganism called Miniacina miniacea that lives a short distance from the beach. When these microorganisms die, the shells are dragged to the shore, crumbling thanks to the erosive action of the waves and various atmospheric agents. The disfiguring action of tourists, however, over the years, has altered the beauty of the island, so that, to date, it is forbidden to moor on the island except with scheduled excursions and under the strict control of the caretaker. But a beauty that does not escape the gaze of those who choose to enjoy a boat trip, being able to admire the beauty even from the open sea.

It is thought to have been an ancient den of pirates, its name is explained here: Cala Corsara. A magical place where wild nature reigns supreme and the infinite shades of the sea, from turquoise to emerald, which contrast with the green of the insular vegetation, make it a real dream beach. Cala Corsara is a small bay on the southern coast of the Island of Spargi. The cove consists of four small beaches composed of white sand and fine as flour, with dunes, junipers, brooms, roses and sea lilies. The erosion of the wind then gave curious shapes to some rocks, such as the "witch's rock", on the western side of the cove. Fans of snorkeling or scuba diving will find here a real paradise to spend a wonderful beach holiday. A curiosity: on the shoal of Cala Corsara lies the wreck of Spargi, a Roman honorary vessel of 35 meters from the 2nd century BC
