Sardinia, La Maddalena Islands
Nestled off the Costa Smeralda, the archipelago of La Maddalena is a haven of tranquillity, boasting turquoise lagoons, uninhabited islands, and pristine beaches to rival those of the tropics.
Not the Mediterranean as you know it; the Maddalena Islands are a more remote, Caribbean-like setting. Found between Sardinia and Corsica, this cluster of seven large islands and 55 tiny islets play host to some of the most breath-taking beaches in Italy, some with barely a footprint to spoil them.
The main island, La Maddalena, is a strategic base for sailing along Sardinia’s Northern coast to Santa Teresa di Gallura or venturing further south to Olbia or the fashionable Porto Cervo, Portisco, and Porto Rotondo.
Between lazy beach days and exploring uninhabited islands, visit the town of La Maddalena itself. Shaped not only by its connection to Italy but also by centuries of history, culture, and tradition, it holds a unique status that adds an intriguing layer to its allure. From Napoleon's failed siege to Admiral Nelson's encounters off the coast, here, history comes to life.
With a captivating past, friendly locals, charming waterside trattorias, and shimmering Mediterranean waters, the La Maddalena archipelago promises an idyllic honeymoon escape.
Which Yacht to Charter?

When to go?
As a nature reserve with restrictions on the number of yachts allowed to anchor in protected waters, visiting in peak season can be challenging. Still warm but less crowded: June or September are perfect.
If untouched beaches, turquoise bays, and warm island breezes are some of your honeymoon must-haves, then a yacht charter in the Bahamas should be high on the list for your first post-nuptial trip.
Immerse yourself in the laid-back ambiance and breathtaking landscapes, complemented by the warm hospitality of the locals, crafting an idyllic setting for your romantic escape. Whether you seek endless days of beachside relaxation, immersive cultural experiences, or thrilling outdoor adventures, these beautiful islands offer an ideal honeymoon for couples who crave white sands and deep tans.
While sipping tropical drinks by the beach is an enticing option, the Bahamas presents a plethora of fun and romantic activities, both on and off the shoreline. Dive into the vibrant ambiance of bustling Nassau, uncover the secluded beaches of Harbour Island, and set out on extraordinary encounters with the local wildlife.
Swim with the playful dolphins or embark on a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience — swimming with pigs on the shores of Big Major Cay, an enchanting corner of the Exumas. Sunbathe with the iguanas at Allen's Cay, share the water with gentle nurse sharks at Compass Cay, and snorkel over the fish fringed coral at Thunderball Grotto.
Whether you're an all-out foodie looking for the best of Bahamian fine dining, or just want to pencil in a few romantic dinners, seafood takes centre stage, with rock lobster, conch salad, and jerk fish sandwiches all local delicacies. While non-seafood delights include Bahamian mac and cheese, grilled pork chops with peas and rice, and guava duff.
From the cosmopolitan allure of New Providence Island and Nassau to the remote bays and coves of the Abacos, the Bahamas caters to all tastes. Discover charming restaurants, stylish bars, world-class golf courses, and boutique shopping on the larger islands, while the smaller, unspoiled isles offer unparalleled luxuries that money can't buy. On a private yacht charter embrace the perfect blend of both worlds, allowing yourself to savour the diverse treasures of this tropical paradise.
