It is a regular hotel with a reception and a parking… but it needs renovation. To spend a night on the small island, it’s okay.

After a short rest, we go to discover the little island next to la Maddalena: « Caprera ». A small road connects the 2 islands. We go to the 2 beaches: « Cala Serena » and « Spiaggia Cala Coticcio »

La Maddalena – Caprera 

We don’t have too much time left before nightfall, we take a look at « Cala Serena » and decide to go swimming in « Spiaggia Cala Coticcio ». We had to park 15 minutes walk away from the beach. The walk is quite easy, do not be discouraged. We arrive and discover a magnificent rocky beach. The lack of sun spoils the view a bit.

« Spiaggia Cala Coticcio »

For the evening, there is not much choice, direction the city center of Maddelena, next to the port, there is a Parking place.

To the city center of Maddelena

You can go around the lively neighborhoods quickly, it’s a small village.

Walk at la Maddalena

While having the walking tour, we choose a small restaurant : « Ristorante L’aragosta » located opposite the port: 38 Via Amendola (41°12’49.7″N 9°24’29.0″E). The prices are fair and the food is quite good.
