Caprera is the second biggest island of the archipelago and is connected to its big sister (La Maddalena) by bridge. It too is part of La Maddalena National Park. Its 45 kilometers of wild and rough coastland are a paradise that welcomed (and was in turn loved) by the Italian general Giuseppe Garibaldi, who spent here the last years of his life.
Caprera, connected to the nearby La Maddalena by a panoramic bridge, boasts many lovely stretches of sand. These include the beach at Punta Rossa peninsula, Cala Andreani, and La Spiaggia del Relitto, known for its picturesque shipwreck rising out of the rocks and white sand. Capo Coticcio, also known as the “Sardinia’s Thaiti” offers a breath-taking view at sunset, when the light lends the beach a white-pinkish color that is best enjoyed while sipping an aperitif onboard your luxury charter.
Hikers and trekkers can take in picture-perfect views on the military trails on Mount Poggio Fiorito, dating back to World War II, made of pink granite, or those leading to the top of Mount Telaione.
Caprera, a paradise for sailing enthusiasts
Natural beauties are not Caprera’s only attraction. The island is also known for its sailing center, the biggest in the Mediterranean and Italy’s oldest, and for having been Giuseppe Garibaldi’s home, who lived in the famous White House, built in the style of Latin-American farmhouses, for over twenty years.
Removed from the glitzy nightlife and packed beaches of Costa Smeralda, Caprera, with its evocative landscapes and plush wild vegetation, is the perfect destination of your next luxury charter in Sardegna del Nord.
