The Spiaggia Rosa (the Pink Beach) takes its name from the colour of the sand, rich of pieces of coral, shells and little pieces of granite. The beach and the whole island belong to the Parco Nazionale dell’Arcipelago di La Maddalena (The Archipelago of La Maddalena National Park). The Pink Beach stands in Budelli, one of the islands of the Archipelago; Budelli has an area of just 1.6 square kilometres.
Years ago the beach could be visited by tourists, but now people can only see it from the near Spiaggia del Cavaliere (Cavalryman Beach). It’s such a beautiful sight in photographs I can only dream of what it must be like in person, titillating.
