The 15 prettiest islands in Italy
This a one-mile-long islet in La Maddalena Archipelago National Park is almost uninhabited. The island’s lone resident, caretaker Mauro Morandi, has lived here for more than 30 years, protecting its delicate ecosystem. It’s possible to visit by day on a boat trip – Budelli’s most famous beach, Spiaggia Rosa, is closed to visitors, but there are countless other coves to explore, and most boats will get close enough to Spiaggia Rosa for you to see its unusual pink sands.
Where to stay: You can’t stay on Budelli – your boat trip will take you back to Sardinia for the night.
Getting there: Boats leave from the port of Palau.
