Islands

Located in the northern region of Sardinia, La Maddalena is the largest town in the Maddalena archipelago, the group of islands just off the north-east of Sardinia. The only way to travel to La Maddalena is by boat, with car ferries travelling from nearby Palau and also from the Italian mainland.

This is an island that is well known for its beaches. The Cala Francese is one of the most popular beaches on the island, which is why it gets very busy on the weekends and during summer months as the water is clear and the beach is clean. Another popular beach is Bassa Trinita, a beach that, although gets busy during high tourist seasons, is perfect for an afternoon stroll or picnic.

The Piazza Umberto I is the main point of interest as it is in the centre of town. It used to called the Piazza Rossa so don’t be surprised if people of an older generation call it by that name. This is probably the busiest part of the town as many people will meet up here to chat or use it as a meet up point before moving on to their next destination. It’s an easy to get to point so maybe if you’re wondering where to stay in the island, don’t worry, as they have some of the best Sardinia villas in the region.

The island is connected to another island, Caprera, by a 600 metre causeway. This is another popular tourist destination as it is a natural reserve which is home to some rare sea birds. Here you can see the royal seagull, cormorant and peregrine falcon. The island had ties to one of the men who fought for Italy’s independence, Giuseppe Garibaldi. He bought the island in 1885 and lived there until he died in 1882. Now his home has been converted into a museum and a memorial chapel, in fact the island itself is a national monument. The island got it’s name for the numerous amount of goats that inhabit it, as ‘capra’ is Italian for goat.  But the island was originally inhabited before a group of shepherds inhabited it; it was Garibaldi who planted the pine wood trees you see on the island today.

Theses island sits on the Strait of Bonifacio, which is a strait that lies in between Corsica and Sardinia. This was named after a Corsican town Bonifacio. This strait is well known among sailors for its weather, currents, shoals and other types of difficult obstacles. There is a famous disaster that happened in the Strait of Bonifacio. On February 15, 1855 a French ship called Sémillante left the port of Toulon on its way to the black sea to supply the Crimean War with troops. But a storm caused it to hit a reef which led to the ship to sink and all of the soldiers on board drowning to death. In 1993 there was a tanker disaster which led to only French and Italian flag ships with dangerous goods allowed passage through the Strait of Bonifacio.

There are an endless amount of US Virgin Islands vacations that can be planned so it helps to narrow down the possibilities to a few things that you can really enjoy. First choose from one or more of the three islands that comprise the territory. These are St. Croix, St. Thomas, and St John. All US Virgin Islands will allow for a wide array of popular activities such as hiking, diving, fishing, kayaking, golfing, and snorkeling. Still, you can make things easier on yourself by choosing which island to visit first and what spots to come back for on your next vacations.

To narrow down your choices of Islands, consider that St Croix is the biggest of the U.S. Virgin Islands. It is located about 40 miles south of the other islands and is a great spot for people interested in the diversity of Mother Nature. On the south side is a fertile plain where sugar was the main agricultural product and this has become the signature spot on St. Croix, giving it the nickname “Garden of the Antilles”. Some amazing Danish colonial architecture and a wide array of activities makes St. Croix an island that is big enough to satisfy any number of vacations.
The two smaller islands to visit on your vacation are St. John and St. Thomas. St. John is also known as the “Wild Virgin” and is the smallest of the U.S. Virgin Islands. It has a National Park that encompasses two-thirds of the entire island.

The steep slopes of Bordeaux Mountain and all of the beautiful flora and fauna are a big attraction on St. John. Throw in the 40 world renowned beaches and you may end up visiting here for every one of your US Virgin Islands vacations. Of course, St. Thomas often attracts visitors as well because of its mountainous terrain and the historic port town of Charlotte Amalie. Enjoy lots of hiking, snorkeling, diving, and fishing on any of the three main islands and you will know you have planned one of the best vacations possible.

If you are looking for a tropical destination to visit this summer, consider the South Pacific as one of your first options. This is very well known for its beautiful scenery along white and sandy beaches, special Polynesian and tiki culture, historical spots that date back to World World II, as well as volcanoes and coral reefs. It also has thousands of tropical islands, which makes it one of the most visited holiday places.

 

Though hundreds of islands in the South Pacific are so tiny that they do not have any permanent residents, many more have an active community supporting tourists who flock to the islands all year long. Some of the well-known destinations in the South Pacific are Fiji, Vanuatu, Micronesia, French Polynesia, and the Cook Islands. With so many destinations to choose from in this part of the world, you’re sure to find exactly the vacation you are after, but how do you choose just one island to visit?

 

If you are seeking an adventurous vacation, check out Fiji. This island nation is comprised of more than 300 separate islands, many of which are uninhabited. Look towards the western islands for adventure, including the islands of Fiji and Kadavu if you’re are a diver. Looking for the best hike? Head towards the Nausori Highlands or the Bouma National Heritage Park.

 

Those seeking romance often prefer French Polynesia, especially Tahiti. These islands are known for their lavish resorts perched right on the ocean. Many of the attractions here, including fancy spas and sailing expeditions, are designed especially for couples. Though these islands are some of the most expensive in the South Pacific, they are also some of the most romantic.

 

Looking for something that’s a bit unusual? If you want to get away from the usual tourist hotspots, check out Vanuato and Micronesia. Both are known for their phenomenal ocean views, but aren’t as well-trekked by tourists as some of the other islands in the South Pacific. If you enjoy diving or snorkeling, Vanuatu is home to coral reefs, underwater visibility approaching fifty meters, and an array of World War II-era wrecks submerged in the seawater. Micronesia is also known for spectacular diving and underwater wrecks. Above the ocean, visit the ruins of Nan Madol in Pohnpei, dating back to the 13th century.

 

Even further off the beaten path, visit the Cook Islands. This island nation is famous for its woodcarving. Here, each island is known for its unique crafts and distinctive culture.

 

If you’re looking for a breathtaking tropical getaway, you can’t beat the variety of vacation destinations offered by the South Pacific. On any of these islands, you’ll find some of the best beaches on the planet, not to mention a rich cultural history stretching back hundreds of years. Watch a tiki show or sample the traditional foods and crafts. Spend a long day relaxing in the sun, or take your time learning about the Polynesian history of the islands. Each island of the South Pacific has its own flavor and history, but you can’t go wrong with any of them- the best tropical islands are found in this part of the world.
