A natural masterpiece to be admired from a distance
You can admire the Pink Beach, an inestimable treasure on the island of Budelli, from ‘a safe distance’, like a work of art found in nature, accompanied by a guide from the Maddalena Archipelago Park. It is named after the colour of its sand, made of miniscule fragments of coral, granite and shells, including that of a pink micro-organism. The turquoise sea breaks on the reddish shore, with the colour and scents of the Mediterranean vegetation in the background. This treasure, unique in the world, enjoys integral protection – landing, swimming and anchoring are forbidden on the beach – and inspired Michelangelo Antonioni for scenes in ‘Red Desert’ in 1964.
