Spiaggia Rosa (Pink beach)

Rosa (pink) beach, on the island of Budelli, is a true natural wonder that has become the symbol of the entire La Maddalena Park. Also exalted by Michelangelo Antonioni in his 1964 movie “Red Desert”, it is one of the most beautiful beaches all over the world. An authentic naturalistic oasis where you can find peace and wild nature. The sand’s marvelous pink color is due to the shell fragments of a unicellular microorganism called Miniacina miniacea that lives among the Mediterranean tapeweed.
