Anchoring in the La Maddalena archipelago

In a few weeks I will be for the first time visiting the La Maddalena archipelago in Sardinia and after having looked at the official rules here it seems you're only allowed to anchor there in the MB zone between sunrise and sunset during high season.

Am I right? Is that something that is enforced? The MB zone reaches 300 meters from the shore, is it viable to anchor outside the MB zone?

Anything else I should know about the archipelago before heading there?

Thankful for any tips!

Re: Anchoring in the La Maddalena archipelago

We are presently anchored just outside the Maddalena archipelago. It gets very crowded July through the end of August and there are no free anchorages within the nation park. You must pay and obtain a permit. The best deal is to head into town and purchase a weekly or monthly permit which brings the cost down significantly. Instead of paying nearly 100 euros per night, the extended permit for sailboats is reduced to maybe 20 euros per night. But we've found the best anchorages in the area are uncrowded and free and just outside the national park.

You won't even be able to drop your anchor within the park for 15 minutes before an official will approach and start filling out the billing information which will cost around 100 euros per night if you dont already have a permit. They are very nice about it, but you will only have about 10 minutes to be out of there if you don't plan on paying.

If you're looking for free anchorages, please PM me and I'll give you a list of our favorites.

Re: Anchoring in the La Maddalena archipelago

Hi Ken,

IŽd like to know your recomended anchoring places. If youŽd be so nice sen it to me by email

Any advise is welcome. Our plans are from Portisco north to Alghero, than west part of Corsica towards Bonifacio and back to Portico.
