Isola di Spargi e Spargiotto...

Sea Kayaking Excursions in Sardinia...

Isola di Spargi is one of my favourite paddles in the Maddalena Archipelago and it's even better in winter when the tourist boats have gone! It makes for a very special sea kayak excursion here in Sardinia but it's a long and committing trip so we only take clients with experience of kayaking around the island.
I start the trip at the lovely beach in Palau. I'm the only person there! :)
I do however have to wait for the ferry to leave first.
I follow the coast initially,
Before heading offshore, into the serenity of the open sea.
A playground for adventure! I can see Spargi on the left, Maddalena on the right and Barrettinelli & Corcelli in the distance. Also in the area are Caprera, Budelli, Santa Maria, Razzoli and San Stefano as well as Corsica being just a short 2-3 hour paddle away! So many options for the adventurous soul.
I stop for a short rest after the crossing at Spiaggia di Cala Corsare. 

Getting back underway reveals a coastline of natural sculptures, rock gaps and a turquoise sea. It's like paddling in a holiday brochure!

I eye up Spargiotto longingly as I've not paddled there before. If you look to the left of the island you can see Bonifacio (Corsica) quite clearly. For another day :)

The Mediterranean Walrus.
A closer view of the stunning rock formations on Spargiotto. I couldn't resist going there! When George Mallory said "Because it's there" he made on of the most profound quotes in Human history, that defines us as a specie, following no logic other than our own curiosity.
Posing on the northeast of Spargi with Budelli in the distance.
Another beach, another amazing view!
I stopped at the lovely Spiaggia Cala Granara & I've not been the only animal there.
These are the footprints of a chinghiali (Wild Boar).
And these prints I suspect were a Donnola (Least Weasel).
My own footprints however, led back to the sea and were lost to Poseidon's realm as I headed back to the mainland after an exceptional day!
