Located on Isola di Spargi in the Maddalena Archipelago, Cala Granara could almost be mistaken for a tropical Tahitian beach. It’s not flanked by dramatic cliffs like many Italian beaches; instead, it’s backed by palms and lush island plants. The shallow turquoise waters are perfect for snorkeling and the silvery sand begs for sunbathers.
