Only two of the seven islands in the Maddalena Archipelago national park, which lie off of Sardinia’s chic Costa Smeralda, are populated. Caprera carries historic significance for having hosted the freedom-fighter Garibaldi for decades upon his retirement; his “white house” today is a museum. The largest, and namesake, island Maddalena is an important sanctuary for flora such as juniper, myrtle and heather, and fauna including the endemic Audouin's gull whose numbers have nicely rebounded.
