At the south-western extremity Maddalena Island, shielded by a majestic granite cliff and a promontory crowned with the Santa Teresa Fort, is a beach graced with intense colours that takes its name from the characteristic water-worn rocks, rocks once used as roofing for houses. Punta Tegge is one of the most popular beaches of the largest island of the archipelago and faces Spargi and Porto Rafael.
This lovely beach is modest in size and connected to other, smaller, stretches of sand. Its golden sand is coarse-grained and surrounded by rocks that the wind has sculpted into gracious shapes. The water is a blue-green and the sea bed is almost immediately rocky and deep, making it a favourite of divers and underwater fishing enthusiasts.
