Italy’s tiny atoll dubbed “pink paradise” and when you see the photos you’ll know why. The sand on that beach there is more precious than gold.

BUDELLI is a tiny atoll in Italy dubbed “pink paradise”. Its clear turquoise waters, lush vegetation, purple rocks and — the icing on the cake — a unique rose-colored beach makes it the pearl of the La Maddalena archipelago. A protected desert isle except for one lonely caretaker who lives there. It’s known worldwide as the “pink island” for the exceptional color shades of its sand.
Budelli’s pink sand is more precious than gold.
The atoll might be one of the most beautiful in the Mediterranean Sea, but the Italians have a saying about Budelli: It’s like a beautiful woman whom everyone desires but no one is willing to take on.
