An image of the small corner of sea called Cecca di Morto, between 3 islands of Maddalena archipelago, a group of islands in the Straits of Bonifacio between Corsica and north-eastern Sardinia.
The name Cecca di Morto came from old vulgar italian and means "Dead's Cove" and could refer to the period in the Middle Ages in which the North Africans and Turkish pirates used the cove as a refuge.
The cove is accessible only via two natural canals between Santa Maria, Budelli and Razzoli islands.
Is better know as the Piscine di Budelli (Budelli's swimming pool).
