Discovering Costa Smeralda and gems of north-east coast of Sardinia

The Costa Smeralda is Sardinia’s most glamorous and exclusive vacation resort. Its worldwide popularity is due to the magical emerald blue of its water but also to luxury hotels and villas, exclusive boutiques and fine dining.

The Costa Smeralda is located in Gallura, in Sardinia's northeastern coast between the Gulfs of Arzachena and Cugnana. The outstandingly beautiful area was chosen by the Aga Khan in the Seventies for the chromatic variations of jagged coastline made by bays of white sand and turquoise sea, sheltered by rocky headlands. Villages in the area show off also a characteristic gracious architecture: small, low, white buildings with soft lines that blend in beautifully with the surrounding Mediterranean vegetation.

Costa Smeralda main location is the glitzy and colorful Porto Cervo, a heaven for the international jet-set and spot for oversized yachts, golf clubs, private jet and helicopter services. With exclusive hotels and other luxury services the area draws celebrities, business leaders, and many other visitors from all around the world.

Top sought-out destinations in this luxury area are Porto Rotondo, Cala di Volpe, Liscia di Vacca, Capriccioli, and Romazzino just to name a few.

When here it is a must to experience the coast of the Maddalena Archipelago National Park, a priceless natural treasure of the area with its seven main islands and numerous small islets. The best way to enjoy the Archipelago is cruising it and an ideal excursion among these islands is with a rubber boat which can take you easily from one bay to another and let you enjoy all the shades of blue of these stunning beaches. Among the impressive beaches and islands you can visit there are: Mortorio, Soffi, Spargi, Cala Corsara, Caprera, Giardinelli, Cala Coticcio, and Budelli, a rare beauty with its pink beach.

One of the boat tours you can take from the Costa Smeralda is to the Tavolara and Punta Coda Cavallo, further south in the east coast. Here you can visit the sublime natural pools of Molara, pools of clear, turquoise water you can enjoy with a dip in the water or doing some snorkeling. In this excursion, you can also visit another unmissable attraction in the area called Cala Brandinchi, also known as the Sardinian Tahiti for it white shore with water that resembles a tropical paradise.
