Costa Smeralda

Costa Smeralda

A journey deep in the beautiful landscapes shaped by the winds. Costa Smeralda is well known all over the world for the emerald sea, the beach clubs and the high-level services available for all types of tourism. It is surely the most exclusive area of North-East Sardinia.
Five stars Hotels, Luxurious villas, up-town lifestyle, high fashion boutiques, sunsets’ aperitifs in front of the sea and exclusive parties: simply the most glamorous place in Sardinia able to create a perfect mix of relax and entertainment. La Costa Smeralda was born from the consortium founded by the Ishmaelite prince Karim Aga Khan in 1962, and invites you to enjoy the fine cuisine, great shopping and the suave and luxurious lifestyle into the heart of Porto Cervo, between Golfo Pevero, Pantogia and Capriccioli.
The Costa Smeralda’s fame is due in large part also to some of its invaluable nearby natural attractions, like Cala di Volpe, an exclusive natural port where some scenes for the James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me were filmed. Other celebrated places are Grande Pevero, Liscia di Vacca, surrounded by Mediterranean brush and blessed with turquoise waters, Liscia Ruja, with its inlets framed by fragrant juniper bushes, Romazzino, with its transparent sea and white beaches, and Pitrizza.
The lovely bays with white sails draw your eyes to beaches and small islands, like the isola dei Cappuccini, Bisce island, south of Caprera, Li Nibani, Mortorio island, the little delle Camere islands and isola di Soffi. Along the coast is the Bottlenose Dolphin Research Institute, an international institute set up to study and safeguard these special dolphins.
The surrounding area welcomes a variety of interesting archaeological sites like the Li Muri necropolis (in the Arzachena area) that dates to the middle of the IV century BCE, the Nuragic complexes of Malchittu and of Albucciu, which feature nuraghe, giant tombs, hut villages and the giant Coddu Vecchiu tomb.
