Warm turquoise water, soft white sand and flavourful Mediterranean cuisine are some of the highlights of a Costa Smeralda holiday. Experience its alluring, laid-back ambience and discover why Sardinia is referred to as the “Island of Longevity”.
Things to do in Emerald Coast
Spend a day under the Italian sun at the pristine beach of La Cinta, situated along Costa Smeralda’s famous coastline. Separating the Tyrrhenian Sea from a lagoon filled with pink flamingos and other exotic birds, La Cinta is a postcard-perfect beach.
For a taste of Sardinian nightlife, visit Porto Cervo, Costa Smeralda’s main shopping precinct. Brimming with luxury yachts and exclusive resorts, Porto Cervo is home to fine dining restaurants, such as Sardinian Cala di Volpe, and high-end retailers, including Harrods.
For stunning views of the island, travel to the top of Monte Mora, the highest peak along Costa Smeralda. The island of Tavolara and Caprera are visible from this granite hilltop with crystal-clear water in the coves below.
Getting around Emerald Coast
Arrive via ferry from Italy’s mainland or fly into Costa Smeralda Airport in Olbia. Driving along the coastline offers spectacular views of Costa Smeralda’s iconic beaches. Hire a car to explore the beaches at a leisurely pace.
