The enclave of Porto Cervo is located at the center of the Italian Riviera, an area sparkling with fashionable boutiques and exclusive restaurants. The region’s coves offer some of the best moorings in the Mediterranean, with warm waters and white sand beaches.
With its 60 islands and islets, the Archipelago of La Maddalena boasts some of the best beaches in the area and many places for snorkeling. Over the years, Porto Cervo has become synonymous with luxury and glamor, a famous resort capable of charming tourists from around the world. Besides being one of the great ports of the Mediterranean, it is also the home of the renowned Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, which in the summer turns into a catwalk for yachts welcoming the world’s most famous names in show business.
But there is much more. Those wanting to leave the coast to travel inland will find an ancient, rural Sardinia, home to a rich mix of architecture and culture, with medieval churches and moors painting a singular landscape.
Closer to Africa than the Italian mainland, Sardinia exudes a charm that is both tropical and European, with tree-covered mountains, citrus groves, emerald waters, and medieval villages mixed with five-star resorts – perfect for a long stop during your Mediterranean vacation.
