HISTORY OF THE COSTA SMERALDA


The Costa Smeralda is a magical mix of sun, sea, music and glee that you'll find hard to resist.

Located on Sardinia's northeastern coast between the Gulfs of Arzachena and Cugnana, the Costa Smerald or Emerald Coast owes its name to its particular hue of sea and to the chromatic variations of its trasparent waters that wash up on the labyrinth of granite rocks to form enchanting scenes and panoramas.

The Costa Smeralda is synonomous with dream-like beaches, isolated coves and inlets, and gently-changing shades of blue and green sea.

This extraordinary panorama is dotted with homes hidden behind rocks shaped by the wind and Mediterranean plant life, as well as with numerous villas, golf course with 18 holes of play and touristic ports in perfect harmony with the environmental setting.

The entire coast is surrounded by fascinating places to explore: moving south from Porto Cervo, one finds Golfo del Pevero, Cala di Volpe and Punta Capriccioli, where the Islands of Motorio and Soffi (in the National Park of Maddalena)rise from across the water.

Another highly sought-out destination is that of Porto Rotondo, facing the wide, open Gulf of Cucagna and populated by lush villas, charming piazzas and the gorgeous variety that Mother Nature has so generously bestowed.
