Italy, Sardinia: Costa Smeralda and Its Wonderful Beaches

Published: 19.12.2020
When we say Costa Smeralda, probably each of us imagines an emerald coast, luxury yachts and probably the most famous resort of millionaires and the whole of Sardinia - Porto Cervo. But the Costa Smeralda is something more. It impressed us thanks to the breathtaking beaches we were able to visit and the unusual architecture.

As we approach our accommodation near Porto Cervo, we can't help but notice how everything around us is suddenly clean and tidy, stylish, as if we weren't even in Italy. We have this impression thanks to Prince Karim Aga Khan IV, who bought the area from farmers and built renowned resorts for wealthier tourists, golf courses and luxury villas. However, the new owners were not allowed to plant non-native plants, advertising was not allowed in the streets and the buildings were to be built in accordance with the surrounding landscape. Thanks to these limitations, the whole has a very natural impression. In the evening, take a walk in Porto Cervo Harbor and the famous Stella Maris Church. But beware, some parts of the port are only accessible to members of the yacht club.

The beaches in this part of Sardinia are truly magical. Prince's Beach has become our favorite. It is in the shape of a crescent moon with a shallow entrance to the sea, which has emerald shades. There is also free parking, which made us very happy. For other beaches, parking is paid. On Capriccioli we could swim with schools of fish, Grande Pevero is a windy beach, but the shades of the sea are unreal. About an hour from Porto Cerva is a beach nicknamed Italian Tahiti, is named Cala Brandinchi, and the water is so shallow you can't swim. But it is worth a visit, we met small wild pigs here, which the locals fed with potato sticks.

If you like to discover new places, be sure to visit other beaches or go inland. My secret tip for a trip is the town of Arzachena. Here you will find the Chiesa Di Santa Lucia, which is reached by colorful stairs. A short distance away is the so-called Fungo, a mushroom-shaped rock, and then you can sit in one of the cafes in the square or have a pizza in the back streets and for a few crowns.
