Classical Costa Smeralda
Take the opportunity today to explore the Emerald Coast, probably one of the most exclusive and beautiful areas of all of the Sardinian Islands. Discovered and developed by the Aga Khan in 1961, the Emerald Coast is a sanctuary where natural beauty and personal privacy are preserved, where service is still an art and where the sun shines for more than 3000 hours each year on its quiet and sandy beaches. Your guide will meet you on the pier for a brisk walk from the harbor to the coaches waiting at the upper piazzetta. Enjoy a beautiful drive from Poltu Quatu along the scenic and impressive coastline, passing lovely beaches and posh villages. The first stop is at Baia Sardinia, a new holiday resort near the Emerald Coast. After a short visit your motor coach leaves the coastline behind and heads toward one of the most beautiful areas of northern Sardinia: The hills of San Pantaleo surrounded by the impressive granite rocks of the most various forms. Passing through this small Sardinian village that provides you with a glimpse of the local lifestyle. Drive by elegant properties like the lavish Cala di Volpe Hotel, a Moorish style resort with more marble floored restaurants, bars and boutiques than a small town. See the famous Romazzino Hotel, a fantasy in white perched on a hill, draped with bougainvillea. The next stop is at Porto Cervo: There is time to stroll along the streets and squares of what is considered to be the hub of Costa Smeralda: visit the famous Piazzetta; admire the elegant shops and the charming restaurants and cafes. After a short introduction by guide, enjoy some leisure time for shopping. On your return, stop briefly to visit a local outdoor cafe for a tasting of the local vino and cheeses after which you continue the drive along the last part of the coastline that has to be seen by the visitors to complete the image of the Emerald Coast and return to your yacht.
