Costa smeralda Beaches and surroundings
World heritage of beauty.
Arzachena is the name of the main town of the area, rich in bays and inlets. In this territory, there is a strong nuragic culture like Nuraghe and the village of La Prisgiona.
If you find yourself to be in the area, we absolutely recommend visiting Nuraghe. A unique journey through the “Nuraghe Civilization” will make you discover how Sardinia was in the ancient ages.
Of course the coast is the sharp end of the spear, and there many to choose from. To name a few: Cala di Volpe, Canniggione, Capriccioli, La Spiaggia Del Principe, Mannenne, Piccolo Pevero.
But the highlight of Costa Smeralda is definitely Porto Cervo: a jewel in the gulf of Arazachena, with its famous little square surrounded by colorful windows and balconies built in the traditional style of Gallurese.
The Stella Maris, built at the end of the sixties by the architect Michele Busiri Vici, is a small church located on hill from where you view in admiration Porto Cervo and its port.
Between the Gulfs Cugnana and Marinella you find Porto Rotondo, a wonderful location that’ll surprise you with its amazing beaches like Spiaggia Ira with its pearly sand and Spiaggia dei Sassi.
Golfo Aranci, a small village of big emotions. A strip of land in the sea that ends with the cape of Capo Figari. It’s perfect for excursions either by sea or land and a great way to admire nature. You can’t miss it!
Several archeological findings, like the Pozzo Sacro (The Sacred Well), Il Vecchio Semaforo (The Old Traffic Light – a 19th century fortress) and
the Antica Fortezza (Ancient Fortress) frame the beaches of Cala Sabina and Spiaggia Bianca.
The Costa Smeralda is defined as the land of social life. Clubs, Culinary Arts, Literature and Sports Events. Here is where you find it all.
If you love clubbing, you can choose from the famous Phi Beach, Sottovento, Ritual and many others.
If social life is what you like, this is the top!
At the end of May, fast cars are whizzing on dirt roads, between mountains and narrow roads, and you can follow them here or other places in the Gallura area.
