Our beloved Northeast coast of Sardinia, prime destination for international luxury tourism and popular with young vacationers, is famous for both its white beaches and hidden coves alternating with exclusive resorts.
The beaches of the Emerald Coast are considered the most beautiful in northern Sardinia. Getting away from the main tourist centers and venturing to sea access beaches will allow you to discover pockets of Paradise unrivaled in the entire Mediterranean.
Upon starting your vacation in Northern Sardinia, you should not miss the bay of Cala Volpe – known as the harbor of some of the largest yachts in the world – Principe Beach, the Gulf of Pevero, and the islands of Mortorio and Soffi.
For nightlife lovers, we can surely recommend sticking around Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo, the temples of summer fashion and entertainment.
The 12-hectare Mortorio island is located between Porto Rotondo and Porto Cervo. It can only be reached by boat.
This wonderful floating spot on the sea is completely uninhabited, as it is part of the Maddalena Archipelago National Park: it is an unspoiled and protected island with restrictions that forbid building on it.
Its beautiful beaches, breathtaking cliffs and lush vegetation can only be admired from a distance: boat docking and landing are, in fact, prohibited and subject to strict controls by the forestry and environmental supervision corps.
Prince’s Beach is part of the municipality of Arzachena.
The white sand beach, with its distinctive curved shape that opens onto an area of especially clear, turquoise water, is surrounded by dense Mediterranean vegetation and is divided in two by a small granite promontory.
The beach is free and offers sunbed and umbrella rentals in the small beach facility, which also features a bar.
The beach, which used to be called “Poltu di li Cogghj” (“Port of the Pelts”), owes its name to the design of Prince Aga Khan’s villa that was to be built next to the beach – which, however, was never built.
Nowadays, the beach is a place of great scenic charm, with the intense scents of the Mediterranean bush and crystal-clear sea making it very popular among tourists.
Cala di Volpe is one of the most exclusive natural jewels of the Emerald Coast.
It consists of four beaches surrounded by thick Mediterranean vegetation and granite rocks: Liscia Ruja, Petra Bianca, Petra Niedda and Cala di Volpe, accessible only by walking along the rocks or swimming after a dip from the boat.
Most of the area is given under concession, with free stretches of beach offering striking color gradients between green hills, golden sand, and the green and blue tints of the sea.
The bay is famous for being the scene of yacht gatherings and the world’s most luxurious boats, especially during the peak season of July and August.
Porto Rotondo is situated in an enchanting inlet nestled between three small peninsulas: Punta Nuraghe, Punta Volpe and Punta Lada.
The beaches of Porto Rotondo are a major attraction for tourists: Punta Nuraghe, Sassi, Shirley Bassey, Punta Asfodelo, Ira and the great Marinella are just some of the must-see ones.
In addition to the beauty of the place, Porto Rotondo’s great fortune lies in the excellent quality of accommodations and the convenience of the port.
Exploring the area around Porto Rotondo is a definite highlight for nature and sea lovers: the beaches of Golfo Aranci are easily accessible and offer additional options for enjoying the emerald sea and the unspoiled nature of the area.
A natural, evocative environment where the beauty of the coast blends with high-quality hospitality. This is Porto Rotondo.
A part of the municipality of Arzachena, Porto Cervo is the best-known spot on the Emerald Coast, famous for its natural deer-shaped harbor that hosts numerous yachts and luxury boats.
The marina, built in the 1980s, is one of the most modern and well-equipped facilities in the Mediterranean, with more than 700 dock berths.
Renowned for its high level of its facilities, from restaurants to nightclubs to boutiques of the most renowned luxury brands, Porto Cervo is the beating heart of the Coast. Since the 1980s, it has become a regular getaway destination for VIPs and celebrities from the international jet set.
The surrounding area offers breathtaking beaches such as Portisco, Cala Granu, and Pevero beach: fine sand and crystal clear water are the ingredients that make this corner of the world a real paradise on Earth.
