Porto Cervo and the Costa Smeralda, a unique place in Sardinia
A few kilometres from Cannigione, in the Golfo of Arzachena, and facing Baja Sardinia, “gateway” to the famous Costa Smeralda, is the Resort Cala di Falco.
Costa Smeralda is the recently coined name for the stretch of coastline along the North Eastern part of Sardinia (Gallura), which was known locally in Gallurese as the “monti di mola” (millstone mountains).
If Arzachena is the administrative centre of the “Costa Smeralda”, Porto Cervo is the heart.
Everything here has been constructed with particular attention paid to a sense of elegance and the atmosphere found here is one of exclusive and jet-set highlife holidays.
The whole of the Costa Smeralda is characterized by unique holiday homes, where it is not difficult to bump into the numerous VIPs who frequent the area and its beaches and landscapes of rare beauty, like for example Cala di Volpe, Liscia Ruja and Capriccioli, to give just a few.
Many of the beaches in the area have typical pure white extremely fine sand which is reflected in the green and turquoise of the crystalline water, together with the red of the coral fragments brought to shore by the sea which give the sand incomparable pink shades and hues.
