Amazing Sardinia, a must visit for everyone. From the port town of Olbia to the tip of Capo de Testa some of the world’s most beautiful beaches are set in craggy coves washed by a sea so green and clear that it’s known to the world as the Costa Smeralda, the Emerald Coast. The comparison with one of the most expensive jewels might also apply to the clientele that has frequented the coast since it was developed by the Aga Khan in the 1960s into a series of resorts for the uber-wealthy. Cosseted resort “villages’ are built to resemble Greek islands and the Riviera. The center of all this is Porto Cervo, a resort village and marina for private yachts built in the 1960s. Apart from people-watching, its only attraction for those not booked into a resort there is MdM, a stylish modern art museum with changing exhibits and a terrace caf? overlooking Porto Cervo. The most modest resort town in the region is lively little Cannigione, on the Gulf of Arzachena.
