Porto Cervo, Italy

Porto Cervo is a relatively young village considering the historical prestige of Sardinia, but it's been a playground for the rich and famous since 1960's. You needn't worry about keeping up with the celebrities however, as Porto Cervo nevertheless has the airy feel of a prestigious Mediterranean resort. The narrow hill roads and surrounding villages provide a super contrast with the more modern developments in the centre of the harbour.

Northern Sardinia is known for its beauty, and Porto Cervo is an excellent jumping off point from which to explore the wider region, with all its olive gardens, lush slopes, and secluded islets. The village was designed by Prince Karim Aga Khan, and with the help of his investors, he has turned into a quiet paradise for cruisers looking for something different.

Sightseeing in Porto Cervo

Liscia Ruja

The gulf of Cala di Volpe is a flourishing landscape that takes the greatest natural features of the Mediterranean and seems to condense them into one, breathtaking region. Liscia Ruja lies at the heart of the gulf, giving travellers the finest view of the Costa Smeralda, a glittering expanse of gently rolling seas, green hills and islets which are scattered like diamonds across the reach of the bay.

Marina Di Porto Cervo

A day at this marina will give you the essence of the spirit of Porto Cervo. There is the scenery to enjoy yes, but it's hard to resist ogling the super yachts that are constantly idling in out of the central Marina. The surrounding stores and eateries are particularly opulent, having become haunts for the super-rich, and the vastly famous. You'll be rubbing shoulders with oligarchs and Arabian royalty as you stroll along the waterfronts, but you'll all likely be doing the same thing – admiring the bright patterns of the stonework in the afternoon sunshine.

Porto Cervo Center

The main harbour is featured in countless photographs, but the interior of the town is often unfairly overlooked. This is where you can get a look at the more rustic side of Porto Cervo, which is a beautifully chaotic jumble of Greek churches, alleys, and balconies. Both locals and tourists love idling away hours exploring the quaint backstreets and hidden galleries which lay just a few streets away from icons such as the Stella Maris Church. If you were looking for a more laidback option to compete with the bustle of the busy marinas, then this will be paradise for you.

Shopping in Porto Cervo

As it's such a star magnet, the shopping in Porto Cervo is first-class, with luxury fashion designers, watchmakers, and jewellery boutiques making their homes amongst the rag tag assembly on the marinas.

Eating out in Porto Cervo

With a fabulous patio overlooking the sea, and a menu of Sardinian seafood delicacies, Clipper is a chic new entry to the roster of Porto Cervo restaurants that has grown to possess a sterling reputation with the holidaying elite. Make sure to book a table to avoid disappointment,
