The combination of stunning natural beauty and achingly stylish design create a timeless elegance in Porto Cervo, making the nominal capital of the Emerald Coast the ultimate elite destination. Throughout the summer stunning boats glide into the famous marina to watch and compete in numerous famous regattas, and the area really ups the ante. Filled with gleaming yachts and beautiful people, Porto Cervo comes alive with the hustle and bustle of the races, and glamorous parties that continue until dawn. Luxury boat rental is the best way to visit this world-class destination and make the most of the incredible beaches of the Maddalena Archipelago. Mingle with the rich and famous, dine at exquisite restaurants, and take your charter yacht to explore some of the most dazzlingly beautiful areas that Italy has to offer.
Key Cruising Areas: Porto Cervo is the gateway to the excellent cruising grounds of the Emerald Coast. Sail to the Maddalena to find peaceful turquoise lagoons and wild national parks. Anchor off one of the many islets then take a tender ashore for an afternoon spent relaxing on a deserted beach, perhaps with a chilled bottle of local rosé.
Don’t Miss: Sail to Cala Fuili and hike out to the Grotta del Bue Marino. A private guide can lead you through caves filled with stalactites and lakes, where shimmering light reflects to cast eerie shapes onto walls that are covered with Neolithic petroglyphs.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: In Porto Cervo you can have your pick of Michelin-starred restaurants, where you may well be seated next to a major celebrity. For an opulent evening try the degustation menu at Cipriani, in one of the most exclusive Mediterranean summer clubs.
Local Culture: The Promenade du Port is a hub of arts, food and fashion. Head here for something a little more unusual than the designer brands of the old town. Visit the museum or galleries, perhaps pick up a luxury cashmere scarf, and don’t forget to finish with a Sicilian lemon gelato from La Pasqualina.
Best Beach: The vast number of beaches on the Maddalena Archipelago offer plenty of opportunities for water sports and some of the best swimming spots of the Mediterranean. For a peaceful afternoon, head to Porto Li Coggi, completely un-signposted with breathtaking ice-blue shallow waters, perfect for snorkelling.
IYC recommends: The luxury boutiques of Porto Cervo are not to be missed. Head to the Piazzetta for some shopping, then enjoy an Aperol Spritz or Bellini and some people watching at Il Portico.
