World renown Porto Cervo is a unique hide away for some of the most exclusive Jet set. In the late 50s Prince Karim Aga Khan happened to be visiting that coastline and was so captivated by it that he decided to purchase its fabulous 55 kilometers of coastline. He established the Consorzio of the Costa Smeralda in 1962 and developed the luxury resort with a vision to build around nature, rather than across it.

The imagination of his architects complemented the majesty of the landscape.

The villas and hotels formed artistic statements in their own right, and became a magnet for the jet set crowds from all over the world.
The recently re-built yacht club is no doubt the most beautiful, as arguably the most important in the Mediterranean. The coast offers a necklace of the most idyllic beaches, of very fine white sand and lapped by the iridescent waters of emerald from where the area takes its name.


In contrast, there are major international events such as the Swan Cup, the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, the Costa Smeralda Offshore Powerboat Grand Prix, car rallies, golf tournaments, gastronomy and fashion parades, shows featuring the giants of music, jewelry and ceramics exhibitions, from Easter to November... and Sardinia has it all. The climate reveals virtually no rain from May to October.

The warm sea has a remarkable 42 yards of underwater visibility.
