The history of Costa Smeralda

Perhaps not many people are aware of it, but the Costa Smeralda was "conceived" by Prince Karim Agha Khan, who was in love with this area and so decided in the '60s to buy lands and create the consortium of the Costa Smeralda. The main objective of the project was to enhance and make known this small corner of paradise while preserving the territory, and without a doubt the prince has succeeded in his enterprise, turning it into an exclusive destination for elite tourism. This project has always created divison between the inhabitants of the island and many people think that in reality this area has lost its original character. Today this destination is known throughout the world, but despite the strong presence of tourists, especially in the summer season, you can enjoy the beauty of this area by renting a boat in Sardinia, an option that will allow you to make a wonderful cruise in Costa Smeralda.

Nightlife

Even if you don't like nightlife, we suggest you to visit Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo, icons of fashion and entertainment, to get an idea of the atmosphere that you can breathe in these famous tourist resorts. On the other hand, if you don not want to miss out on the wild fun in your holiday, Costa Smeralda is the destination for you.
