Porto Cervo The Essential
A holiday resort of international renown and haunt of the rich and famous, Porto Cervo, completed in 1962, was the first village built by the Costa Smeralda Consorzio, and remains its finest achievement. Stella Marisa, the building that symbolises the Costa Smeralda, towers over the village and its Piazzetta. This is the meeting point for all of Porto Cervo's high society and the provider of plenty of ad hoc services. There is a small lagoon at the far end of the bay next to the original marina and two beautiful beaches, Cala del Faro and Liscia Rena, the latter of which is much quieter.
