After-dinner trip by coach to Porto Cervo, visit the main square La Piazzetta,
walk along the port with luxury yahcts, Promenade du Port and do some shopping.
Costa Smeralda is the area situated northwards from Olbia. Its main center is Porto Cervo with its luxury hotels, restaurants, clubs and boutiques. The best time to visit it is in the evening when all the guests come back from the beaches and meet in the town for aperitif, dinner and after that for some entertainment. Around the port where the luxury yachts anchor there is the main square La Piazzetta and the Promenade du Port. You’ll find many bars where to meet the VIP guests from all over the world – singers, politicians, film stars, football players, fashion models and many others, even if they prefer to protect their privacy. In the high season there is also Harrod’s department in the parking area of the old part of the port – situated just in front of the yachts. You can find some masterpieces and samples of various goods there. Some of them are in exposition, some others are on sale. Especially for gentlemen we recommend to visit the Promenade du Port as they will find the exposition of the recent luxury and sportive cars there.
If you don’t like shopping, after a short walk you can reach the church Stella Maris - its very particular shape and white color are very nice and a bit different from the architecture of Porto Cervo. From the nearby square you can admire the new port of Porto Cervo with the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda - it is situated in a small promontory just on the other side of the bay. Every year Yacht Club Costa Smeralda organizes many regattas starting from Porto Cervo and sailing towards the Straight od Bonifacio. Some of them are Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta, Settimana delle Bocche 52 Super Series, Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup 6, Rolex Maxi 72 World Championship and many others. The evening visit of Porto Cervo starts after dinner and finishes after midnight.
