Porto Cervo

Harbour of marvels and desires. A world-renowned, wind-sheltered harbour and elegant village resort on a pristine stretch of Sardinia’s northeastern Gallura coastline, Porto Cervo holds many marvels, natural and designed.

The transitional blues and hues of the harbour waters entice visitors – first to explore around the village of Porto Cervo, with its captivating rustic-themed architecture and alleyways lined with boutiques and exquisite restaurants – before marvelling at the dazzling Marina di Porto Cervo, where up to 700 vessels can berth and is home to the exclusive Yacht Club Costa Smeralda.

As evening settles, celebrities mingle among gathering groups of visitors and residents, bringing with them additional twilight enchantment, as Sardinia’s sunsets yield to the deepest cerulean blue skies from where starlight emerges to dance with moonglow on softly shifting waters.

Shimmering white and rising high into the cornflower blue daytime skies above the harbour stands the Stella Maris church. This is both dazzling in hue and as an architectural achievement. The views from its delightfully achieved veranda sweep across the town and harbour of Porto Cervo. Observe too, the Yacht Club from this vantage and the spectacular vessels that lie moored or slip with silent grace through the waters around it
