Situated along Sardinia’s north-eastern Emerald Coast is the Costa Smerelda’s glittering nominal capital of Porto Cervo. The marina is best known within the yachting industry as the host of renowned regattas such as the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta and the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, with the island’s spectacular coastline and ideal winds and waters providing the perfect conditions for competitive sailing. Despite its popularity, the 55km stretch of coastline has remained unspoilt thanks to it being acquired in 1961 by a consortium led by HH the Aga Khan in 1961 which has limited development while enhancing its many delights.
Khan knew that Costa Smerelda’s breathtaking natural beauty and fantastic cruising grounds made it an exceptional vacation spot for the international elite so he decided to add in modern comforts and facilities to accommodate the kind of crowd travelling with yachts, jets and helicopters. He also commissioned acclaimed Italian artist Luigi Vietti to design the village of Porto Cervo which still stands today as an idyllic white washed seaside town. This combination of scenic beauty and luxury style has long stood the test of time, each year welcoming charterers, sailors and celebrities to its shores.
During the high season the appeal of Porto Cervo can make it feel crowded but if you enjoy the hustle and bustle amongst the rich and beautiful at the height of summer then take to the chic beach bars and enjoy. If you’re looking for a more relaxing charter vacation, embark later in the summer when the waters are still warm but you can explore the island in relative peace. A Porto Cervo yacht charter itinerary can include a number of Italy’s most beautiful areas to include Sardinia and the Maddalena Archipelago with its vast offering of glorious beaches and opportunities for water sports.
