Costa Smeralda Hotel Activities
Staying at a Costa Smeralda hotel means having access to a wealth of beaches, nightclubs, bars, and restaurants--most of which are clustered around the Piazza San Marco and the marina. But Costa Smeralda's main attractions are its numerous sequestered beaches. The most beautiful of these beaches are Cappriccioli, Rena Bianca, and Liscia Ruja, all of which lie south of Porto Cervo.
You'll find plenty to enjoy apart from the beaches as well. Enjoy a day of snorkeling or take a trip around the archipelago Della Maddalena from Port Palau. Shoppers can negotiate fantastic bargains from beach traders who sell jewelery, clothes, and more, while designer products and expensive items are available at Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo.
