    The Costa Smeralda... the most beautiful coastline in Italy

    Nature and untouched beaches, relaxing silence and a crystal clear sea are just some of the elements which define a holiday at the Residence Costa Ruja, in the Costa Smeralda, a place of charm and worldliness.

    A tourist region which extends for about twenty kilometres to the north-east of Sardinia, the Costa Smeralda is characterised by the presence of numerous coves, small beaches, not far from the wonderful islands of the Madddalena archipelago, as well as the Capuccini, Bisce, Li Nibani, Mortorio, Le Camere and Soffi islands. This area is known for its night-life and clubs, like the Billionaire, and famous scenes from the movies "Vacanze sulla Costa Smeralda" and "Vita Smeralda".

Costa Smeralda

From Porto Cervo to Porto Rotondo

The Costa Smeralda is a small heaven on earth, which extends for 50 km along the coast, from the Rena Bianca beach to Portisco and Pitrizza, in the town of Arzachena.

A jewel of Sardinia, the Costa Smeralda is considered the brightest diamond of the Gallura. A special place, born from the Mola Mountains, once an untouched land, with white beaches and turquoise waters, which have made millions of people who stay in this area since the '50s live a dream. The beauties of this place have made the Costa Smeralda one of the world's most famous tourists' destinations.

The Beaches

The evocative colours of Sardinia

The beaches of the Costa Smeralda are gems of rare beauty; one of the most beautiful beaches of the Costa Smeralda is Principe beach, because it is believed to be Aga Khan's favourite beach. It is renowned for the wonderful colours of the sea, the pink granite and the Mediterranean which fuse together in a unique and natural masterpiece.

While proceeding towards Olbia, you can find the Liscia Ruja beach, sheltered from the wind by the Romazzino peninsula and Petra Ruja, the wildest beach of the Costa Smeralda, from which you can see the islands of Mortorio, Soffi and Camere (La Maddalena archipelago).

The second most important centre is Porto Rotondo, which is closest to the white sand beach of Rena Bianca, in the southest side of the Costa Smeralda. Also the Marinella and Ira beaches are among the most beautiful of the Gallura, and are worth a visit at least once during your holiday in Sardinia.

Porto Cervo

Unmistakable style

The style of the Costa Smeralda is distinctive. Rounded shapes, natural materials and light colours, the granite and an uncontamined sea... the luxury recreates the atmosphere which inspired those who redesigned this area fifty years ago.

One of the most important architectural structures of the Costa Smeralda is the Stella Maris church in Porto Cervo, an example of modern architecture by Busiri Vici, entirely built with local materials. A wonderful greenish granite flooring and juniper wood benches.

Small towns by the sea, exclusive market places and small alleys are still marked by the passage of international jet sets and VIPs, who frequently visit these unique places of the Costa Smeralda and the boutiques of Porto Cervo.

The regatta

Porto Cervo and its regattas

Porto Cervo and its regattas - Already back in 1975, the Daily Telegraph in Sidney described the regatta area of Porto Cervo a "Sailing paradise". From that moment of, many boats have raced in the splendid and clean waters of the Costa Smeralda and the La Maddalena archipelago. Each year from May to September, the best teams in the world challenge each other here. The Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta and the Audi Settimana delle Bocche, are just some of the races which take place here during the summer in northern Sardinia.
