Costa Smeralda Travel Guide: 18 reviews and 55 photos

My trip in Sardinia

I went to Sardinia in summer of 2001. I took the ship from Livorno to Golfo Aranci (about 8 hours), after i lived in Golfo Aranci (near Olbia) for 15 days.
I suggest, if you go in Sardinia, to absolutely visit the "Costa smeralda", a lovely group of beaches in the north-west of the island.
There are a lot of beaches (in particular, one called "Liscia ruja" near Porto Rotondo and another one called "Ca' Brandinchi" near Olbia) which have blue and esmerald colours. I think they are the most beautiful beaches of the Italy. People are calm and prices are not so high (except for PortoCervo), even if this is one of the best VIP's trip in Italy.

Me in the Water

Ok I know that I ruin this pic, but I think this could be called Paradise :-D
