Olbia: Costa Smeralda - 4 hours
In March 1962, a small group of international financiers, headed by Prince Karim Aga Khan, founded the Emerald Coast Consortium with the aim of developing tourism in the sites bought in the area. A series of high-quality structures were gradually created, and this, together with the beauty of the area, led Porto Cervo and the Emerald Coast to become one of the top level destinations of international exclusive tourism. The territory of Emerald Coast covers more than 80 kilometres of coastline, with a vast well-watered hinterland of rolling granite hills covered with Mediterranean vegetation and woods of wild olive trees. On the coast a number of resorts with a strong tourist vocation have been created and developed and are now internationally renowned. Porto Cervo was built from scratch and became the heart of the Emerald Coast.

After your visit to Porto Cervo continue to Baia Sardinia, one of the island’s finest beaches and on to the village of San Pantaleo, where you have opportunity to enjoy some free time at leisure, before returning to your ship.
