It is not difficult, however, if you are a neophyte without a licence, we suggest that you choose an inflatable boat instead of a boat. If you have a licence but not much experience in driving a boat, choose an inflatable boat that can also be driven without a licence. The more powerful and larger the boat, the more experience is needed to drive it. In general, it is always advisable to listen carefully to the initial briefing where you will be given all the information you need to spend a safe day at sea.

Sardinia has mild temperatures all year round. During the summer, we recommend that you bring a hat to protect you from the sun, a swimming costume and a towel for bathing during stops. If you wish, you can also bring a jumper depending on the time of day you choose to go on the sighting tour. If you take the sighting tour in winter bring a heavy jacket and a cap. Don't forget your camera.

The nécessaire for a perfect day at the beach includes sunglasses, swimming costume, beach towel, a hat, sun cream, pareo/sunsuit for her, t-shirt/shorts for him, a sweater/sweater for everyone. Don't forget something to drink and light food to refresh you. Often at sea during the high season there are travelling dinghies that visit all the beaches and sell drinks, ice cream and snacks.

Ask the staff to welcome you and listen to the introductory briefing. There are many places to eat in Costa Smeralda by the sea and on the beach. It can also be a good idea to bring something to eat and drink as you might get hungry while on a beautiful beach that you don't want to leave.

When sailing at sea, it is important to keep your attention high, not to get distracted and to constantly try to get your bearings, especially if you are not familiar with the area. In the areas you visit there may be shoals or outcropping rocks, be very careful, listen to the briefing and keep your eyes open. Stay away from shorelines and beach marker buoys. At sea, weather conditions can sometimes change abruptly, in which case approach the harbour or be prepared to return or call the supplier number given to you in the morning during the briefing.

The Costa Smeralda

The Costa Smeralda is a stretch of coastline in the located in the north-east of Sardinia, extending roughly from Capo Ferro to the Gulf of Cugnana between the territories of the municipalities of Arzachena and .

Some locations

Porto Cervo springs up in the Monti di Mola locality and is certainly recognised as the heart of the coast. It is a small village characterised by simple and essential architecture, developed between the 1960s and 1980s at the behest of the Aga Khan. This architecture is so distinctive that it gave rise to a veritable architectural style - the Costa Smeralda style. The flair of internationally renowned architects has shaped buildings, villas and houses that are true works of art.

Residential resorts on the coast include:

The territorial boundaries of the Costa Smeralda are well delineated, however to date we feel we can improperly include some formally excluded locations. This is because even though some areas are territorially located outside the original boundaries, tourists universally recognise them as part of the coast.


Le beaches in this stretch of sea are characterised by fine white sand, framed by an emerald-crystalline sea. It is precisely from the enchanting colour of the waters that the toponym Costa Smeralda originates.

Among the most famous beaches in Costa Smeralda are:
