Set into the mountains on the coast of Sardinia, deep in the Mediterranean Sea, rests Olbia, the island’s busiest port and gateway to the dazzling Costa Smeralda, the “Emerald Coast.” Olbia itself has lots to offer, including the 11th century Basilica of San Simplicio, the beaches of Pittulongu, Bados and Marinella, and the Piazza Regina Margherita or Piazza Matteotti for dining, drinks or a seadas (fried sweet pastry filled with soft cheese) covered with honey. But the crown jewel in the glittering Sardinian crown is Porto Cervo, the seaside resort town built by Prince Karim Aga Khan IV in the 1960s. Although renowned for world-class golf, celebrity sightings, and royalty, Porto Cervo is more than just a flashy getaway. Wander the harborside Promenade du Port and its cafés, terraces, boutiques and galleries, or visit Phi Beach, a lively open-air beach club, or simply take in the spectacular coastline and sparkling sea.
