Porto Cervo, the sophisticated "place to be" on the world-famous Costa Smeralda, is located on the north coast of Sardinia in the province of Olbia-Tempio, only about 40 km away from the regional capital Olbia with its airport and ferry port.
In the summer months, the most impressive yachts and sailing boats in the Mediterranean anchor in the harbour, as many national and international celebrities always meet here for a rendezvous. Of archaeological interest is the prehistoric tomb of the giants (Tomba dei Giganti) at Li Muri. The hinterland offers wonderful nature for excursions in hiking boots and on a bike. First-class wines grow in the area. An insider tip are excursions from Palau to the islands around La Maddalena.
