Sardinia, Costa Smeralda.

Sardinia’s glamourous Costa Smeralda, or Emerald coast, is a hub for the rich and famous adorned with 5 star hotels, elite restaurants and bars and high-end designer shops. However, the most appealing aspect of this enchanting island is the seductive beaches, lapped by turquoise waters and backed by the ever-present aromatic scent of the “Macchia Mediterranea” (land perfumed by wild herbs such as thyme, rosemary and oregano). La Maddalena Archipelago national park, just off the coast of Sardinia is where some of the best beaches can be found. A short hop away from the gorgeous northern coastline of Sardinia is the sensational Bonifacio.

With its exotic cliff-top setting above layers of limestone carved by the strong straits winds, this place is a must see! The port is full of restaurants and bars, but you could also head up to the town itself for a more authentic experience.
