It is also home of the Costa Smeralda, a fashionable holiday spot with luxurious accommodations, entertainments and marinas harbouring impressive motor yachts. Names of some wonderful beaches and spots like Cala di Volpe, Porto Cervo, Porto Rotondo, Capriccioli and Baia del Principe circulate internationally among jet set and VIPs, where they gather during summer time to enliven their nights with parties.
Although Costa Smeralda is the main location, the whole area strikes you with unrivalled beauty. Rugged-edged sandy coast and crystal clear waters, hidden bays surrounded by steep cliffs and dark green vegetation. Further north the National Park of La Maddalena with its islands and islets, rare flora and fauna, is accessible only by boat from the town of Palau. Here the famous Capo d'Orso (the Bear's Rock), an imposing 120 m high granite rock that truly resembles a big bear watching out the sea.
