Cervo Marina - Costa Smeralda
Smeralda is the Queen of all Mediterranean
and Porto Cervo is its Capital.
Porto Cervo Marina is often referred to as "Porto Nuovo", the New
Port, being of a relatively more recent construction than Porto Cervo, the
"Porto Vecchio" on the other side of the harbour. The heart of
the marina is the Village, designed by the
Sardinian Architect Figus, with its piazzas, shops, newsagent, English style pub, the Lord
Nelson, supermarket etc. Close by, there is the exclusive Yacht Club Costa
organises all the regattas and the prize presentations on the main village square and then
the main pier, where the larger luxury yachts are berthed.
At the end of the Marina is the Costa Smeralda Ship-yard, where boat repairs are made.
Across the water are other beautiful condominiums, the Sestante, with boat moorings right
in front of the apartments, S'Abba Ilde and Sas Pedras, overlooking the Marina and all the
boat activity. The very pretty church of Porto Cervo, Stella Maris, is on the hill
overlooking the Marina
Porto Cervo Marina is a fascinating place, very lively and ideal for those who love
boating and a marine atmosphere. In summer there is a little ferry which takes
free of charge, to and from the Old Port. You can also stroll over, if you
prefer, on the
pretty pathway around the edge of the bay.
At the end of the Marina is the extremely well-equipped shipyard, capable of
handling very large yachts.
