The most picturesque spots in Porto Cervo

Hidden and secret corners where all the magic of the island is revealed

Hidden treasures and secret places offer an unconventional journey into the enchantment and mystery of Porto Cervo’s lesser known sites, where beauty reveals itself to the lucky few daring explorers. Porto Cervo is an exclusive and unique destination on the international scene, a place where luxury, sparkling yachts and breathtaking views can be admired alongside fascinating concealed havens, which manifest the magic of the island in all its grandeur.

The beating heart of this beloved village is the Piazzetta, which this year got a makeover. After 60 years, Smeralda Holding, together with Condominio Porto Cervo Prima Fase and in synergy with the Municipality of Arzachena, wanted to restore the former splendor to a jewel of immeasurable value beloved by travelers from all over the world. The piazzetta allows for unforgettable evenings accompanied by the Asian fusion cuisine of Novikov Porto Cervo or the delicious Mediterranean dishes and refreshing drinks of Nuna al Sole. For those who enjoy quality music and international cocktails, the Hotel Cervo Bar is the place not to be missed, while the iconic Hotel Cervo restaurant allows for a dinner with a view of exquisite delicacies.

Let us discover Porto Cervo’s most secluded and suggestive venues together, sites that will enchant and amaze even the most demanding travellers.

1. The secret beach of Cala Granu

Concealed by rocks and surrounded by lush vegetation, the Cala Granu beach is a secluded paradise known to few.
