The North East - To See & Do

Many visitors find it difficult to tear themselves away from the beautiful beaches that so generously grace the coast, yet there is so much more to this region.

Home to one of Europe’s most exclusive resorts - the Costa Smeralda, with a long stretch of white powder-sand beaches, crystal clear water and chic, expensive resorts. The North East of the island is not all glitz and glamour... Away from the coast, the lush macchia and granite covered hillsides spill down to traditional market towns and hidden coves.
