Costa Smeralda (the Emerald Coast) in Sardinia Island, Italy, is one of the most beautiful and famous coasts in the world.
Sardinia’s lovely northern coast, the Costa Smeralda (or “Emerald Coast”), has dramatic headlands, dreamy beaches and turquoise waters. This is the island’s best-known resort area, with a reputation for luxury and glamor. Archaeological sites include the Li Muri Giants’ graves.
Most visitors to Costa Smeralda arrive at Olbia, the closest to the mainland of Italy, reachable by ferry too from Chivitavecchia. The town is not the most idyllic along this area, although only a short distance away there are very beautiful places. So think of Olbia as an arriving destination and a point of departure for your fantastic visit to Sardinia. Drive to untouched nature, see the stunning architecture to luxurious hotels, relax in wellness centers, buy in designer boutiques or enjoy a meal in world-class restaurants. And of course, have fun with the exciting nightlife. In CarRentals.deals you’ll find the rental car that best suits your needs.

Capriccioli The beach is located 8 km far away from the well-known Cala di Volpe. This beach is effortless to get to and it is one of the most busy and favorite destination for families and tourists.
