Chase the sunset

Most holiday destinations offer special experiences and Porto Cervo Sardinia is no exception. Heading to Chiesa di Stella Maris to watch the sunset as it dips below the horizon is particularly memorable.

Found up on a hill, the church enjoys panoramic views over the area and attracts both locals and tourists. Don't forget to snap the building itself in all your excitement. It is a picture perfect example of Mediterranean architecture, complete with heavy white plasterwork, arches and a stunning bell tower.

Keep your eyes peeled

It might sound odd to suggest that one of the best activities during holidays to Porto Cervo Sardinia is celebrity spotting, but it really is a lot of fun. Given the overall glamour of the area, you'll naturally want to imitate the lives of the rich and famous by booking lunch in a marina restaurant. If you could rub shoulders with the likes of Bradley Cooper and Rihanna while you're there, why wouldn't you? The super yachts that moor in the area are staggering as well, so make sure your stealthy snapping skills are en point.

Unleash your inner foodie

Though Porto Cervo holidays are popular with international superstars, there are still plenty of family-friendly and affordable eateries to enjoy. Given how incredible the food is, you'll want to experience as much variety as possible. Restaurants in the marina will be pricier, but there are a host of traditional trattorias, pizzerias and cafés ready to serve up local delicacies, inspired by nearby Italy. Dedicated foodies should do their research to find out when the annual food festival will be held. A special food village is opened close to the marina for two days of sampling and cooking lessons.

Shop until you drop

Holidays in Porto Cervo and luxury shopping go together like beaches and bikinis. You'll definitely want to spend some time perusing the designer stores that overlook the marina. With high-end names such as Prada, Gucci and Armani all in situ, not to mention a branch of Harrods, you'll be spoilt for choice. If you prefer something a little less damaging to your bank account, there are plenty of charming local boutiques with friendlier price tags. Also, a number of artisan markets are just a short drive away.

Appreciate some architecture

To call Porto Cervo Sardinia pretty would be underselling the beauty of the area, as spectacular buildings line every winding street. The buildings have a classically Mediterranean design, with bright white finishes and warm terracotta tiles. The buildings are largely the work of architects Jacques Coüelle, Luigi Vietti and Michele Busiri Vici, who all made Porto Cervo their home.

Sink into the sand

Though there's far more to Porto Cervo than just sunbathing, Liscia Ruja is a particularly beautiful stretch of sand that is worth spending a few hours on. Crystal clear waters beckon you to take a dip, and the large beach guarantees a relatively undisturbed day. Stocked with everything you'll need for a day away from your hotel, there are loungers, parasols and refreshments on hand.

More than just a playground for the rich and famous, Porto Cervo is a gorgeous part of Sardinia that brings the magic of the Mediterranean to life. Perfect for everyone, including families, this luxurious location will quickly prove itself impossible to forget.
