In a picturesque half-moon bay in the heart of the Emerald Coast, beloved by VIPs and paparazzi, lies one of the world’s most glamourous and exclusive beaches. Only a few kilometres from Porto Cervo, in the Arzachena territory, lies the placid Grande Pevero, named after the gulf of same name. This is an arched beach of white, soft sand, almost impalpable, approximately three hundred metres long, lapped by the changing colours of the sea, with hues that change, as in a game, from azure green to transparent on the shoreline. White smooth granite rocks and green vegetation line this beach, enclosing it into a symbolic embrace. Here you can breathe the scent of hundreds-old juniper trees. The sea is shallow and deepens gently, which makes this beach particularly suitable for children and less experienced swimmers. During relaxing walks, you can find shelter in little coves immediately adjacent to the beach.
To its back sits the Patima pond, behind which there are manicured gulf courses that make this a very popular destination among golfers. Not too far, in the centre of the gulf, separated by a promontory and sitting in a solitary, wild landscape, you will find Piccolo Pevero, less than half the size of its “big sister”, and it, too, very beautiful and popular.
From the beach, you can admire the group of islets called Li Nibani – the seagulls, in Gallura dialect – named after the birds that inhabit them. Two and a half kilometres to the south are other marvels of Porto Cervo: the beaches of Romazzino and del Principe (named after Arab prince Aga Khan, founder of the Emerald Coast), and Li Ittricceddi. At the opposite base of the emerald promontory, let yourself be amazed by another bay with four small, lovely beaches:
Cala di Volpe, Liscia Ruja, Petra Bianca and Petra Niedda. Continuing south, do not miss the small beaches of Cala Capriccioli: fine, light sand that dives into the azure see, protected by yellow, pink and reddish granite rocks. Not far from all the Emerald Coast beaches, you will find parking areas with surveillance, bars and restaurants, diving centres, paddleboat rentals, and beach equipment for rent.
