Cala Granu

Cala Granu is an enchanting little cove, just north of Porto Cervo and only 500 metres from the Marina, where you can easily walk down to the shops and restaurants. Cala Granu has one of the most beautiful white, sandy beaches of the area, with that transparent, emerald coloured water that gave the name to the Costa Smeralda, the “emerald” coast.

There are several excellent residential developments around the bay, designed by famous architects, such as Vietti, Couelle, Battistoni and Bonicatti, blended into the landscape with beautiful gardens and pools. These are Cala Granu, Sea Smeralda, Cala Corallina, Clala de Flores, Marina di Cala Granu and Il Poggio di Cala Granu.

On the small hill overlooking the pier we find the several complexes of apartments, in the fortunate position of having an interesting view and being within walking distance of he main piazza of Porto Cervo. These are “Case del Porto”, “Maison du Port”, “La Residenza sul Porto”, the “Capitaneria”, and higher up, “Sa Cascada”. Right on the port front is a restaurant, a bar, a “superette” and the port authority office, the Capitaneria.

There is also a small luxury hotel, Gran Hotel, which provides further services in the area, such as bar and restaurant. Here you can also make lovely walks on the promontory of Capo Ferro, to the light-house and to the village of Cala del Faro.
