sardinia diary: porto cervo and porto rotondo
the shopping at porto cervo is very chi chi. all the high-end fashion houses are located in a rustic village-like shopping complex at the centre of town which also has direct access to the marina. there are lots of fancy restaurants which serve up great food with even greater views.
porto rotondo - about twenty minutes away - is the less pretentious neighbouring town but also as picturesque and romantic.
both porto rotondo and porto cervo are great for eating and shopping but the best beaches are actually tucked away in different corners all along the coast. spaggia liscia ruja is one of the most popular beaches in the area.
