The Elephant’s beach is a precious natural gem, hidden from prying eyes. You can reach it after a pleasant walk from La Celvia, along the cliffs and the prickly pears, or by sea in a canoe or a kayak, bobbing among the waves, spellbound by paradisiacal panoramas. The journey by sea starts from Hotel Cala di Volpe, and after paddling for half an hour through breathtaking views invisible from the mainland, you come across this extraordinary natural monument, preserved – and rightly so – with the utmost care.
It is the beach that bears the name of the founder of the Costa Smeralda, Prince Karim Aga Khan, because he wanted to build his villa on a hill behind the shoreline. The project did not go through, but everyone, from the end of the sixties, began to call it the Spiaggia del Principe. Reachable on foot, in the middle of nature, the beach is of extraordinary beauty.
The beaches of Capriccioli are four. Two face west and two face east. Those to the west have very fine white sand, those to the east have a slightly coarser and pink-colored sand. The seabed is splendid and low everywhere. The scene from the movie "007 The Spy Who Loved Me" was shot on the largest beach on the west side, in which James Bond's Lotus emerges from the water
It is one of the largest on the Costa Smeralda, with transparent bottoms and turquoise water. From the shoreline it is possible to admire the island of Mortorio, one of the most fascinating and mysterious places in Costa Smeralda. The beach can be reached very easily on foot, through the sidewalk between the Hotel Cala di Volpe hotel and the Hotel Romazzino, which overlooks the shoreline
It is one of the most beautiful and characteristic beaches of the Costa Smeralda. Inserted in the natural park of Monti Zoppu, it has crystalline seabeds and a large sandy extension. Due to its position, it is well sheltered from the winds. It is the beach at the service of the Cervo hotel, from which it can be reached by motorboat. It can also be reached on foot via the Pevero Health Trail
The word 'Pitrizza' means 'little stone' in the local dialect, which recalls the fine sand of its private beach. Overlooking Isola dei Cappuccini and one of the most tranquil and secluded bays of Costa Smeralda, the beach is just adjacent to the Club House, the Infinity Pool, restaurants and bar.
In the days of the mistral, the dominant wind, it is the most sheltered beach of the Costa Smeralda: being at the sea in the shelter is one of the great pleasures it offers. It is very extensive, has granite-pink sand and transparent bottoms. Reaching it is very simple via boat by the Hotel Cala di Volpe.
