This movie is a masterpiece in the 007 series of James Bond’s adventures. Filmed in Costa Smeralda – Emerald Coast, is probably the best one for locations and places filmed.
Here some of the places shown:
– The road chase is on a stretch of coast road at Vista Point, on the SP94 about a mile south of the hotel, and on the small piazza of San Pantaleo, to the southwest. Bond’s submersible Lotus Esprit finally comes ashore on the beach , on the coast near Hotel Pitrizza.
– Though you might not arrive there in a Lotus Esprit S1, you can also visit the Hotel Pitrizza. It offers a perfect view of the pier that saw Bond’s car transform into a submarine after plunging over its edge
– Cala di Volpe Hotel: Lying on the most strikingly romantic stretch of the Costa Smeralda, the hotel resembles a charming fishing village, with its picturesque Sardinian houses and landing stage jutting out into a sea of translucent turquoise, emerald green and deepest azure. James Bond’s room actually is the hotel’s Pontile Piano Bar doubled as their passion pit in the film.
– Capriccioli beach inspires one of the most iconic scene not only of the film, but of the whole cinema saga of James Bond: that where the white Lotus Esprit S1 is seen to resurface from the sea which is able to turn into a submarine.

How to get the best of your journey:
– Choose your hotel wisely; there various type and options according to your budget and how you intend to spend your holiday.
– Beaches: some are best to be seen in the morning and others offer a wonderful sunset scenery. Be sure not to miss: Principe Beach, Liscia Ruja and Rena Bianca.
– Excursions: Emerald Coast is only 1 hour far from Corse (France) so itineraries can be prepared to make you discovery the beauties of these two islands.
La Maddalena and Caprera are only 30 minutes far and boat excursions are available to spend a day exploring different beaches and snorkeling or diving.
– Porto Cervo, Baia Sardinia and Porto Rotondo are well known for very elegant and expensive restaurants and discos. Many actors and celebrities arrive on their yachts and make parties all night long with music and lights that can be seen from the villages on the coast.
This is the most exclusive part of Sardinia but it’s not the only you may wish to visit. Sardinia can be called the European Caribbean for the incredible blue waters and the white sands spread all over the coast. Some of the most beautiful ones are: Villasimius, Chia, Is Arutas and Cala Brandinchi (my favourite one ). This last one is called Tahiti and it’s really a Polynesian dream.
