Sardinia is the largest island in the Mediterranean, located just south of French Corsica and, until the mid-1900’s, it was for the most part unknown, until the Agha Khan started developing what is now the Costa Smeralda or Emerald Coast, a playground for the super-rich but, still it remains to this day to be discovered by American tourists and sailors.
