As another exotic James Bond location for The Spy Who Loved MeSardegna was an alluring destination. The Italian island is famous for the emerald coast or in translation the Costa Smeralda. Between the north coast of Sardegna and the French island of Corsica, lies the Arcipelago di La Maddalena. The setting is spectacular with the continued emerald hues of the ocean that deepened to a royal blue surrounding the islands of granite formations that looked rugged yet smooth. As you sail in between the islets, there are many secluded beaches to be discovered. In the shallows, the water is like glass and you can observe the tiny sea life swimming around your feet.
