Enjoy a new, exclusive experience
in the stunning Costa Smeralda.

The new Waterfront Costa Smeralda luxury shopping space in Marina di Porto Cervo is offering its demanding, international and dynamic guests an unforgettable and mesmerising entertainment experience that is sure to amaze.

Gag, which collaborates with Filmmaster Events on digital communication for Waterfront, is now offering its guests a truly authentic opportunity to discover a hidden side of the Costa Smeralda through an immersive virtual reality video:

Immersive reality
to excite and amaze

The grand opening of Waterfront is on 29 June 2018, when the excitement starts for guests wearing the virtual reality goggles for the first time.

After selecting the desired language (Italian or English), the walls of the room disappear and guests suddenly find themselves suspended above Baia Sardinia. The sun has just risen and the story of an incredible day of adventure begins, with previously unseen views over wonderful landscapes thanks to the aerial footage shot by a drone and breath-taking film direction with its changes of altitude, speed and perspective.

Virtual Reality technology offers a guided travelling experience where, thanks to spatial audio, every sound effect comes from a specific point in the surrounding environment.

When the VR video starts, each guest can see the initial view of the room in the exact perspective of the location the device is matched with, for a truly realistic and engaging experience.

The virtual reality experience is available at the Waterfront Costa Smeralda POD Arzachena Turismo Smeralda Virtual Tour in Marina di Porto Cervo.
