Harbour Top Spots: Marina di Portisco, Sardinia

The summer route leads to Marina di Portisco, which welcomes guests in Covid’s free mode to ensure a sustainable holiday in freedom.

Thanks to its geographical position at the entrance to the enchanting Gulf of Cugnana, natural gateway to the Costa Smeralda in the northwest of Sardinia, Marina di Portisco is the ideal base for sailing and exploring the Maddalena archipelago as far as Corsica in the north and along the southwest coast of Sardinia as far as Tavolara. Gallura is a unique area, a corner of paradise between land and sea, offering emotions and opportunities for an unforgettable holiday.

Well sheltered by nature and protected by a three level breakwater and an angled breakwater, Marina di Portisco hosts 589 moorings for motor and sailing boats up to more than 90 metres in length in deep water and deep draught. At Marina di Portisco, environmental sustainability is a good practice based on facts. In fact, for 25 years, the facility has been awarded the Blue Flag, which is assigned every year on the basis of strict parameters dictated by the FEE (Foundation for Environmental Education). This is a real record and a recognition that certifies the concrete commitment, professionalism and sensitivity of the staff to the issues and the sustainable management of the facility, as demonstrated by the services and the various initiatives undertaken over the years.

The entire port area is strictly plastic-free, and the annual water needs are covered by a Tobago Solaris Aquae reverse osmosis desalinator, which produces more than 50,000 m3 of water per year. Numerous electric vehicle charging stations are regularly installed, as well as a new generation lighting system that allows significant energy savings. Waste collection, which is also available for vessels berthed at the port, is managed by an efficient recycling system and is part of the chain of sustainability elements contributing to the reduction of CO2 production.

Beautiful beaches in the surrounding of the port

The northwest of Sardinia is full of paradisiacal corners, large beaches and small coves that allow you to spend hours and hours in absolute tranquillity at any time of the year. In fact, even in the busiest summers, it is possible to find an exclusive space by sea or by land. Some of these beaches are located around Marina di Portisco.

Celvia, characterised by a particular coarse-grained sand mixed with multicoloured shells that contrast with the turquoise waters. Its shallow waters are ideal for snorkellers. The suggestive beach of Piccolo Pevero is characterised by fine white sand and emerald green waters, with the Li Nibani islands on the horizon, and that of Grande Pevero, a crescent-shaped strip of white sand that contrasts with the crystal-clear waters. The Spiaggia del Principe, one of the most beautiful beaches in Sardinia, owes its name to Prince Aga Khan’s supposed preference for this little corner of paradise. A large arch of sand, divided in two by a small group of granite rocks, the fine sand and the colours of the sea ranging from emerald green to turquoise, characterise it in an unforgettable way.

The beach of Liscia Ruja, one of the largest and also one of the most beautiful of the Costa Smeralda, is located between Portisco and Cala di Volpe. Its name comes from the reddish colour of the coast, due to the erosion of the granite rocks along the coastline. Long and very wide, Liscia Ruja is made up of a pleasant alternation of adjoining coves. Finally, Portisco beach, located a few hundred metres from the marina, is bordered by a rocky tongue with a white sandy coastline characterised by small outcropping rocks and a shallow seabed that makes the beach suitable for children.

A handful of miles of sailing to the north separates Marina di Portisco from the Maddalena archipelago, made up of seven main islands (La Maddalena, Caprera, Budelli, Santo Stefano, Santa Maria, Spargi and Razzoli) and several islets, all bathed by a marvellous, transparent sea. Declared a National Park in 1994, the archipelago is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and unspoilt areas of Sardinia.
