Guide to Portisco

A place to enjoy the luxury of your private yacht in beautiful surroundings

When you do your research on the Sardinian town of Portisco, one of the common themes you’ll find is reference to its impressive superyacht-filled port. Not only is it located on a stretch of coast that has long been revered by sailors and yachties, but its harbour and amenities ensure it can cater to its discerning visitors throughout the year.

Portisco is a small village on the northeastern coast of Sardinia within the Olbia region and what it lacks in size, it makes up for in beauty and spectacular vistas across the Mediterranean Sea. Its Marina Di Portisco, which can host 589 yachts off all types and sizes, has become a favourite destination point for yacht charters throughout the summer months. Its location between the glamorous ports of Porto Rotondo and Porto Cervo also mean that it’s a perfect stop-off to explore the surrounding areas while enjoying your West Mediterranean yacht charter.

The village has a small permanent population so is quiet and typically Mediterranean. There are a smattering of hotels, bars and restaurants serving some excellent fish dishes caught fresh that day which can keep you entertained for a few hours ashore. Its location, however, means that its beaches are what it is known for. A rocky outcrop dominates the north of the town and the white sand beaches there contrast beautifully with the rugged backdrop.

The main and busiest beach is Portisco which with its clear, shallow waters is perfect for paddling little ones. Further down Rene Bianca Beach, Razza Di Junco beach are also worth a visit while the Petra Ruja beach is great for snorkelling. Portisco is one of those yachting destinations that allows you to truly enjoy the luxury of your private yacht. The surrounding coastline offers a myriad of glamorous destinations to step ashore to but the panoramic views and comfort on board might make you never want to leave the decks. Take a look at the full selection of private crewed charter yachts in Sardinia to find the perfect one for you.
