Marina di Portisco – Noble Destination for Demanding Crews
Located around the beautiful Costa Smeralda (also known as the Emerald Coast to foreign tourists for the colors of the water), a renowned Yacht Charter region in Italy, the Marina Portisco sits on the north eastern tip of Sardinia, in the Gulf of Cugnana.
Apart from the lovely scenery, you’ll get the bonus of affordable prices and tranquility as not many Yacht Charter sailors know about this location. Apart from the city of Portisco, there is Olbia, 17 km to the south, from where you can catch a ferry here and also flights from Norway or England.
You won’t have trouble with approaching the marina from either direction, due to the clarity and calmness of the water that makes it safe for Yacht Charter skippers to maneuver their boats into the three arm breakwater of the marina which is also equipped with flashing beacons and lighthouses. The exact position of the marina is 41°01 N 09°31ཥE.
The Portisco marina has 589 berths as deep as 3m which allow even bigger boats to moor here. Among the other infrastructure facilities offered by this marina you can find a support berth, a slide, a crane loader with a maximum capacity of 25 tons, a travel lift with a 70 ton capacity and a pump station.
Yacht Charter crews admittance is done around the clock so you don’t have to worry about closing times, there is round the clock video surveillance, paid parking and a solid waste collection point. The marina also provides VHF radio support, a weather service and service divers during the high season from May to September.
There is no best time to come here, as the weather is always fair and there are 3 km of pristine, top of the line beaches that have been awarded with the Blue Flag. This part of Sardinia is very picturesque, and the proximity to the La Maddalena islands makes it even more worthwhile for those Yacht Charter crews that enjoy an expedition now and then.
The inside of the peninsula is characterized by rugged, granitic slopes covered in oak or cork forests that hide many antique archeological sites dating back to the Punic and Roman times. The town itself provides many restaurants, internet access, car and motorbike rentals, which is advised if you want to explore the neighboring Yacht Charter resorts of Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo.
Shops, banks, and bars can all be found close by to the marina, though some are open during the tourist season, as are the diving and the sailing school, where you can brush up on your Yacht Charter skills.
