Porto Rotondo takes its name from its natural oval or ‘O’ shaped marina bay. Situated 13kms north of Olbia, Porto Rotondo is a small port with a reputation far greater than its size. It is the only port where you can disembark and find yourself at the beachside in under a minute. The low-rise town has charming motifs encrusted onto its cobble-lit streets with cozy sit-outs to chitchat into the wee hours. Porto Rotondo is the perfect base for day escapades to the nearby beaches of Spiaggia dei Sassi and Rena Bianca.
Rena Bianca is unique in that 4 ponds join the Mediterranean at this point, neatly dividing the fine sand into 4 stretches of beach. The beach is also known for its pink corals. On a clear day, you can see as far out as the cliffs of Corsica, France. The beautiful beaches of Marinella and Ira are in close proximity so you have quite a spread of beaches to hop and skip to, if you are in the mood.
From Porto Rotondo you can hop to the nearby islands of Nibani, Mortorio, Soffi and Camere. These islands are part of the La Maddena Archipelago but far closer to Porto Rotondo. Soffi and Mortorio are known for their low-crystal waters and soft white sands but another reason to visit, is to swim in the natural pools called Soffi’s pools. Built by Mother Nature, Soffi’s pools are filled with emerald sea water and bottomed with sandy floors. There are just so many sheltered bays off these islands that it’s a nirvana for anchorage. Besides, isn’t it always nicer to wake up in a cove than in a marina dock?
