Porto Rotondo – a luxurious fusion of yachts and idyllic beach life

Porto Rotondo is the perfect example of upmarket Sardinia. Imposing mansions owned by famous celebrities, a stylish marina and fine, sandy beaches otherwise only seen in dreams exude luxurious charm. Its elegant shops and restaurants bring a generous serving of glamorous dolce far niente. Nevertheless, authentic Sardinian cuisine is also on hand to entice with its specialities: a fishmonger offers delicacies from the sea, whilst the typical griglieria Onorio e Donatella pampers the palate with succulent pork and beef fresh from the grill. Warm summer nights are the perfect excuse to stop for a drink in one of the bars before sampling the chic nightlife in the well-known Country Club nightclub.

During the day, the area around the marina makes Porto Rotondo sparkle with its relaxed, jet-set flair and a very special architectural masterpiece – the San Lorenzo church is a veritable milestone of modern, sacral architecture. Its 22-metre high bell tower is made of pine wood and is home to four bells. At night, it is beautifully illuminated.

Everyday supplies in Porto Rotondo are covered by a supermarket, a post office and a newsagent. Those who are keen to explore the exciting area around Porto Rotondo (‘The Round Harbour’) can simply hire a sleek motorino or bike on-site. An agency also offers exciting excursions around north-eastern Sardinia.
