Three reasons to charter a sailboat in Portorosa
1. Marvellous marina
An attractive town brimming with charm and character, it is easy to see why this place has become such a hot spot during recent years. However, what makes this dreamy destination that little bit more special is its magnificent marina which provides easy access to beautiful white sand beaches and numerous sites of interest. 4km in length, the marina boasts a grand total of 700 berths around the inner basins which are all equipped with WIFI, toilets, showers, a laundry service, a pharmacy, water, electricity and nautical resources. From the harbour you can also reach many seaside resorts, hotels, cafes, bars and restaurants. Additionally, the abundance of shops and services to choose from means that provisioning for your sailboat charter in Portorosa is quick and easy.
What makes a sailboat charter here so fantastic is the flexibility that it gives you. For example, Portorosa marina can serve as a handy starting point for a sailboat charter around the Aeolian Islands or it can be the base for your Sicilian adventures. Furthermore, while longer passages to surrounding islands provides ample opportunity for thrilling adventure for those more experience sailors, there are equally plenty of possibilities for line-of-sight sailing in sheltered waters meaning this is an excellent choice of destination for those less confident sailors; and with a tidal range of less than 1 foot, navigating and docking your boat has never been simpler.
Don’t say you didn’t know it was coming! Italy is synonymous with its mouth-watering cuisine and tasty dishes around the globe, and Portorosa is certainly no exception to the rule. Bursting with delicious restaurants, you will undoubtedly be spoilt for choice when it comes to experiencing the local cuisine. With influences from North Africa and other neighbouring European countries, the Sicilians know how to master their flavours, balancing and marrying perfect blends of foods from numerous cultures. Why not plan your sailboat charter in Portorosa around one of the many festivals dedicated to the celebration of specific regional dishes which occur at various points throughout the year? Some of the most well-known regional dishes include: ‘pane e panelle’, or chickpea fritters, and ‘le pasta all’eoliana’, a pasta dish specific to the Aeolian islands which is made with famous Aeolian capers and olives. Our restaurant recommendations include: Gradisca, Ristorante La Plaza, Ricomincio da 3 Pizzeria Napoletana and Ristorante La Cantina Giardino D’Estate.
The beach is one of the most valued attractions in the complex; while vast blue seas attract swimmers and divers, the rugged cliffs and landscapes nearby are perfect for those who like hiking or climbing. With soft, golden sand and turquoise blue waters, the large beach is perfect for resting and relaxing away from the stresses and rhythms of daily life. As well as being only a stone’s throw away from multiple restaurants, bars and cafes, the beach also offers vast and expansive views of the Mediterranean Sea and the Aeolian islands.
Sanctuary of the Madonna di Tindari
Learn more about the area and the local culture and history by visiting this famous Sanctuary. A beautiful basilica with Greek ruins nearby, this is truly a fascinating spot. Set high up in the hills, the astounding aesthetic of the Sanctuary itself is reason enough to pay a visit but also worthy of note are the magnificent views of the surrounding beaches and landscapes from this attraction.
How to get to your sailboat charter
With two international airports, Catania and Palermo, located only 130 kms and 250 kms from the marina respectively, you will get to your sailboat charter in Portorosa within no time! Relax into your holiday with ease; this sheltered spot, which has everything you could ever need or imagine, will help you to fully unwind and slow down from the crazy pace of everyday life.
