Halfway between the famous Budoni and San Teodoro lies the beautiful Bay of Porto Ottiolu.
Considered one of the most important marinas in Sardinia, it can accommodate around 400 boats of all types.
Its name derives from the Sardinian language 'Portiolu' from which Ottiolu is derived.
Behind the various docks is the town centre with a pretty central square and various services such as restaurants, bars, offices and shops.
From this port, several boats conduct guided tours to discover the natural beauty of this part of the island, including the Tavolara and Capo Coda Cavallo marine protected area, the Maddalena Archipelago and the Gulf of Orosei.
The famous Porto Ottiolu beach has fine white sand and crystal-clear water. The shallow water and numerous facilities make this beach ideal for families with children.
A specially dedicated path also allows the disabled access to the beach in total tranquillity.
Porto Ottiolu is a must-visit destination for those wishing to spend their holidays in total relaxation, without forgoing the amenities and beauty of the beaches.
