Villa Portobello Landscape

Portobello di Gallura is an oasis of peace and relaxation with a laid-back atmosphere and an authentic pace of life. Portobello's coastline is diverse and offers a mixture of majestic rocky cliffs, secluded coves and small sandy beaches. High granite formations add drama to the landscape, while the lush Mediterranean vegetation provides a vivid contrast to the azure waters of the sea.

The beautiful natural park of Portobello extends over 100 hectares and consists exclusively of luxurious villas, all elegantly built with natural materials and surrounded by lush Mediterranean macchia that slopes gently down to the sea, offering breathtaking views and unforgettable sunsets. Just 2 kilometres away lies the bay of Vignola Mare, known as a first-class destination for kiters and windsurfers.

Beaches around Portobello

Most of the beaches are private and within a convenient walking distance from the villas. Santa Teresa Di Gallura with its famous white sand beach reina Majore is only a twenty minute drive away.

Portobello’s beach on the north-west coast of Sardinia is something truly special: red, grainy sand is framed by rugged, rocky reefs and crystal-clear water. Not far from here, the endless dream beaches of Cala Vignola stretch 25 kilometres all the way to Capo Testa. Portobello’s beach on the north-west coast of Sardinia is truly special: red, grainy sand is framed by rugged, rocky reefs and crystal-clear water. Not far from here, the endless dream beaches of Cala Vignola stretch 25 kilometres all the way to Capo Testa. The rugged beauty of this area of the coast captivates with its serenity and the unbridled power of nature. The many rocky reefs are ideal for snorkelling and diving, making Portobello the perfect starting point for diving trips. Even dolphins pop up along the gorgeous coastal strip above Costa Paradiso. Portobello itself isn’t a town, but rather an exclusive, ecological villa estate, although Portobello beach is free to everyone. 

Spiaggia  Cala Vignola

Cala Vignola enchants water lovers and sun worshippers alike with light red sand, crystal-clear water and fascinating rocky reeds. This is another favourite place for divers and snorkellers, and the flat shore also makes it ideal for families with children. Kitesurfers and windsurfers will find favourable wind conditions here, too. This beach is extremely popular in summer and offers a good infrastructure. There is a car park 50 metres from the beach.

Spiaggia di Cala Spinosa

A little dream. Cala Spinosa is located on the Capo Testa peninsula. Surrounded by maquis shrubland, the picturesque bay is a real treat for the eyes and paradise for snorkellers. The bay is on the right, almost at the end of the Via Capo Testa, and can only be reached after a considerably challenging climb – although it’s worth it in the end!

Spiaggia di Cala Sarraina

Approximately 200 meters long, nestled within a natural amphitheater adorned with hues of red from trachytic rocks and greens from the encircling Mediterranean flora, lies Cala Sarraina. Its sands boast a kaleidoscope of colors - ranging from pink, to red, to orange - while its waters shimmer in shades of blue with hints of emerald green. This picturesque scene resembles a masterpiece crafted by an inspired impressionist painter. Yet, in reality, it is the breathtaking landscape of Cala Sarraina, situated within the Costa Rossa, the westernmost coastal expanse of Gallura. Just a stone's throw away from Costa Paradiso, within the jurisdiction of Trinità d'Agultu and Vignola.

Santa Teresa di Gallura

Just 30 minutes by car from Porto Rafael you will find the picturesque little town of Santa Teresa di Gallura with its marvellous white sand beach called Reine Bianca. The beach features a small beach bar with a breathtaking view of the Archipelago de la Maddalena. In the harbour town of Santa Teresa, delicious ice cream parlours, fish restaurants, cafés and bars invite you to relax and wander around.


The power place Capo Testa can be reached in 10 minutes from Santa Teresa. A natural spectacle of wind-carved granite rocks and crystal-clear water with a view of the chalk cliffs of Corsica that will invite you into deep inner meditation. The beaches of Capo Testa are located on both sides of this beautiful peninsula and are among the absolute highlights of Sardinia. Martini Beach Bar and Sea Lounge invite you to spend a relaxing time here.
