Porto San Paolo Holidays


Located on the stunning northeastern coast of Sardinia, just a short drive southeast from Olbia, lies the picturesque seaside town of Porto San Paolo. Once a haven for smugglers in the early 20th century, today this idyllic Galluran gem has transformed into a popular holiday destination, and it’s easy to see why. 

Explore the town’s charming marina, where colourful fishing boats bob on the sparkling waters, and waterfront cafés offer fresh delicacies plucked straight from the sea. Hit the water and take a boat tour to discover the enchanting Tavolara Island Marine Reserve, renowned for its crystal-clear waters, rich marine life, and underwater landscapes ideal for snorkelling and diving adventures.
This tranquil town has famously welcoming locals and is ideally positioned near the magnificent islands of Isola Molara and Isola Piana. For a taste of local culture, wander through Porto San Paolo’s spacious streets, scattered with traditional trattorias, gelaterias, and artisan shops offering handmade crafts and souvenirs to cram into your suitcase. 

Stunning beaches, like Porto Istana and Porto Taverna, are conveniently located just a stone’s throw away from the town. With their invitingly clear waters and soft, white sands, they’re perfect for soaking up the Mediterranean sun. Inflatable boats, sun loungers, and umbrellas are available to rent, so you can really make a day of it, and enjoy this little slice of paradise.
