Owner description: Outdoor Portofino deals with ecotourism and outdoor activities related to the sea. The idea is to give everyone the chance to appreciate the beauty of Portofino Marine Park in the best possible way: paddling, rowing and sailing!AIM:Our goal is to give everyone the chance to discover the secrets of this preserved area. On board of kayaks or small sailing and rowing boats we give the opportunity to reach and see hidden and otherwise inaccessible natural paradises that behold the most colorful and genuine secrets of the ligurian coast sea vegetation. Guided by marine biologists and local experts in off-track excursion, all of our staff assures not only the best company and highest quality of sea sports instruction and guiding, but the chance to come in contact with the most peculiar and traditional aspects of this small and rich natural sanctuary and its costumes.With a bit of ambition and firmly believing in eco-tourism’s power, we want to provide the opportunity for those who visit these beautiful places to do it in the best way possible!We are also involved in carrying on a scientific environmental project.

Very lovely and cozy port. Excellent for a romantic walk or a walk with the family and some gelato. I went there first with a car and then on a bike at 7:00AM...the best time to see the sunrise and the port in it true beauty

“Very fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

This was a very fun day, maybe my favorite in the area. We drove the windy streets to Portofino and parked in a parking garage. We then walked to the town stopping at a cafe along the way (not a long walk, 3 minutes?). There are a few great little stores for shopping, and lots of restaurants. The water/marina area is fun to sit around and have some gelato or people watch. We did walk up the hill to Castello Brown as well, which is a beautiful walk to do with breathtaking views! We later had dinner at O Magazin, which was delicious. If you have time, go and enjoy the town, do the hill and then come back down for some wine and a delicous dinner out by the water!

“what a beautiful bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

The ferry takes you from santa margharita to portofino and you cannot fail to be impressed by this stunning little bay. so simple and nice to stroll around for an hour, pick up a pizza and have a drink at a bar overlooking the harbour.
