The village resort of Porto San Paolo has a particular beauty looking straight across the islands of Tavolara and Molara, rich in wildlife and a wealth of rosemary and red-berried lentiscus.
Once a fishermen village, it is nowadays a dazzling tourist resort just 10 min away from the Airport of Olbia, ideal for families on a relaxing vacation.
Its splendid small sandy beaches and the bay it sits behind are the main assets of this tiny resort, that has got a lot to offer in spring and autumn when mainstream holiday makers leave the way to a traditional and quite Sardinian experience.
In spring the maquis is a tangled bouquet of colour that set a beautiful painting with the view of the islands in front and the thickly wooded oaks hills behind and creates a perfect setting for picnics and walk tours around the numerous country farms and silent valleys.
The smallest Kingdom in the whole world, with its legendary shepherd-King and splendid shores, lies right in the middle of the Marine Natural Park.
