Portorosa, located at the lowest point of the bay between the Gulf of Milazzo and Tindari, This place is very popular with yacht and boat owners, a tourist complex characterized by villas, surrounded by vegetation, with views of navigable channels, along which are the moorings that make up the prestigious Port.

Portorosa is the largest yachting and boating tourist port in Sicily and one of the most exclusive in the Mediterranean.

 

 

The Marina as a yachting base

The seabed is sandy and not very consistent. At the entrance to the Port, varies between 4 and 5 metres, while inland it drops to 2.5 metres, so it has plenty of depth for yachts up to 15m

Find the maritime authority at the Milazzo Port Office.
Boats and yachts may face difficulties entering the Port when the wind and rough seas blow from the northwest.

The entrance from land is guarded by a booth with automatic gates that operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to ensure security within the complex and to watch over the entrances.

The Port and its beaches were “Blue Flag” from 1993 to 2010

 

Name Origin

The name Portorosa derives from the wife name of the businessman who built the Marina. It also came from the typical colour given to the houses and the different buildings of the Port, which are pink.

 

History of the Town

The tourist settlement and the Port are the results of a private business initiative, with the consent of the municipal administration, undertaken at the end of the seventies. The actual construction was in 1985.

The Milanese architect Giulio Minoletti designed the Marina. The French Port of Grimaud partly inspires him. Before the construction, it was citrus fruits and vines plantation.
A small shopping centre, a service station, restaurants, a swimming pool, the ‘Genesi’ discotheque and various commercial and sailing facilities, country houses and residences equipped the Marina.

At the end of 2002 and beginning of 2003, Hilton hotel started the construction of an imposing hotel. Later the “Valtur” chain acquired the hotel.

According to the testimony of the repentant mafioso Santo Gullo, Portorosa was one of the many places that “welcomed” the fugitives from the mafia.
