Porto Istana is a location in front of the sea, with lots of beaches, a really fine and white sand and a water which colours varies from blue to turquoise. That place can be easily reached from Olbia’s harbour or airport. At about 8km from Olbia (Southward) there is a small village called Murta Maria; there is a big roundabout in this village and after turning left (taking the third exit) and going straight for about 1km you will reach Porto Istana.

The name comes from the little tourist port where only little boats can moor. Porto Istana is located in front of two main islands called Tavolara and Molara inside the Natural Park of Capo Ceraso.

The main beach, here in Porto Istana, has got a really white sand and there are also dedicated areas with sunbeds and sunshades. Here you can also rent a boat or taking sailing or windsurfing lessons. 4km South, in Porto S. Paolo, there is one of the Sardinia's most famous diving centres. Going a little bit southern there is also a 18-holes Golf course in Puntaldia.

Main services in Porto Istana: Minimarket, fish market, bars, restaurant and a little church. You can find all of this in Murta Maria at just about 1.2km from our houses. .
