If you are planning a holiday in Cattolica and are looking for a suitable place to spend an afternoon or a dinner, Portoverde is an ideal destination.
Located north of Cattolica, Portoverde is a marina and a residential complex with a Mediterranean style that blends with "skyscrapers" and offers many opportunities to spend moments of relaxation or fun.
Its history dates back to the 1960s, when a group of entrepreneurs decided to build a marina and a residential complex along this portion of the coast. The project included the construction of a marina with berths, residences, villas and apartments with gardens and swimming pools to offer a housing solution to tourists looking for a holiday destination. Thanks to its clear waters and its strategic position, Portoverde immediately became a successful destination for vacationers, attracting tourists from all over Italy and abroad.
Today the marina is an ideal place for a stroll, where you can admire luxury boats and yachts, and enjoy the coastal scenery. There are also shops and restaurants offering typical products of the region.
For a dinner in Portoverde, there are several options to choose from. We particularly like the "Capitan Italo" restaurant, with its direct view of the sea, it is suitable for families and couples (the latter must ask for a table on the rocks!!!)! Obviously it serves fresh fish dishes (the spectacular "Spaghetti in Crosta", the "Purple Clouds", the "Paella"...) but it also has excellent alternatives for those who are not really fish lovers. The owner Francesco is an expert sommelier, so ask for advice on choosing the perfect wine to accompany your dinner.
If you stay at the Club House residence in Cattolica, Portoverde is easily accessible by car or bicycle, but if you don't mind walking, you can also take a pleasant walk (about 2km!). Alternatively, there are buses and taxis available. You can hire a bike and take a ride around the marina or along the coast. There are also some sandy beaches nearby where you can relax in the sun and take a dip.
In conclusion, if you are looking for a destination for an afternoon or a dinner during your holiday in Cattolica, Portoverde is an excellent choice. With its sea views, marina, restaurants and outdoor activities, Portoverde offers many options for a fun and relaxing day out.
