Did you know, Sea Oats help form and stabilize dunes, which in turn block the salt spray and allow less salt-tolerant plants to grow in habitats behind the dunes.

We offer bicycle rentals for all ages… today is a great day to explore the Gulf Islands National Seashore by bike.

Fall is a beautiful season to visit Portofino Island.  The weather is perfect!

Two for One is Twice the FUN!

Our Fitness Center overlooks our outdoor infinity pools and the Santa Rosa Sound.  What an amazing view to enjoy while you exercise.

Sin in a Tin, produced locally in Pensacola and sold here at Portofino Island Resort in our Market, has become one of my new favorite treats.  The fact is… I love chocolate!  Chocolate makes a rough day better and a good day fantastic!  If you have not had the opportunity to try Sin in a Tin, I highly recommend this decadent treat.  Pair it with fresh strawberries, and it is simple irresistible.  Oh my, it is too hard to talk about and not enjoy, I think I will go get one right now!
