Why we call them Sky Homes…

Situated on eight miles of untouched white sand beaches along Pensacola Beach, Portofino Island will spoil you in one of nature’s last unspoiled playgrounds. Here, the sand, sea and sky influence everything we do. Each of our five towers, with 21 stories in each, has been designed to offer you panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico or the Santa Rosa Sound while giving you all the comforts of home.

This is the view from the 13th floor of Tower 5.  Simply breathtaking.

All units have a water view.  This particular unit has a view of the Gulf of Mexico and the Santa Rosa Sound.

Great day to enjoy the sugar white sands of Pensacola Beach.

Our Tennis Center is gearing up for Spring and Summer.  We have some exciting events planned, like our Adult Doubles Mini Camp and the “now famous” Greek Mixer.

Our exquisite Sky Homes are a great way to enjoy a birds eye view of the surrounding Gulf Island National Seashore.
