Porto Pino est bordé dans sa partie méridionale par une côte rocheuse avec de hautes dunes. La côte N est au contraire formée d'une plage basse. La pointe Menga limite Porto Pino à l'W. Une lagune, derrière les dunes de sable, abrite plusieurs colonies de flamants roses.

Cette immense baie de sable offre un mouillage sans aucun problème, à toutes les profondeurs, assez loin de la plage car le fond remonte très lentement.
