The hamlet of Porto is located at the bottom of the valley of Porto, half a mile from its mouth. The latter houses the fishing port but also a flotilla of boats, some for excursions in season to the Creeks of Piana and Capu Rossu south of the Gulf of Porto, and to Girolata and Scandola Nature Reserve in the north, and the other dive schools and rental.
To the east of the square Genoese tower, developed Porto Marina, a tourist complex consisting of hotels, restaurants and shops. South of the tower, Porto has a large pebble beach.
Porto is located equidistant from Ajaccio south of Calvi and Corte north east. It is crossed by the road called D81 in this portion of Route edge of Corsican sea, but it is the starting point of the D84 road between the RN 193 to Francardo (Omessa).
The economy of the Porto region relies heavily on tourism. There are about forty hotels. Behind the season many groups use the site. But there also are a few activities in the primary sector (farming).
The tourist office is located in Porto Marina.
