Porto Massimo is a small residential area on the east coast. It houses a private marina, a hotel, two coffee bars and several small apartments for tourist use. Even now it is considered a popular destination for middle and higher class visitors. In the 1980s and 1990s, it was at the core of the summer nightlife thanks to a suggestive discotheque on the sea: the Cormorano. Still today La Maddalena citizens and tourists preserve a delightful memory of it.
