The ‘quays’ to relaxation and leisure
Marinas in the Algarve are a small part of the huge world of marine tourism in the region.
The excellent leisure facilities and infrastructure open the door to sailors and mariners, and are ideal for both relaxation and action.
Lagos Marina has propelled the traditional maritime City of the Discoveries into the future and is located in an extensive bay, considered one of the largest in Europe, being nearly four kilometres wide.
Facing the sea, with splendid views over the mouth of the River Arade, Portimão Marina is known as the safest harbour in the country and is the setting for many high-level international competitions.
Albufeira Marina has particular appeal because of its central location on the Algarve coastline and because it provides easy access to the lively nerve centre of this tourist resort.
In turn, Vilamoura Marina, the largest in the country and with a long history, is an obligatory stopping point for people who wish to unwind and spend a few perfect moments. Arriving by land or by sea, visitors can take advantage of a huge range of services, which include excellent leisure and sporting facilities, a modern cinema and a sophisticated casino.
