    La Kahina | Sailboat — 13.2 m

    This was listed in my 1998 cruising guide as an anchorage. Arriving Rio Formosa at 02:00 and not willing to anchor outside the Breakwater with 30 kts it was easy to get in the breakwater and find the green by 1 and 3. There is a shallow bank to the WNW so stay a good bit east, I was 20m from By 3 at low spring tide and still had a water depth of 2.5m. A town on Isla Culatra would be easily reachable by Dinghy but Faro is Miles away from here. Sand and seaweed bottom.
