    Great anchorage very close to the bank of the sandy river. We went ashore swimming. Little wind and very calm, except for some fishing boats when going out to fish. Beautiful Ferragudo town.

    Estupendo fondeo muy cerca de la Ribera del río de arena. Bajamos a tierra nadando. Poco viento y muy tranquilo, salvo algunos pesqueros al salir a faenar. Precioso pueblo Ferragudo.

    I occurred anchor here (but there are buoys available). It’s convenient for shopping in Ferragudo. But the water’s murky and fishing boats pass close by. Easier access ashore by dinghy when the wind is strong. I usually return to beach anchorage ASAP.

    Anchoring of good behavior. Leave the pontoon annex behind the road bridge for Portimao. The village of Ferragudo is very nice with restaurants and bars - small grocery store and bakery in the center.

    Mouillage de bonne tenue. Laisser l'annexe au ponton derrière le pont routier pour Portimao. Le village de Ferragudo est très sympa avec restaurants et bars - petite épicerie et boulangerie dans le centre.
