let's not forget the possibility of a big refueling in a shop overlooking the port and whose name I will not mention (in truth, it is a French brand). prices are a little high for Portugal, but slightly lower than French prices. they can deliver on the port. a good solution is to spend several days in the bay and spend a day a night and a day at the port to get deliver supplies. the port is expensive but the ladies of the captaincy are very nice.

n'oublions pas la possibilité de faire un gros avitaillement dans un magasin qui surplombe le port et dont je ne citerai pas le nom( en vérité, c'est une marque française). les prix sont un peu élevés pour le Portugal, mais un peu moins élevés que les prix français. ils peuvent livrer sur le port. une bonne solution, c'est de mouiller plusieurs jours dans la baie et de passer un jour une nuit et un jour au port pour se faire livrer l'avitaillement. le port est cher mais les dames de la capitainerie sont très gentilles.

This bay is divided in 4 sections. Both A and C are for the pleasure crafts. Section A is only allowed during the summer and you need a license. C is available all year around except on bad weather (is ship caption responsibility to move the ship away on bad weather) but is shared with fishing boats. There are some channels to access these sections and you can’t drop anchor there, obviously. Also it’s forbidden to swim or dive on the bay (part of the rules but everyone do it, I believe). These rules are written down in Portuguese only, I think, but available on the internet. Also chart plotters has these sections. Fines can be applied if you don’t respect the rules. This said, it’s my first time here (section C) on the winter (23/Nov) and it’s a little bit rolling but safe for now. No other boats on this section. The swell is from W and winds from SW (weak for now). I know there are many stuff on the seabed which can old you anchor. I never had an issue but I’m always afraid of this and I saw already boats maneuvering to get free and heard stories of people asking professional divers to come to free them up. Tomorrow I’ll see! Just to finish, if you have the opportunity, visit the city. Cascais it’s a very pleasant city.

For safety, even mandatory. !. An orin. Many things hang around in the background. Other than that, very good anchorage. According. The winds of course. The marina snob so expensive without interest. (It's the French saint tropez).

Par sécurité, même obligatoire. !. Un orin. Beaucoup de choses traînent dans les fonds. À part ça très bon mouillage. Selon. Les vents bien sur. La marina snob donc cher sans intérêts. ( c'est le saint tropez français ) .

Good holding anchorage, even with 30knots gusts wind. With less wind the swell comes in and makes is a bit uncomfortable. City itself is tourstic and pricey but theres a train going straight for Lisbon for only €2,25 one way.

Nice town, good coastal walks & biking. Easy trains to Lisbon. Fuel & water on marina fuel dock. Small charge for water. They allow non marina customers to park dinghy BEHIND fuel dock & not on it!!!! Please respect this & do not spoil this for the rest of us!! The large area behind breakwater is extremely foul with old chains anchors etc - we moved 3 different t locations & stuck every time!

Good holding and good alternative to the nice but expensive marina. We did not need to go ashore so can’t comment but another boat told us they left their dinghy on the fishing dock no problem

Good anchorage, well sheltered from the swell. Arrived at 20h, we found some space. By cons noise of the disco removes all the charm of this anchorage.

Bon mouillage, bien abrité de la houle. Arrivée à 20h, nous avons trouvé de la place. Par contre bruit de la discothèque enlève tout le charme de ce mouillage.

Attention ⚠️ very good anchorage But very bad reception, Captain of shit no possibility to put the annex (private property) without ending up with a padlock fortunately we had a clip bolts cutter. Portugal shit ...... attention ⚠️

Attention ⚠️ très bon mouillage Mais très mauvais accueil, capitainerie de merde pas de possibilité de mettre l’annexe (propriété privée) sans se retrouver avec un cadenas heureusement nous avions une pince coupe boulons. Portugal de merde ...... attention ⚠️

Great anchorage next to a charming and overpriced Marina. Well protected from the north. Background of sand. Room to avoid. Very pleasant city.

Super mouillage à côté d'une Marina sans charme et hors de prix. Bien protégé du nord. Fond de sable. De la place pour éviter. Ville très agréable.

Very good anchorage since it's beautiful place, calm, safe, clean, protected from the wind and the swell, 5/6mts deep therefore a good place to take a jump in the water and have fun! Just one note: be careful with fishing stuff on the sea ground. They could hold you anchor and you need to maneuver or even dive to unlock! I've hearth advices and saw a boat maneuvering almost half an hour to unlock the anchor!
