    There at least we are protected .... But little space, little background, difficult access (trust the markings rather than Navionic). Noisy and a lot of passing fishermen. Muddy water, so remember to fill the tanks first. In short, you have to have a good reason to get here. For me it was to pick up someone who came from the airport in the evening. Recovered as an annex from the public pontoon in Faro. The bus station (and trains) are nearby. It is convenient.

    Là au moins on est protégé.... Mais peu de place, peu de fond, accès délicat ( se fier au balisage plutôt qu'à Navionic ) . Bruyant et beaucoup de passage de pêcheurs. Eau boueuse, donc penser à remplir les tanks avant. Bref, faut avoir une bonne raison de se mettre ici. Pour moi, c'était pour récupérer quelqu'un qui venait de l'aéroport le soir. Récupéré en annexe sur le ponton public de Faro. La gare routière ( et de trains ) sont á côté. C'est pratique.

    Protected anchorage where you can stay longer. Lots of buoys, but all the way to the south. When approaching, follow the buoy exactly. Then it works even at low tide. Up to 2 meters draft. With the dinghy you can go to the marina and moor there next to the gas station. If you want to go back in the dark, you should have a card on your mobile phone. At low tide you have to follow the trenches (not filled with concrete). Go with. Navionics good.

    Geschützter Ankerplatz, wo man auch länger liegen bleiben kann. Viele Bojen , aber ganz im Süden geht es. Bei der Anfahrt, genau der Betonnung folgen. Dann geht es auch bei Niedrigwasser. Bis 2 Meter Tiefgang. Mit dem Beiboot kann man in die Marina, und dort neben der Tankstelle festmachen. Wer im Dunkeln zurück will, sollte eine Karte auf dem Handy haben. Man muss bei Niedrigwasser den Gräben ( unbetonnt) folgen. Geht mit. Navionics gut.

    Good anchorage with good holding, Very noisy and very tricky to go in, follow the channel and check the tides.
