    Nice anchorage good holding in 7-8m. Anchorage area from shore to yellow buoys (2). Don’t go more to ferry quay, ferry turns inside the breakwaters. Arrives in morning and leaves late afternoon. Covid: call HM on VHF09 between 0900 - 1700. Or email in advance: marina.portosanto@apram.pt. Also register on website Madeirasafe. The marina will contact the hospital and arrange a test for you, we had ours at 12:00. Result next day early morning. Super arrangements by marina!!

    Very friendly staff. Covid-19 test quickly and then all freedom. Do not anchor too far east in the harbor basin. I caught a monster twice and drifted away with it. Anchor ground approx. 8 m. With 25 m. Chain is ok. The wind sometimes comes in gusts and from all directions. Shopping in 25 min. Water on request from the master. Approx. 5 € / day. Have been here for 3 weeks and stay 3 more.

    Seh freundliches Personal. Covid-19 Test schnell und danach alle Freiheiten. Im Hafenbecken Nicht zu weit Ost Ankern. Habe zweimal ein Monstum gefangen und bin damit abgetrieben. Ankergrund ca. 8 m. Mit 25 m. Kette ist ok. Der Wind kommt zuweilen heftig in Böhen und aus allen Richtungen. Einkaufen in 25 min. Wasser auf Anfrage beim Meister. Ca. 5€/ Tag. Bin seid 3 Wochen hier und bleibe noch 3.

    We were at anchor here for 2 days until we had completed our corona test and then got a berth on the jetty in the small marina. The anchor field is marked with buoys. Well protected with a good grip on a sandy bottom. There are no more moorings and therefore we had no problem with the anchor as described by some comments earlier. You are well protected even if there are sometimes violent gusts coming down from the mountain.

    Wir lagen hier 2 Tage vor Anker bis wir unseren Coronatest absolviert hatten und wir dann in der kleinen Marina einen Liegeplatz am Steg bekommen haben. Das Ankerfeld ist mit Bojen gekennzeichnet. Gut geschützt mit gutem Halt auf Sandgrund. Es gibt keine Moorings mehr und daher hatten wir auch kein Problem mit dem Anker wie von einigen Kommentaren zuvor beschrieben. Man liegt gut geschützt auch wenn es teilweise heftige Boen gibt, die vom Berg herunter kommen.
