Easy anchorage in front of the harbor. Be careful, lots of buoys.

Mouillage facile face au port. Attention, beaucoup de bouées.

The marina is very cheap and good except when the "nortada" (afternoon North wind) is strong in which case the manoeuvring to moor in the marina could be difficult as there is not that much space. Beautiful restaurants in the old village of Sines just 200 meters from the beach!

Good holding, great view, clear water and close to the beach. Great in North winds. If the wind is South-West you will get a bumpy night. Our boat had a tendency to lie beam to the wind and swell in South-West winds but we just anchored next to the marina in South-West winds and got a cosy night. Use the dinghy landing area on the beach or the life guards on the beach will tear your limbs off.

Well protected and the water is very clear in spite of the big port nearby. Beautiful beach and village. Access to shore only by the beach since fuel pontoon and marina gates are closed and need access card. Visit Adega de Sines. It’s a very nice old school, family business restaurant.
