    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!

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

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

    Great anchorage with good hold in sandy soil, well protected from the wind and almost no waves. Beach is easily accessible with the Dinghy. There is a fun food & music festival at the end of July until August 4. We have been there 3 nights. There is enough space for around 10 boats. Nice stopover from Lisbon to the Algarve or VV.

    Prima ankerplek met goede houvast in zandbodem, goed beschut tegen de wind en bijna geen golven. Strand is goed bereikbaar met de Dinghy. Eind juli tot en met 4 augustus is er een gezellig food & music festival. Wij hebben er 3 nachten gelegen. Er is genoeg plaats voor ongeveer 10 boten. Mooie tussenstop vanaf Lissabon naar de Algarve of VV.
