    Very nice anchorage, arriving we had a bit of a ‘funnel’ with wind from the North it seemed. Still no waves and anchor grabbed ok.

    Excellent anchorage with superb holding, but be sure to dig your anchor in well through the weed. Go ashore on the little beach for access to some good walking/running trails. Marina very friendly, with diesel pump (middle row, 2nd bay in) at reasonable price. Petrol is more of an issue - the fisherman’s jetty has petrol, but they do not sell to yachts (perhaps due to VAT?). You must either take a taxi (as another boat here at the same time as us) or go up the river in your dinghy (as we did) to Ponte do Porto and fill your jerry jugs at the Repsol petrol station.
