    Marina is new (2017 i think) the view is beatifull. arriving there can be a strong lateral current ive measured up to 3 kn. The harbour master was not reachable by vhf. On arrival he didn’t like the spot we were ready to take and made us change. Bad idea with lateral current and full keel without bowthruster. Nothing a little extra throttle could not fix. Spots was tight to get into. In the end I was not amused with the arriving procedure. The reception cheered me right up. Such a delightful lady! In the evening taking a shower it was cold! Something I do not expect when paying exorbitant amounts of money. Also the dryer was not working well. After 3x4 euros I took out my wet laundry and hang it outside to dry. All together I had a much better experience in the marina on the north side of Porto/ the other port. (It’s 3 times cheaper) and has smoking hot showers.

    Very nice place go stay! The million dollar question first; yes it is expensive. €46 for 10-12m yachts (monohull). >3 nights you get 10% on the 4th and following nights. Reception is very good! Staff explains you where to go and advises your needs. Wifi excellent, showers very nice and bars/restaurants and a bakery nearby. The beach at Gaia is nice, 20m walk. Strongly recommend to download the Uber app for taxis, €6,50 to downtown Porto! €4,- to Churchills for Port tasting which was worth a visit. Ask marina receptionist about this. We enjoyed our stay, only improvement for marina to get the price under €40/night (for <12m) it would be a 5 star. Currents on Douro river, be aware. 3-3.5 kts on the ebb. Easy to sail in between breakwaters with reasonable sea conditions, at first red buoy wind dies (if Northerly quadrant)

    Excellent welcome, very considerate. The price is not that high after the reductions made by the marina (15% after 3 days, or 50 € for a 14m monohull). Very authentic Afurada village. Old town of Porto easily accessible by public transport, and on foot if you like to walk (4 km).

    Excellent accueil, très prévenant. Le prix n'est pas si élevé après les réductions faites par la marina (15% après 3 jours, soit 50€ pour monocoque de 14m). Village de Afurada très authentique. Vieille ville de Porto accessible facilement en transports en commun, et à pieds si on aime marcher (4 km).
