This shows a map of Portugal with a list of Ports, Harbours and Anchorages. The individual ports can be accessed by clicking on the Port's name when underlined (links).

It is suggested that you browse through the list by clicking on the links provided which will take you from place to place on one of the following routes:

  • A personal Summer Cruising Itinerary suggested by the author
  • Using Marinas only
  • Going from Anchorage to Anchorage (summer weather only)


At the end of each port description there is a table with links to enable you to:
  • Continue on the suggested Cruising Route
  • Continue to the next Marina
  • Continue to the next Anchorage

All these links have two options depending, on the direction of travel :

  • South down the west coast of Portugal to Cape St. Vincent and then East along the Algarve coast.
  • West along the Algarve coast to Cape St Vincent then North up the west coast

The text has automatic links to web sites for further information regarding towns, marina prices etc.  To return to these pages use  the BACK button on the browser or, alternatively use the browser's 'history' list if you have accessed many on other sites.
