More notes about the marina

The Marina Punta Faro is situated in the town of Lignano Sabbiadoro at the end of the peninsula of the same name on the Adriatic coast of Italy, five miles NE of the river marinas of Lignano Riviera and at the western entrance to the Laguna di Marano. One of the largest marinas along the northern Adriatic coast, it offers a total of 1200 berths for vessels of up to 35 metres in depths of 3.0 metres.

Marina radio contact

Call Marina Punta Faro on VHF channel 09. Alternatively, telephone or e-mail in advance for berthing information and reservations.


The entrance to Lignano, which is also the westernmost entrance to the Laguna di Marano, is at World icon.png 45°41.5′N, 13°10.0′E. Dangerous sandbanks extend offshore for over a mile on either side of the entrance and the safe water between the banks (which shift constantly) is marked by a red and white fairway buoy situated about 1.5 miles SSE of the channel. Yachts entering should pass within 50 metres of the buoy, which is moved to reflect the shifts, before turning on a course of c. 355 degrees to cross the bar and pick up the channel, which is marked with wooden posts (white to starboard and red to port). Depths in the channel are around 6.0 metres, but can be as little as 2.5 metres over the bar. Entry should therefore only be attempted close to high water and on a rising tide and never in strong onshore winds. Once in the channel, proceed for about a mile and the entrance to the huge Marina Punta Faro will be visible to port. The marina is entered from NNE.


Berthing assistance available on request. Berths are on 20 pontoons with a mixture of mooring posts, fingers and laid moorings. Transit yachts normally berth on pontoon B close to the entrance.
