Marina Punta Gabbiani is situated on the W shore of the Laguna di Marano on the Adriatic coast of Italy, close to the similar, larger marinas of Marina Aprilia Marittima and Marina Capo Nord. It is accessed via a channel with depths of around 3.0 metres at low water and provides 295 berths for shallow or moderate draft yachts of up to 25 metres.


Call Marina Punta Gabbiani on VHF channel 09 or 16. Alternatively, telephone or email for berthing information and reservations.


The marina is accessed by Porto Lignano/wiki/Marina_Punta_Gabbiani#Porto_LignanoWorld icon.png Porto Lignano [[Marina Punta Gabbiani#Porto Lignano|Porto Lignano]] 45°41.996'N, 013°09.459'E , the main westernmost entrance to the Laguna di Marano. Porto Lignano lies immediately E of the peninsula of Lignano Sabbiadoro, between it and the low island of Isola di Martignano. 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 through the channel, pass the entrance to Marina Punta Faro in Lignano and take the marked channel leading SW for just over three miles to the settlement of Aprilia Marittima. Marina Punta Gabbiani lies in the first basin to port just before the entrance to Marina Aprilia Marittima. Depths in this channel can be as little as 3.0 metres and entry should only be made, as with Porto Lignano itself, on a rising tide and close to high water.


Berthing assistance available on request. Berths are on seven pontoons protected from E by a long embankment. All berths have mooring posts for four-point mooring.
