More notes about the marina

Marina de Lagos is situated at the port of Lagos on the south coast of Portugal and is regarded as the ‘Gateway to the Algarve’ as it is at the heart of this wonderful cruising area. The marina is by most accounts one of the best marinas in Portugal and has maintained a very high standard over the years since its opening. Marina de Lagos has a total of 462 berths on finger pontoons for yachts of up to 30 metres and maximum draft of 3.0 metres.


Call Marina de Lagos on VHF channel 09. See below for registration details.

Plan of Marina de Lagos

The entrance to Lagos is 1.5 miles north of Ponta da Piedade, a headland distinguished by remarkable jagged rock formations and marked with a conspicuous squat yellow lighthouse tower with a red top. Vessels enter Lagos up a narrow channel between two moles identifiable by port and starboard tower markers. The channel is dredged to a minimum depth of 3.0 metres. Proceed up the channel and berth at the 80 metre marina reception pontoon to starboard just before the lifting bridge. This pontoon also serves as the fuel station. Once berthed on the reception pontoon, visit the marina office adjacent to the pontoon with your boat papers. After you have registered, entry to the marina is via the lifting bridge, which opens on demand via VHF channel 09 from: 08.00 - 22.00 (1 June - 15 September); 09.00 - 18.00 (16 September - 31 May).


Berthing assistance may be provided by calling in advance on VHF channel 09. Yachts tie up in the marina alongside on finger pontoons.
