In Nautical Tourism, the Algarve is the leader
It´s not surprising that a region located on the Oceanside offers exceptional conditions for the practice of several water sports.
When you moor your yacht in one of the many excellent marinas or docks along the coast, you will see that the ocean is just a pretext to enjoy during your free time, even without wetting your swimming suit. You will soon realize what we mean when you discover the towns of Vilamoura, Portimão, Faro, Olhão or Vila Real de Santo António.
The beautiful marinas of Lagos, Portimão, Albufeira and Vilamoura bear the maximum 5 golden anchors, a rating awarded by The Yacht Harbor Association, which places the Algarve as the leader in nautical tourism at national level.
According to the European association of marinas and recreational ports, the classification of 5 golden anchors certifies “the quality and trustworthiness of a marina”. The four marinas in the Algarve also have the "Blue Flag", a reference in environmental quality.
The Algarve Sea, the variety and level of many of the international competitions, continue to attract many sailing and boating races.
