Why do yachtsmen prefer Lisbon?

It is an ancient city of sailors with all the necessary infrastructure.

There are 7 functioning marines here:

  1. Parque das Nacoes is a northernmost wharf, really spacious. It is located near the miracle of architecture — Vasco da Gama bridge. While the ship is on service, you could relax in the Park of Nations, a tourist area with a lot of entertainment.
  2. Alcantara is situated behind the quay for cruise liners and container terminals. It has been built recently, that’s why it is just gaining popularity. Alcantara is a comfortable, safe place and the total load of it happens rarely.
  3. Belem is a prestigious wharf in a classy area of the capital. There is not a lot of space here, so, it is difficult to find a free guest pier.
  4. Bon Sucesso is not that luxurious as the previous place but it also belongs to the prestigious ones. Places for guests are few. If you manage to moor here you could walk to the Cultural Center of Belem with its multiple museums and exhibitions.
  5. Oeiras is located in the suburb of the same name between Lisbon and Cascais. It‘s easier to find a free berth here than in Belem or Bom Sucesso. The local landmark is an ancient port with a functioning lighthouse.
  6. Sao Amaro, as a new one, is going after clients. Local clubs and discos are waiting for yachtsmen until 4 a. m.
  7. Terreiro do Trigo is situated in a poor criminal part of the city, so, there is a danger of a vessel being chased away.

All marinas stand at the mouth of the Tagus River which flows into the Atlantic Ocean. The mouth itself is a natural port which can be entered through two canals. There are shallows here but all of them are marked on the maps and it is easy to get around.
