Isla Almora

Perhaps our favourite of the islands in this estuary – unfortunately our visits were curtailed by the weather.

Olhão

Lovely town we visited on three occasions – excellent market, lots of back-streets to explore, easy to get to from the nearby anchorages by ferry/dinghy or sailboat!

Faro

Anchored just outside a mooring field, had a visitor (Nana G) staying with us, good few days close to the city and exploring the saltmarsh.

Alvor

Once we were settled Arthur’s first words were something along the lines of “its good to be at anchor. It is beautiful here.” He was right on both counts.

Cascais

Sheltered anchorage just outside the moored fishing boats. Winter wonderland, beach visit, will return to the town but had to move on because of the weather forecast!

Isla Cíes

Beautiful island with an astounding lagoon (natural aquarium), great beaches and wonderful rock-pools. The busiest of the three Islands we visited in the national park, though, by a long way.
