 Any form of vessel that moves on water is of interest to the Portuguese. They have a long history of marine voyages and their subsequent important land discoveries.

 Besides the natural harbours there are very few man-made marinas along the Portuguese coastline. At the present time there exists a marina in Lisbon and a completed one at Cascais. Other than these the remainder are along the Algarve coast. The biggest marina is at Vilamoura whilst a smaller one is to be found at Lagos and another at Vila Real de Santo António. Recently completed and open is a marina at Portimão and another in Albufeira.

 It is possible to charter yachts and boats from both Vilamoura, Portimão and Lagos Marinas.

 On most beaches, especially in the south, visitors can hire smaller sailing boats from Beach Sport Centres. It is important to note that the Portuguese authorities have regulations and rules relating to security and awareness of these is advisable.
