Sailing or motoring the south coast is an amazing way to discover the Algarve: just plot a route, cast off and set out exploring!

For those who love the sea, there’s nothing better than cruising at the helm of a boat and discovering the hidden coves between the dunes, the cliffs and caves and the many deserted untouched beaches only accessible by boat. Diving in these waters, under the warm Algarve year-round sunshine, is like being in paradise.

With almost 200 km / 124 miles of coastline, great weather, calm waters and 4 main modern marinas, the Algarve is ideal for a sailing or motoring holiday experience.

Main cities of Algarve are Lagos, Portimão, Albufeira, Vilamoura and Faro.
