General Information: The Guadiana River forms the southeast border between Portugal and Spain. On either side of the river the coast is formed by sandy beaches. Near the entrance of the river the 10m line lies about 2M offshore. Approaching from the west, the conspicuous marks are Monte Gordo high buildings and Vila Real Lighthouse. Approaching from the east, the apartment blocks of Isla Cristina are conspicuous. It is also conspicuous from offshore the suspension bridge located some 2M north of the town Vila Real de St. António. Deliver your documents at the reception.
Entrance: Do not attempt to enter other than at half flood and during daylight. The bar can be rough on ebb becoming dangerous if there is any southerly swell running and offshore wind. By departure, make sure you can reach the bar before dark. The river flows between a breakwater and a submerged dyke, running 335º. The entrance, lights at both ends, is about 550m wide. Seawards of the entrance walls are two pairs of buoys (Nº 1 to nº4). Pass between the buoys and then head for the west breakwater. Keep some 50m off the west shore until the entrance of the marina. The currents inside the river are strong and the space inside the marina is very narrow which makes manoeuvring difficult. The entrance of the marina, at its south end, is narrow (some 20m).
