Ep. 04 - How to Approach the Lisbon, Portugal Marina

November 29, 2018

Today we approach together Lisbon, Portugal’s viral capital. Among the many options in Lisbon we picked Marina Parque das Nacoes because it’s the closest to the airport, not even 10 mins by car. However it’s the furthest marina up Rio Tejo, so if you only stay overnight it might not be the best option as it will take you 3 to 4 hours from the entrance of the Rio Tejo. In that case Cascais, Oeiras or one of the plenty other marinas further downstream Rio Tejo might be the better options. Lisbon is a great destination for every sailor headed North from the Canary Islands or the Mediterranean to the Bay of Biscay or for those headed the opposite direction.
