Marina Porto Atlântico (Leixões)
Marinas and Harbours
It has 240 berths for yachts up to 30 metres in length, although longer vessels may also moor there. In addition to its many facilities (including a 6.5 ton crane and a tidal grid for larger craft), the marina has 4 yacht clubs, a clear sign of its sporting vocation, where visitors can meet up with other keen devotees of the life on the ocean waves. In this surrounding area, there is also a mechanical maintenance service, sail repair service, carpenters and electricians, as well as a supermarket, banks, post offices and several shops (including one selling nautical articles).
In the immediate vicinity of the marina are the beaches of Leça, the Quinta da Conceição (tennis courts and a swimming-pool), the tidal swimming-pool and the Museum and Stately Home of Quinta de Santiago, without forgetting the historical centres of Matosinhos and Leça da Palmeira, both of which are full of restaurants where visitors can enjoy the traditional local fish and seafood dishes. Also close by are several prestigious golf courses.
