Where sails meet the wind

Lisbon and the Tagus estuary present themselves as stage of excellence, with a diversified offer of leisure tours on board of different boats that allow to enjoy the estuarine beauty throughout its riverfront. The landscape of the Tagus Estuary hides a natural, scenic and cultural richness that can only be revealed through direct observation, highlighting the work already carried out by some municipalities with regard to the recovery of the rich estuarine heritage that are the traditional boats of the Tagus estuary, which represent an incomparable richness in tradition and historical aspect, as an integral part of the life of the several generations that in recent centuries have lived on the riverside of the Tagus estuary.

It should also be highlighted the extremely important role that clubs and associative entities play in the development of nautical activity. The Port of Lisbon supports and welcomes on its banks a vast number of nautical clubs that promote public interest in this way, social, cultural, recreational or sporting, in particular activities related to nautical activities and taking advantage of the potential of the estuary of the Tagus.

The four recreational docks of APL- Alcântara, Santo Amaro, Belém and Bom Sucesso - which constitute the Marina of Lisbon, are an important tourist pillar of the city. With an integrated management, Marina de Lisboa has an offer that embodies the nautical activity as an important focus of development and tourist attraction for the future. The privileged location of its docks allows its visitors to enjoy all the benefits that come from the proximity and centrality of a cosmopolitan and historic city.

Lisbon is currently considered as one of the most interesting destinations in terms of tourism. It is therefore essential that nautical activity also accompanies this development index, enhancing the conditions and partnerships that will make Lisbon an essential hub for nautical activity.
