Marina d'Angra

Marina in Azores
The Angra Marina is located on the south side of Terceira Island, 50 meters from the center of the historic city of Angra do Heroísmo and within the Bay of this city which, since the 15th century, has been considered a “port of call of the western seas”, being mandatory stop for ships crossing the Atlantic. GENERAL INFORMATION Today, Marina d'Angra is surrounded by a UNESCO World Heritage City since 1983 for its architecture. The Marina has excellent top-of-the-range complementary services, which give the city a modern touch. Next to the Marina there is a beach and, on the opposite side, you can discover the underwater archaeological parks of the city. To be in these parks is to immerse yourself in History: you will find a cemetery of anchors and even what remains of the Lidador shipwreck, a Portuguese ship from the 19th century. XIX. Marina d'Angra has held the European Blue Flag since 2006. PROHIBITED Angra do Heroísmo is located on the south coast of Terceira Island. During the day, Monte Brasil is a reference. At night, if the approach is from W, the Monte Brasil lighthouse is only visible from the marking 057º. The marina is located in the eastern part of the bay protected by a breakwater. The approach is made over the 342º line formed by the front and rear lighthouses of Angra do Heroísmo. After the lighthouse on the jetty has passed through the starboard beam, turn to starboard and head towards the entrance to the marina. The W anchorage near Baixa da Prainha can become dangerous and uncomfortable with the waves raised by the S and E winds.
