The Yacht Harbor Association renews top level classification after rigorous assessment.

Marina de Lagos recently renewed the 5 Gold Anchor award, given by the The Yacht Harbor Association (TYHA), after another thorough assessment of the Marina’s facilities, staff and service.

Mieke Vleugels, the Gold Anchor assessor, says of the marina “Marina de Lagos is the ideal holiday destination for active water sports enthusiasts. Experience the best of the Portuguese coasts and enjoy top-notch customer care”.

The 5 Gold Anchor distinction – criteria having become more demanding since the last assessment – is one of Marina de Lagos’ international awards, along with the International Marine Certification Institute’s 5 Blue Stars (IMCI), the Euromarina Anchor Award and the European Blue Flag, that certify this Marina’s exceptional quality and conformity with the demanding nautical service quality criteria, as well as security, environmental protection, hygiene, leisure facilities, appearance, and restaurants and other services.

Marina de Lagos is internationally acclaimed due to its excellent nautical facilities, location and surroundings, such as being in the heart of the town of Lagos, next to the best beaches, the abundant possibilities of coastal cruising from the Marina, and a complete environment of leisure and relaxation. Visitors to Marina de Lagos come from all over the world, at about 2000 boats and 30 different nationalities yearly. Lagos benefits from a strategic location on the international routes to and from the Med, Cape Verde, Madeira and the Caribbean.

Marina de Lagos is part of a real estate and high quality tourist complex designed and managed by the MSF Group, and includes the Marina Club Lagos Resort (4 star hotel and holiday apartments)
