Today the modern marinas of Albufeira, Lagos, Portimão and Vilamoura are building on this great maritime tradition as well as the smaller boat harbours in Faro, Olhão. Tavira (on the estuary of the Gilão river) and Vila Real de Santo Antonio on the Guadiana river, the border of the Algarve with Spain. Year by year the FEE (Foundation for Environmental Education) has awarded the 4 marinas in the Algarve the “Blue Flag” for quality of water, sanitary installation, parking place, lifeguard and other available services.
