Fishing Harbour

The fishing traditions of Sines go back centuries. The Fishing Harbour offers a tackle wharf, an unloading wharf, a slipway and several land facilities. It is formed by an inner basin sheltered by a breakwater which offers good protection for docking and anchoring fishing boats.

The tackle wharf is 220m long and 2,5 metres deep, while the fish unloading wharf has 140m, offering  depths of 4,5 metres, whether on the manoeuvring or the docking basins.

Between the wharves is a slipway with an area of 2.150 square metres. The shore facilities include a fish market and administrative services with an ice house and full facilities for traders. The fish dock also offers maintenance workshops, a fuel station, sludge oil reception and fresh water and power supply.
