Marina di S. Elmo - Alghero, Sardinia
Marina Di S. Elmo is a new harbor located at the southern end of the port of Alghero.
The wharfs are situated below the ancient walls of the old city. This is a very quiet area, just a stone's thrown from the historical center of Alghero, the part of the city that is surrounded by walls constructed by the Moors.
The Port of Alghero is a fishing and tourist port sited within a deep bay. It is easy to reach and well protected by a wide breakwater. Alghero itself is a small fishing town that has developed over time thanks to the tourist industry and Fertilia International Airport, which is conveniently situated just a few miles away. The local culture and traditions of Alghero have remained intact over the centuries, and the local people are renowned for their hospitality.
The town's historical centre is especially charming and picturesque, and offers a multitude of fine restaurants, cafes and bars.
The Port of Alghero
The port of Alghero is protected by two quays: the South Quay (Molo Sud), measuring around 850m, and the New Low-Surge Quay (Nuovo Molo di Sottoflutto), located to the north and also measuring around 850m. The latter features a 125m mooring pier. The New Dock, with an average depth of 2m, is located in the north-eastern part of the port, between the Millelire wharf, the first arm of the New Low-Surge Quay and the Lo Frasso Quay (Molo Lo Frasso). Inside the dock, there are several floating piers, even though the area remains ideal for fishing vessels. The Furesi Quay separates the New Docks from the Tourist Docks, which are located between the Northern Quay (Molo Nord) and the Garibaldi Wharf (Banchina Garibaldi). The Tourist Port features numerous piers for the mooring of cruising craft. The southern part of the port plays host to the Banchina Dogana and the Banchina Sanità, which provide mooring facilities for yachts in transit and also deals with some commercial operations. Outside the Northern Quay, there are two 100m cement mooring piers, each with a comb-like arrangement.
The sea bed is rocky and sandy.
The main winds are the north-west wind and the south-west winds.
The area is sheltered from the scirocco, ostro and north-east winds. The closest safe anchor is at Porto Conte (around 7 miles to the west).
