Horta´s marina is the main harbour of the Azores and the fourth most visited marina in the world. Its location offers an excellent shelter against the winds from any direction and makes it an almost compulsory scale for all yachts in route from the Caribbean to the Med. Horta is also the venue to many international regattas, such as Les Sables - Les Azores - Les Sables, Vannes – Les Açores – Vannes, Portsmouth – Horta, Route des Hortensia, ARC Europe and many others.
Horta Marina helds the European Blue Flag since 1987.
Horta is a small town, filled with sailor spirit and sea legends. Our marina walls haven’t got empty spaces, being filled with paintings made by yachtsmen in order to have good luck on their sea travels. Tradition has made Horta’s marina an open air gallery. Horta means also the mythical Peter Café Sport, which is more than a silor’s bar: it is a post office, an exchange currency spot, a scrimshaw museum and, most of all, open arms and a restful happy in your journey. The whole town of Horta vibrates with and for the adventurous yachtsmen.
