Portbou is the first harbour that boats arriving from France come to, after rounding Cap Cerbère. Surrounded by sparsely vegetated mountains, the marina is sheltered from the tramuntana and has a very relaxed, family atmosphere. The marina is just a few metres from the town, where there are plenty of bars, restaurants and supermarkets. The harbour entrance is 9 metres deep and faces northwest. The marina has berths for boats up to 20 metres long, and inside it there is a maximum depth of 8 metres. The bay of Portbou, with its crystalline waters, is flanked to the north by Cala de les Tres Platgetes and Cala del Pi.
