Silted up port with fish farms

Called Portus Magnus by the Romans, Portmán has been completely silted up by effluent from the lead and zinc mines inland. The scars in the hillside and the new wind farm on the top of the hill inland make recognition of Portmán relatively easy. There is a huge fish farm to the west of the bay which leaves little space to anchor. The small dinghy harbour, on the east side, has a breakwater running out from the beach with a red column at its end. The harbour is totally sheltered but only has about 0.5m depth at the entrance and is only for dinghies and RIBS. There is a club náutico on the west side of the beach but there are no facilities at all in
