The port is protected by a two-arm outer breakwater with internal quay frontage except for the last stretch of about 140 m, which is formed of a reef.
The final stretch of the internal quay frontage ends with a protruding part perpendicular to it, to protect the entrance.
The new inner breakwater protects the east dock, which is internally divided into two by the old inner breakwater.
Stay in the centre of the channel following the "S" shape of the entrance. Outgoing vessels must keep straight and take precedence over those entering. The maximum speed of the boats must be no greater than 3 knots without creating waves.
Pay attention to a constant east-west current about 4m from the coast.
