The Santa Marta sand bar opens between San Vicente Island on the east and the Punta do Frade on the west, with the navigable part being that closest to the western part of the island. We access the mouth via the NW, paying attention to the remains of the hull of a boat off Fornos beach that is covered at high tide. We pass through the centre of the bar with the westernmost tip of the island on port tack and heading more towards it, sailing very close to the rocks at a distance of about 15/20 m. We follow that course TH: 195o, past the sand bar we pull heavily towards starboard going through the centre of the canal, which is about 200 m wide, but not very deep.

The Ortigueira Yacht Club anchored red and green buoys that show us the route. In the bend known as ‘Sismundi’ the sounding lines measure between 8 and 11 m. This pool is used by some sailboats for anchoring if they have not got a place in the marina.

Changing conditions experienced by the entrance canal to the Santa Marta de Ortigueira Ria, and the possibility of a breaker in it, hamper access to this port. It is advisable to enter or leave an hour before high tide

The port of Ortigueira is in the middle of the eastern coast of Estaca de Bares. Summer is when boats arrive at this port; nonetheless, a small fleet operating seasonally moors its boats here. It currently boasts some nice water sport facilities. The town where it is located – Santa Marta de Ortigueira – is internationally known for its celebration of the Celtic World Festival. In fact, there are very abundant prehistoric remains from pre-Celtic, Celtic and later periods.
