Ports of Orio

Fishing port:

Description Orio is a typical estuary port, with a dock on the eastern bank of the river Oria, where the town is. Historically, the entrance to the port has posed serious difficulties as it is open to the NW, N and NE. Today, this problem has been solved by constructing two piers facing N, to make it easier to enter, although the channel leading up the river is still quite narrow and dangerous. Coordinates: l= 43-16, 2 N L= 02-07,6 W Tidal range: 4.5 m Entrance: Width: 40 m Depth in LLW: 5 m. 3 m in the narrow channel that is difficult to navigate.
