Passe the northern tip of the Island of Brava and you will see a kind of brick chapel which is the lighthouse of Jalonga. The port of Furna is just below a the tiny cove very protected from the predominant NE winds. The main port of the island, less than three kilometers from Nova Sintra, Furna is known as a quiet bay.
There is a Harbourmaster here and it is permitted to visit even after clearing out. The Harbour office is the first building on the right on entering the town. The entrance is via stairs at the back. Normal papers and passports are required. The office is not normally open at weekends, so if planning to clear out then, pay your clearing fee on the Friday. There does not appear to be a problem with security here.
It is not recommended to enter the harbour at night.
Anchor: to the west of the the slipway with two anchors out to the southwest, plus a stern line ashore (with anti-chafe protection) to the sea wall. The holding is good, sandy. Dinghy landing is at the quay in the north part of the bay, but it is subject to some swell at high tide. It is not permitted for yachts to use the ferry dock.
Due to the high mountains the harbour is usually sheltered from most wind directions.
