This week, Marinanow invites you to the beautiful Venetian Lagoon to discover a marina immersed in the breathtaking scenery of the Island of Certosa: Certosa Marina Vento di Venezia.


Certosa island is strategically located between the Lido and the city centre, ten minutes away by public transport. From Certosa Island you can discover hidden corners of the Lagoon enjoying the natural landscape that these islands have preserved.

In addition to the most famous islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello, you can reach less known islands of the Lagoon. These includes Lazzaretto Nuovo, Sant’Erasmo, San Francesco del Deserto and Mazzorbo.

The real beauty of Venetian Lagoon lies in the peculiarity of each of its beautiful islands. These are largely untroubled by the flow of tourists. Each has its own history and features: shelters, hideouts, monasteries, hospitals, fortresses, private properties, harbours, hunting areas, fishing reserves or production centres.

As you navigate through these channels and scenery you will enjoy all the nuances and the silence of a unique flora and fauna famous throughout the world.

From Certosa Island you can go far beyond the Lagoon. If you want to take off and head towards the Adriatic ports or the coasts of Istria, Dalmatia and Croatia, Certosa is your ideal starting point.
Just a few miles away you will arrive at Caorle, Chioggia or Lignano. It is less than 50 miles from Rovinj and then Pula, the Kornati and travelling through the ancient Stato de Màrand its seaports to the Bay of Kotor.

Certosa Island

On the island, in addition to the dock, you will find a bar, a restaurant with typical Venetian specialties and a comfortable hotel with all the facilities available to the dock’s guests and anyone who wants to visit Venice in a quiet and green environment.

If you want to visit the island and stay at the Marina or Hotel, do it in the coming weeks.  In the first fifteen days of September, thanks to the proximity to the venue of the Biennale of Venice and the Lido, you will have the chance to visit the Biennale. From August 30th to September 10th, you can attend the 74th edition of the Movie Festival. This will be as usual rich in events and proposals that will make your stay special.

The first weekend of the month you will also be able to attend the famous and spectacular Historic Regatta.


The marina has an ideal location, just a few minutes from St. Mark’s Square and the centre of Venice. This allows people to stay with their boat and enjoy the city, its beauties and cultural entertainment with the enchanting landscapes of its lagoon.

Furthermore the marina has more than 300 moorings. It can accommodate boats up to 60m in length and draft up to 6m. Safe, sheltered and immersed in greenery, it is able to accommodate any type of boat: from small boats to mega yachts, whether sail or motor.


The floating docks are protected by a 4mt wide floating breakwater and well sheltered by the dominant winds. You can take advantage of water and electricity dispensers that can be used with a magnetic key. There is also a 24 hour security service for mooring and surveillance, 7 days a week.

The marina also has a yard equipped with carpentry and mechanical workshops. This lets it offer its clients all the assistance needed for any boat.  This includes hauling and launching, landing and repairs of any type.

Moorings are safe and there are moderate tide currents. These conditions make this marina easy to access in any weather situation.

The dock can be reached by the sea from two ways.  Either passing between the island of Lido and the fort of Sant’Andrea, from the Canale delle Vignole, continuing on the right and passing between the Isle of Certosa and the fort of Sant’Andrea or from Sant’Elena, continuing to the left and crossing the island to the entrance of the Marina.

In addition to permanent moorings, there are a large number of moorings available for transit. This allows people to just pass through who want a quick visit to the island or to Venice.  The city is without doubt one of the most popular and famous places in the world.
