Default Portimao (Portugal) - dock to town centre

Please does anyone know where ships/tenders dock? Is it walking distance from the town centre?

Indeed it is a short walk into town from the dock/port.
Let me know if you would like an itinerary if you plan to spend the day walking around Portimão. Have a great cruise!

Ooh, yes please! A lot will depend on the weather. I'd thought of going to Selves for an hour or two then the rest of the day back in Portimao, where I'd like to see the museum. Any recommendations/itinerary would be much appreciated.
