Marinas in Andalucia

Along the coast of Andalucía there are numerous marinas, ideal for both those with yachts who need a berth, and for those who simply enjoy the atmosphere of a harbour.

Accessibility, safety and an ample range of complementary services are the main characteristics of Andalucían ports and marinas. Many of them already have large berths, as well as yacht clubs, sports facilities, boat and equipment rental, hotels, casinos and shopping areas, plus fuel, workshops, cranes and winter hangars.

There are about 30 marinas on the Andalucían coast, which means that Andalucía has an enviable berthing capacity that places it at the head of Europe in this type of installation. Most of the marinas are located on the Costa del Sol.

The Costa del Sol has a wealth of yacht marinas and harbours, many with over 1,000 berths (including Benalmádena and Puerto Banús). The latter, located just beyond Marbella is Spain's answer to St. Tropez where some of the most spectacular gin palaces and luxury yachts are moored. There are numerous sailing clubs located at the Costa del Sol's larger harbours, all of which offer tuition and classes. Both crewed and uncrewed yachts can be rented, although you need a skipper's certificate or a helmsman's overseas certificate to rent an uncrewed yacht.

Despite the large number of marinas, berths can be difficult to find in summer in some areas, although temporary berths can usually be found on public jetties and harbours. Between May and October there are several large regattas held in the Bay of Cadiz. For more information about marinas and competitions, contact the Spanish Sailing Federation, C/Juan Vigon 23, 28003 Madrid.

Many of the Marinas in Andalucia have European Blue Flags.
