Puerto America Cadiz Marina, Costa de la Luz

Cadiz is an ancient city which was founded more than 3,ooo years ago by the Phoenicians and has always been steeped in naval history. Maritime trade led to great wealth for the city which can be seen in the scale and grandeur of its buildings. It is still a huge base for both the Spanish and American navy. Some say that Cadiz is the oldest European city.

The city provides all that you would need with shops, supermarkets banks and entertainment. Communication is good by road, rail and regular buses. The nearest airport is at Seville which can be reached by rail or bus. There is a ferry service to the Canary Islands.

The city is also popular with tourists and as well as the culture and architecture many come for the beaches and the cafe lifestyle of the restaurants and parks.

it is a bit of a hike from the marina to the city which is about 20 minutes on foot but a taxi can be ordered at the port office. The marina is modern, secure and well sheltered. The marina is owned by Empressa Publica de Puertos de Andalucia who have a common pricing policy for all of its marinas on this coast.

The Approach

The approach is best made along the Canal Principe which is buoyed and well lit. Many local yachts cut inside but be aware of the shoals of Los Cochinos and Las Puercas. If the is a large swell running then definately stick to the channel. Beware of the northern breakwater which is unlit but does have a green lit buoy just off it.

The Entrance

Once round the outer breakwaters the marin entrance is to starboard about 400 metres to the southwest. The entrance is a little tight especially if manouvering in high winds. There is no reception berth so moor up to the fuel berthon the port side of the entrance.

Shelter is good but the western most pontoons are usually the ones used for visitors and are susceptible to wash from passing commercial traffic
