Entrance

Andraitx is a port of entry to Spain.

See also Spain: Entrance Procedures.

Berthing

The extensive marina on the left/west side of the harbour when entering is the Club de Vela. They also control all of the mooring balls now in the harbour. Anchoring is prohibited except far out at the mouth of the harbour. Moorings at the Club de Vela are med style with a bow line provided. Moorings at the town quay, located across from the Club de Vela & on the east side near many restaurants, are med style where you must drop your anchor and back down on the quay.

Marinas & Yacht Clubs

  • Club de Vela Puerto Andraitx is a full-service marina. It offers everything a cruiser requires for a comfortable stay, albeit at a price. It has a good lavenderia (laundry service), lovely pool, and very good showers. There is a fine restaurant, a cafe, and a small workman's bar.

Anchorages

Sadly, Andraitx has little left for safe anchorage. Previously anchoring was possible in the entrance outside of the channel and inner harbour. The Club de Vela has been granted authority to lay mooring balls in this area on both the east & west sides of the channel & anchoring is now prohibited here. Charges apply for these buoys. Some services to the buoys are provided, including mooring assistance, trash removal & a water taxi service. The inner basin is home to a large fleet of fishing boats which come & go twice daily. Due to these fishing boats, anchoring in the inner basin is permitted only in the case of emergency.

Yacht Repairs and Services

The Club de Vela offers most services for even large yachts. They have a large travel lift and a working hard.
