The Marina

Communication

It is always a good idea to call the marina in advance before arrival. You may have to use the telephone as they do not always respond to VHF.

Navigation

The Las Palmas Marina (also referred to as Muelle Deportivo) is located within the large commercial harbor. Usually, dock 18 is reserved for visiting yachts. There are laid moorings. The marina is large and comfortable, it can accommodate 900 yachts. The marina office/reception berth (open daily (0700 -1200, 1700-1900) is next to the Fuel berth on the south side of the marina entrance.

Several yachts are anchored offshore, right next to the marina breakwater. This is free.
