Reial Club Maritim de Barcelona is a port of entry for Spain. For details see Entrance: Spain.

  • Swimming pool
  • Gym
  • Restaurant - coffee shop

Butane (blue tanks). Can be purchased and empty tanks exchanged at the hardware store Ferreteria Bras. It is on Passeig de Born de Borbo in Barcelonetta a block or two from the Carrer de Maquinista intersection and the Fastnet Pub, near Port Vell marina.


For fresh vegetables, fruit, meat, fish, preserved meats, and cheese as well as frozen products the Barcelonetta fresh market is superb. It is a new purpose-built market and is clean, and closer as well as cheaper than the famous Boqueria market on La Rambla which tends to fill with tourists. It is closed Sundays and every afternoon at about 3 pm. Built into one end of the Barcelonetta market is a good grocery store (Appearances are deceptive, most of the groceries are out of sight - take the elevators on the right). The grocery store is open much later than the market. Around the market are several specialist shops selling Bread, Eggs, Preserves etc.


For breakfast El Quim in the Boqueria. A much cheaper breakfast can be had at the restaurant in the Barcelonetta market (opposite end from the grocery store. For a midpriced dinner try the various Taller Tappas outlets scattered around the city (the best one is at Sta Catarina market), as well as Irati tapas just of La Rambla. For fresh vegetables Fresco, a self-service soup, salad and pizza kind of place with an all you can eat buffet currently priced at €8 weekdays €10 weekends. Their fresh vegetables are excellent (but some restaurants in the chain are better than others).


There is a Marine Chandlery nearby, directions are posted on the RCMB noticeboard. There are also several chandleries close to the land entrance to Port Vell.


Racks are provided for bicycles and guests are not allowed to use bicycles on the piers.



RCMB is secured with electric gates/doors and 24/7 attended reception/nightwatchman governing access. As a 'guest' and not a member you will not be issued with an access card and will have to request admission each time you return. The reception staff is friendly and helpful but only one speaks any English and a little Spanish goes a long way here. Although security appears tight, we interrupted an attempted burglary on board when we were in a slip just inside the marina fence and very close to the public pedestrian bridge. Later one of our bicycles was stolen while locked in the bike racks. The whole seafront area of Barcelona (as well as many other areas of Barcelona!) is prime "ladrone" territory and petty theft seems endemic. We think the thief climbed over the fence and targeted our boat which was "low hanging fruit".


RCMB is ideally located for access to the tourist areas of La Rambla, Barrio Gottic and El Born, and you will probably pay less here than at Port Vell, however you will have to fight your way across the pedestrian bridge to get to town, which is generally crowded with tourists. RCMB is on the Moll d'Espanya opposite the Mar Magnum shopping center just across from the famous La Rambla pedestrian street. Bear in mind that this is a crowded, tourist-oriented area of town and while the views and location are spectacular, slips on the west side, close to the opening bridge in particular are subject to crowd noise as well as the beeping of the pedestrian bridge siren when it opens each half hour during the day. Slips nearer the opening footbridge are also subject to considerable swell from time to time from tugs passing outside the marina.
