Puerto America Marina, Cadiz, Andalucia, Spain

We would like your comments - If you would like to add to this report or submit your own report on a marina, harbour or anchorage not covered in this guide so far please visit our contact page for our email address. Digital photos are also very welcome.

General - Puerto America Marina is located at Cadiz, in the bay of the Cadiz on the Atlantic coast of southern Spain. It is run by EPPA, the Empresa Publica de Puertos de Andalucia. Puerto America Marina offers berths, boatyard and a storage operation. Sadly the marina does not enjoy an attractive position set as it is amongst extensive commercial facilities adjacent to the container yard. However Cadiz is a city well worth a couple of days exploring. My own recommendation is to stay in either Rota or El Puerto de Santa Maria and visit Cadiz by ferry or bus.
