General - Puerto Sherry Marina is located at El Puerto de Santa Maria, in the bay of Cadiz on the Atlantic Coast of Spain. The facility offers berths, several independent boat yards and a storage operation. I've seen this large marina described in a pilot book as the best equipped marina on Andalucia's Atlantic Coast. But in my opinion it is nothing more than a large parking space for boats. The place seems totally devoid of any character. Enquiries (July 2006) at the marina office and chandlery were treated in a most unhelpful manner.
