Anchorages Between Cabo Moraira And Javea

There are several interesting anchorages between Moraira and Javea. They all need to be treated with caution in terms of wind and swell conditions and because of submerged rocks inshore. Note that there is now a traffic separation scheme (TSS) some 9 miles ESE of Cabo de la Nao which should not seriously affect pleasure craft as they are generally closer to the point but be aware of its presence. In bad weather vessels using the TSS may be directed further inshore - skippers should be aware....

Useful anchorage harbour

Two bays, separated by a headland with a tourist development. The western bay, Aguilas, has a small fishing port on its west shore and a small crowded yacht harbour on its north shore. To the east, the other side of the headland, is El Hornillo, an old anchorage with a project for a marina close to the north east. Both bays are open to the ESE and uncomfortable in a wind from this direction but have attractive surroundings. Aguilas was an important Roman port which fell into disuse after...

Harbours marinas and anchorages

In spite of the growth in both the number and size of marinas and yacht harbours there is still a chronic shortage of berths. During a visit in September 2004 it was learned that in excess of 20,000 craft are currently awaiting berths on the Spanish Mediterranean coast. One must check in advance whether a berth is available and note that mobile phones are replacing VHF for this function. Only three marinas out of the 50 or so in this volume admitted they had space for 12 to 15 metre craft....
