This used to be the fishing harbour where yachts were definitely not welcome but recently it has been developed into a 260-berth marina with all the usual facilities. The entrance is quite straightforward but the harbour is subjected to swell from W and SW.
Steer to -0-18 from southerly quadrant and steer for breakwater end (approx. 0.07M).
Marbella with its line of high-rise buildings can be seen from afar but the tall (35m) Marbella lighthouse is difficult to spot amongst them. Close the coast aiming at the east end of the high-rise buildings until the breakwater and/or the lighthouse can be identified. The marina is just over half a mile east of the lighthouse.
Moor to the fuel berth, at the end of the Dique de Poniente immediately to port on entering and obtain a berth at the capitanía which is at the very NE corner of the harbour.
Maximum LOA 15m. Crane, travel-lift, hardstanding etc. Water and electricity on pontoons. Showers etc at base of main pier. Restaurant in marina. Shops in town.
Marina de Bajadilla
