Small private harbour

An attractive small private harbour with houses built in the local style; it is one of the less oppressive in terms of not being surrounded by high rise buildings and boutiques. The approach and entrance may be problematic - see below - but there is good protection once inside. Facilities are good and there are beaches on either side of the harbour.

Approach and entrance

Cabo Pino lies 8M to the E of Marbella and 4M to WSW of Punta Calaburras lighthouse, both of which are easily recognised. The high white apartment blocks and harbour breakwater can be seen from afar. The partly ruined square, Torre de Cala Honda, located just to W of the harbour will be seen closer in.

The approach and entrance silt and are dredged by the marina to a least depth of 1.5m though there is usually more water than that and yachts drawing 2m and more have entered without difficulty. Enter on the flood, sounding, and pass the Dique de Levante at about one third the distance between it and the Espigon Antiarena; sand builds up off the head of the Dique de Levante. Care is particularly necessary in strong SW-W winds or swell which may effectively reduce depths. If in doubt, call the marina and inquire about depths.

GPS approach

Steer to -$-19 from southerly quadrant and steer for breakwater end (approx. 0.14M).
