Small shallow harbour

A very small harbour some 3'/2M to E of Málaga. Only suitable for yachts and vessels drawing 2m or less - and there is not much room for manoeuvre. The narrow entrance tends to silt up and is occasionally dredged to 4m. It is open to W. It would be uncomfortable to remain there in strong SW-W winds and difficult to enter or leave in those conditions. As of January 2002 it is understood that this port is to be used in daylight hours only and there is also a draught restriction of 2m on entering craft.

Approach

There is a large, grey cement factory just to the E of the harbour.

GPS approach

Steer to -025 from a southerly quadrant and steer for breakwater end.

Approach a point 200m to NW of the entrance of the harbour, sounding continuously. Leave three small red buoys to port and four small green buoys to starboard. Leave the head of the Dique de Levante 10m to starboard.

Berths

Berth stern-to the quay or pontoon with anchor or mooring buoy from the bow.
