Facilities for berth holders


This region has a very moderate climate all year round with very little rain and more sun hours than anywhere in Europe. Therefore it is popular wintering marina for the live-aboard community. Almerimar is a holiday village whilst not the most attractive of stopovers it is inexpensive. The boats are relatively close together and surrounded by holiday homes, there is no breeze, it does not cool down at night.

Moor: access in all weather but difficult by SW wind. Some places can become uncomfortable by SW wind. The entrance is more sheltered than it looks but totally exposed to the south. On arrival, tie up at the Control Tower/Fuel dock for berth allocation.

1100 berths, 700 of them for transship yachts max LOA: 60 m; max draught: 6 m

Numerous restaurants for every taste and a large supermarket. The airport of Almeria is easy to reach by bus (from El Ejido) or taxi.

Very affordable, and there are a lot of people who winter here for the price.  Very active live aboard group with a VHF net M-F.  The town is touristy, but not overly so.  Large supermarket a short walk from berths.  One oddity - there were two stalls in the men's restroom with the toilet paper roll located outside the stalls next to the hand drier.  I assume you're supposed to guess how much paper you need and take that much with you into the stall.  I just brought my own roll.

Contrary to the info listed for this marina, we had a nice breeze and the evenings were cool, although this was only late May.  The town of Almeria is definitely worth a visit with lots of fountains, parks, and of course a cathedral and a castle.  It takes two busses to get there, but not a big deal.
