Spain, on Europe's Iberian Peninsula, is really 17 autonomous regions, each with its own geography and culture. Spain has both a North Atlantic and Mediterranean coastline. The rocky Atlantic coast has many fishing ports and not many yacht harbours and is frequented by large and powerful swells. La Coruna, Bayone and Puerto Sherry are three of the most popular harbours for yachts on the Atlantic coast. The Mediterranean coastline is more gentle and forgiving and home to many popular marinas including Almerimar and Palma de Mallorca.
Marinas have pontoon access, with at least a set of basic facilities (toilet, shower, water, and electricity), they are often located inside a harbour or port.
Harbours offer shelter from poor weather, may have a marina, pontoons, a jetty, quay or buoys inside.
A river, bay, cove or channel with history of anchoring. Changing conditions may mean anchorages are not suitable.
Spain is part of the EU and yachts arriving into the EU bust fly the yellow Q flag and visit both customs and immigrations offices on arrival. Passports, crew list and boat registration papers (insurance, tax status, radio licence) will be required. Yachts registered outside of the EU have an 18 months temporary importation permit.
