Cadiz is the first point that we are, a unique city and the oldest in Europe, its marina (Puerto America) is about 20 minutes walk from the center, in Cadiz there are countless things to see and do, but one of my favorites is to go to the market next to the Plaza de las Flores and stock up on the best fish, seafood, ham and tomatoes for little money and then make a good rice or food on board.
Continuing towards the East the next point is Santi Petri, where it is accessed by a river (conditioned by the tides). It is an area of fishermen that has several restaurants and where you usually have to anchor to access with the auxiliary boat. The beaches and the castle are really spectacular and deserve to go with the auxiliary boat to visit it.
The coast that we continue to see has some very nice views, with some inlet that can be visited (Roche) until you reach Bárbate passing in front of Trafalgar and its lighthouse. Bárbate is the mecca of tuna, I do not know the same place where I can taste it in a thousand ways. Its marina is about 20 minutes walk from the center, and both its beaches and its cuisine are really recommended. From this point we have crossed the Strait of Gibraltar, seeing port beaches Bologna and Tarifa, possibly all kinds of marine life and strait currents.
We arrive at the Bay of Algeciras that has several marinas (Algeciras, Alcaidesa or Gibraltar), or to Ceuta, one of my favorite cities for its color and joy, the marina is in the center and allows to visit the market or the multiple shops and restaurants that we will find. Visiting the castle and its defenses and touring the canal with the auxiliary boat is also a highly recommended experience.
From this point we can go to the South, to visit in Morocco Marina Smir, or to the North to visit Sotogrande, Puerto de La Duquesa, Estepona or Marbella, being able to arrive depending on the time available to Benalmádena or Málaga.
Harping from the Royal Yacht Club of Puerto de Santa Maria, the west route has endless unforgettable sites and spectacular landscapes. Depending on the days we have, the skipper will recommend some points or others to visit and enjoy.
Normally the furthest point on this route is Lagos in Portugal, for me it is one of the most beautiful marinas, with a drawbridge to enter and a cobbled town with multiple streets to get lost and eat for little money. One of the best attractions of Lagos is the area of coves that is nearby, and that allows us to visit an idyllic place where you can only reach by sailing.
From this point we can go back to the East, and we find Alvor, a fishing village with a lot of English-style tourist life, the entrance to this site is very conditioned by the tides, so it is not possible to anchor at times . In Alvor there is no marina, so it is anchored and lowered with the auxiliary boat. Very close to Alvor we find Portimao, a large marina with all the services and very comfortable for the amount of facilities it allows.
Albufeira is the next point that we will find, inside a cove, it has some very nice points to dive, the entrance to the marina is surprising, because the entire entrance channel has been excavated in the ground giving the sensation of passing inside an . Albufeira is also a very complete marina with all the facilities and services, although it is not the size of Portimao.
Vilamoura is the next point we found on our route, perhaps one of the best marinas of the entire coast, has a very lively life for all tastes, with multiple shops, restaurants and entertainment venues.
After Vilamoura we find the entrance by a river, to the area of Faro and the Formosa Islands National Park, falling to starboard, we go to Culatra, where to anchor and spend the night next to a fishing village is also something unforgettable. At this point you have to disembark with the auxiliary boat, to reach a very quiet village where you can taste the best fish and stroll along its small streets of sand.
The last point of Portugal is Vila Real de Santo Antonio, within the Guadiana river and in front of Ayamonte. In this villa in addition to eating very well is the ideal place to do typical Portuguese shopping (towels, sheets, etc. ..). From here we go back to Spanish waters, with several places very conditioned by the tides (Isla Cristina and Punta Umbria) until we reach Mazagon, inside the Huelva river and where Christopher Columbus left for the unknown. Mazagon has a pedestrian street where you can walk and taste the best fish, also its beaches are spectacular to anchor and take a bath. From here we continue browsing the Doñana National Park, until finding Chipiona, at the mouth of the Guadalquivir and border between Huelva and Cadiz. The Chipiona lighthouse is the highest in Spain and the fifth in Europe, its origins date back to 140 AD, and it is undoubtedly one of the most beloved images by all seafarers. From this point it is possible to go up the Guadalquivir river a few miles to Sanlucar de Barrameda, also seeing the Doñana National Park in all its splendor.
Continuing for the Atlantic, our next point, already in the Bay of Cadiz is the Villa de Rota, a really nice village to walk and get lost in its streets day or night, with a marina practically in the center of town, which It makes it very comfortable to visit.
This route has many points and places of interest, it depends on the crew and the recommendations of the skipper to choose the best ones in our journey.
