Costa de Valencia Marines are known as the marines of high quality and great variety of service. Besides this, Valencia has become a world centre of yachting sport recently. 2007 the American Cup Competition took place there and since then each respectable yachtsman considers his own duty to moor in one of the ports of Costa de Valencia at least for a day. The other important thing is that Costa Valencia Marines are good departure points to go on a voyage across the Mediterranean Sea: to the Balear Islands, Corsica and Sardinia.
The marine there is considered to be Port America’s Cup. This supermodern terminal for yachts can be called, without any doubt, not even a marine but a well-equipped port. It is situated just opposite La Malvarosa Beach (a famous holiday place in Valencia) in the centre of the Autonomous Port of Valencia. The port was built in 2007 just before the American Cup competition. The next American Cup competition will take place there in 2009. Not very famous but very exciting regattas are held in Port America’s Cup regularly. It can take 700 yachts with the maximum length of 25m.
There are at least two well known marines in the capital of Valencia. They are Club Nautico de Valencia and Valencia Yacht Port. The former was opened in 1903 and is the oldest in the province. The name of this marine guarantees service of high level: from refueling and fresh water supplying up to all attributes of luxury: diving courses, tennis courts, fishing and a restaurant with delicate cuisine. The moorage of the Real Club is one of the largest in Valencia. It can take more than 1200 yachts at the same time with the maximum length of a board up to 60 m. Valencia Yacht Port is not so great as the former one. It can take 500 yachts with the length up to 50 m.
If you travel by yacht along the coast of Valencia you won’t have to worry about mooring. A lot of resorts of the province have got their own moorages. Most of the marines there are of middle size. If you travel by boat from the north to the south along the coasts of Valencia you will find a great variety of moorages: Puerto de Siles not far from Sagunt for more than 500 yachts, Club Nautico Port Saplaya in Alboraya for 300 yachts, Marina Culyera for 100 yachts, Marina Real Club Nautico de Gandia for 400 yachts and Marina Oliva for 350 yachts. Each of them offers standard service. Tha exception is Real Club Nautico de Gandia, the service of which is of high level including a 70-tons-power lift, a yachting school, a maintenance station and a restaurant.
