Spanish Marinas in August are at their most expensive and it is the
busiest time, but after mid September they become much cheaper and
easier to get berths.
Many yachts over winter in Barcelona there are 2 marinas with a third
being completed, the most popular is Port Vell being an easy walk to
the Ramblas (centre of the city) second is Port Olympic. The marinas in
Barcelona are not so expensive but getting a winter berth can be a
problem. Barcelona is an exciting & vibrant city, from Barcelona
Airport one can get budjet flights to almost anywhere in Europe.
North of Barcelona there are many Marinas most of which are cheaper
than those in the South of Spain. Such as Palamos, Estratit, L'Escala
(not very sheltered), Rosas, Empuriabrava (where we are berthed & the
most sheltered),etc all within easy reach of Barcelona or Girona
Airport, suprisingly some of these are more expensive than Puerto Vela,
Rosas & Empuriabra are not very far from the French border & within
easy reach of the Balearics & Sardinia.
