5. Gibraltar to Alicante, Spain

22/07/2017 @ 08:00 – 30/07/2017 @ 20:00

If you’re looking for a lively culture, sail down the Costa del Sol in the province of Malaga, a major gastronomic center of Spain that hosts a vibrant contemporary arts scene. On the mainland, you’ll find many museums, restaurants and cultural centers worth exploring while the coast offers some of Spain’s best beaches. Take in some of the 3000 hours of sunshine that shed light while relaxing on the shore.
Among one of the most popular destinations in Spain is Costa Blanca where you’ll find a long stretch (200 km) of pristine beaches, quaint, but lively fishing villages and legendary nightlife. Costa Blanca’s calm waters also make it a great place for a leisurely cruise.

Distance: about 330 miles
Hazards: Strong afternoon sea breezes reaching 40 knots. Lot’s of tiny fish nets. Too much sun, too much sangria!
Highlights: Marbella, Cartagena, Mar Menor, Isla de Tabarca, Alicante

No tides finally! We’re in the Mediterranean Sea! The winds are typically light in the morning and breezy in the afternoon.  Lot’s of places for anchorage, lots of very nice marinas. The final destination isn’t really Alicante – it’s town of Santa Pola just north of Alicante. If the time allows would like to spend a day in Men Mare – beautiful lagoon.
