Puerto Calero Marina
Puerto Calero, Canary Islands, Spain
Puerto Calero Marina comprises an elegant and luxurious destination based in a naturally protected enclave on the southern coast of the magical island Lanzarote, Canary Islands.
Puerto Calero Marina has earned a name as an exclusive and dynamic resort due to the many high profile races that take part in the marina every year which feature large audiences and a great number of participants. Some of the highlights of last few years have been the World championship of dominant classes such as the TP52, GP42 and RC44. Furthermore Puerto Calero Marina hosts a sports-fishing contest that will take place for the 20th time in 2012 and the ever-popular César Manrique Puerto Calero Trophy that will take place for the 10th time. The last Volvo Ocean Race winner – Ericsson Round the World Racing Team – chose Puerto Calero Marina from a strict selection of worldwide ports and marinas to base its year-long training centre. Groupama Team and Puma Ocean Racing Team made the same decision and selected Puerto Calero Marina as a place to prepare and train for the Volvo Ocean Race in 2011-2012.
From the very beginning the marina’s infrastructure exceeded expectations. A small shopping area and wide range of restaurants and cafés attract visitors to the marina and 450 berths can accommodate superyachts of up to 60m LOA and 5m draft. The complete range of services offered in the marina aims to meet the daily and nautical needs and requirements of visiting yachtsmen and women. All berths are supplied with water and electricity, and there is a free wi-fi internet access, cash points, a supermarket, car rental, taxis, a fuel dock and laundrette. The boatyard includes a 90t hoist and offers a full range of services, such as scrubbing and antifouling, guardianage, polishing, painting, maintenance, rigging, sail-repair, engine services and osmosis treatment. There are also plenty of leisure, cultural and sporting activities available in the marina.
The quietness, cleanliness and security of the marina number some of the principal motives for choosing to enjoy a holiday or buy a second home in the tastefully designed estate surrounding Puerto Calero. Spectacular views of the Atlantic, a year-long vernal climate and the comfort of the luxury villas provide further justification. Beautiful villas designed by local architects make clever use of the island’s warm sun and fresh breezes.
There are two luxury hotels situated in Puerto Calero: the four-star Costa Calero and the five-star Hesperia Lanzarote hotel, which also offer superb spas and therapy centres. An attractive selection of apartments and villas are available for rent.
Residents and visitors can enjoy and appreciate a selection of fashion boutiques offering range of international brands, such as Hugo Boss, Helly Hansen, Francesco Biasia, Ralph Lauren, Gant, Lacote, Tommy Hilfiger, Armani Jeans and others.
The Arrecife airport is just 15 minutes away and there are plenty of direct flight connections that make Lanzarote easily accessible from Spain and rest of Europe.
Puerto Calero is so much more than a marina; it is the Atlantic Oasis.
