General: Safe marina with 341 berths, but may occasionally get some surge inside if there is a (rare) large southerly swell. There are plans to extend the hard standing.
Approach: VHF Ch9. Keep at least half a mile from the coast before entering Tazacorte. You can anchor just outside the harbour but beware of the rocks near the shore. Larger yachts can arrange to dock in the outer harbour. The wall is sometimes used by cruise ships, so call beforehand by telephone or VHF Ch09 to make arrangements.
Facilities: Toilets/showers/laundry. Fuel: Times may change during the seasons, but always available in the mornings. Ask at the office.
Travel-lift 50T: Contact the marina office. Easy to use for visitors. Electricity/water: Blue 3-pin Eurosocket. 20mm inside water connection. Security: 24/7. Pontoons are locked. Internet: Pay for use wi-fi. Cheap, but the connection is not always good.
Food & drink: Café in marina or walk to nearby village.
To do: Take a skinny dip at the nudist beach behind the harbour wall, or keep your clothes on for the nice walk to the nearby town. Don’t miss The sunset from the high marina wall or the beach.
