Marina Lanzarote - Arrival Information

Marina Lanzarote is in Arrecife within the Puerto Naos harbour, situated along the length of the harbour breakwater and just south of the commercial port, Puerto los Mármoles. Around this area it is advisable to maintain a 0.5–mile distance from the shore to avoid the reef. Arriving from the north the first landmarks will be the brightly lit power station and DISA Gas towers (and the height of the multi-storey Gran Hotel to the south).

Works carried out to the extend the Puerto de los Mármoles breakwater have modified some of the navigational lights. Please note that the end of the extended breakwater is marked with a green mast, the coordinates and light characteristics of which are 28º 57’ 38.8455”N 13º 31’ 49.6072”W and Fl.G.5s8m1M.

Once round the breakwater, make for the preferred channel mark (red & green post) on the very end of the container wharf Fl.(2+1)R.10s3M.

Arriving from the south the same Gran Hotel will be visible from at least 3M. Passing the airport on the port side, stay clear of the special marks which mark a tanker discharge point.

Puerto de Arrecife will come into view and has a south cardinal mark (Q(6)Fl.15s.10m5M) marking the end of the breakwater. An east cardinal mark (Q(3)10s) identifies the outer edge of the reef and then the port is clearly visible.

Upon reaching the Puerto Naos breakwater the new cruise-liner terminal can be clearly seen at the easterly end of the Puerto Naos harbour wall and this may or may not show on plans as a recent addition. The new cruise-liner terminal is marked at the SW point with red cylindrical tower mark (Fl.R.5s6m3M) and at its NE point with another red cylindrical tower, flashing Fl.(2)R.7s6m3M.

Visible at this point to port and on the shore is the Castillo de San José fort (lights at night emitting from the panoramic restaurant windows overlooking the harbour entry). Four horsemen will then come into view, grazing in the shallows below the fort. The marina access channel rounding SW into the harbour is clearly marked with channel buoys; please REMAIN WITHIN THIS CHANNEL due to shallow water either side. The start of the channel is marked then with the port pillar buoy Fl.(3)R.9s and starboard mark: Fl.(4)G.11s.

Following the channel into the harbour, the successive two buoys flash: Fl(4)R.11s. and Fl.G.5s.  The marina will now be clear with buildings and pontoons clearly visible to port.

The fishing dock on the land side of the harbour where the fishing boats tie up to the wall is marked with green cylindrical tower with light sequence Fl.(3)G.9s.9m.1M.

As before, please ensure that you stay within the marked channel. (Now dredged to minimum 4.3m).
