Marinas and Private Jet Terminals in Bilbao

By Chris Boyle

Marina

The beautiful Bay of Biscay coastline makes for some great sailing, with southern France and northwest Spain within easy reach.

Bilbao Airport is often seen as a tourist destination in its own right, thanks to its stunning new terminal from Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, which opened in 2000.

GETXO MARINA (EL ABRA GETXO)

Located north of Bilbao on the Bay of Biscay, Getxo is a small town that forms part of metropolitan Bilbao.

Getxo Marina has a total of 827 berths, of which five are available for yachts of 18 m (59 ft), the maximum length accommodated at the marina. The marina is divided into two areas: shops and recreation (restaurants, aquarium, coffee shops) and the technical area for repairs and maintenance. The local town of Getxo also has plenty of amenities, including a cinema, and the city of Bilbao is only 15 minutes drive away.

Marina Club Maritimo del Abra

Located in a suburb of Getxo, Las Arenas, the Marina Club Maritimo del Abra is an historic yachting club featuring a host of amenities and services.

The marina has 300 berths with space for yachts up to 25 meters (82 feet). All the berths are equipped with water and electricity, and the club has a restaurant, disco, bar and library. For sports fans there are plenty of facilities, including squash courts, swimming pools and a gym.
