Discover a Slice of Paradise at Port Denia Marina & Shipyard

By Jenna Mehdi

In the charming Spanish town of Denia, Port Denia shipyard and marina offers a safe, secure and full-service superyacht haven for those looking to explore Spain’s sublime east coast.

Just 45 miles from the vibrant island of Ibiza, and in close distance from two international airports, it is not difficult to see the appeal of Denia’s prime location. This cosmopolitan Spanish town serves as a convenient stopover point for yachts heading to or vacating the Mediterranean, and is able to offer visitors any range of maintenance works before moving on to their next destination.

Offering stern-to berths up to 65-metre LOA and a 138-metre alongside berth, Port Denia is truly ‘superyacht-ready’. Services include 1250 amps of shore power, as well as crucial in-water refit and maintenance work paving the way for the marina’s ‘technical’ status. Meanwhile, 24-hour security and the marina’s convenient location next to the local police station ensures guests can enjoy utter peace of mind as to their vessel’s security. 

The marina, originally built to complement the superyacht shipyard, has now become a popular visitor destination in its own right. If you’re looking to undergo any measure of maintenance work however, the first-class equipment and facilities at the adjoining shipyard are the real attraction here. This refit, maintenance and repainting facility is capable of servicing yachts up to 1200 GT, and is equipped with two 80-metre haulout slipways, a 150 GT travel lift, and extensive dry dock and specialist workshops. 

While berthed at Port Denia, the attractions of the local town are sure to appeal to both guests and crew alike. Celebrity chef Quique Dacosta’s namesake restaurant, serving locally sourced ingredients and three Michelin Stars, is a popular attraction bringing the global superyacht elite to this historic Spanish town. A UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy with blue flag Costa Blanca beaches, Denia offers a calming reprieve from the more bustling destinations in the Med, while offering all of the beauty and charm. 

Enjoy an afternoon of golf at La Sella, or a relaxing massage and light lunch at the adjoining 5* Marriott Hotel. Indulge in the local cuisine and vibrant nightlife, or enjoy the breathtaking views atop Montgó mountain. Whatever it is you’re looking for, the hidden gem of Denia truly has something for everyone.
