Rota is a small Spanish town on the Atlantic coast, in the Andalusia region of Spain, located across the Bay of Cádiz from the city of Cádiz. The town of Rota itself is a major holiday destination, and has a beautiful old town area that is well worth a visit. Rota is also well-connected by road to the main inland population center, and is a quick ferry trip from the Rota marina to the historic part of Cadiz.
There is a marina called Rota Marina (Puerta Deportivo Rota) with lots of facilities. Room for over 390 boats, mooring at pontoons, fuel, electricity, showers, laundry facilities, oil disposal, boat hoist (32 ton), dry storage, mechanic, and electrician.
The Rota Marina is clean, has modern facilities and a lovely atmosphere. The marina is situated at the northern-most end of the Bay of Cadiz, sheltered by La Morena point. Boats approaching the marina from northerly or westerly positions should leave the "El Quemado" buoy to port, sail around three miles in an easterly direction, and then bear north for one mile. Boats coming from the Straits should leave the Bay of Cadiz bifurcation buoy "Ana" to starboard and enter the marina directly on a northerly course.
Maximum draught in the marina is 4.5 meters.
Tidal range is 3.6 meters.
