The Marina

The new Marina, an up-to-date, safe and well equipped marina, is located in a particularly attractive bay of the port of Brindisi, protected by the Forte a Mare peninsula, a majestic monumental complex of the XV century.
All commercial activities, the bar and the restaurant, the nautical club and other activities all face onto the small square which is the real heart of the Marina.
The slipway with a large yard and the sheds for maintenance and technical assistance complete the services provided by the port.
The geographical location of the Marina of Brindisi is especially interesting and navigation does not present any particular dangers.
In fact, this part of the coast is one of the most beautiful and rich fishing zones of the Mediterranean.
The Marina is the natu¬ral base to reach the most beautiful destinations in Croatia or Greece, or to discover the coasts of Montenegro and Albania.
Remaining on the same coastline, the Italian alternatives (Otranto, Santa Maria di Leuca, Gallipoli and the Ionic Apulia) are easier to reach but just as spectacular.
If the sea offers a lot, the land is no exception. You can also choose short-, medium- and long-haul routes, enjoying landscape, architecture and local wines and food.
The city has always been a place where very different people, cultures and traditions meet and today the Marina is a melting pot of cultures, colours and history.
