Puerto de la Estaca - General Info

Select your download option below


Description:

This port lies on the east coast of the island, towards the northern end. It is easy to reach El Hierro by yacht from the other islands in the archipelago but the return trip can be a little unpleasant due to having to sail hard against the wind.

Entrance Notes and Cautions:

There are no navigational obstacles but keep a watch for outgoing ferries.  The area intended for yachts is in the northern part of the harbor and the entrance is well marked with lights.  While the entrance is wide, it can be cramped with numerous boats on moorings in the middle of the yacht basin.  Note that in a southerly wind, there may be swell in the harbour.

Position:  

27° 46’48″N, 17° 54’06″W (harbor entrance)

    Lovely quiet marina even though there are daily ferry visits. Masses of space since the new pontoons have been installed. (We visited in Oct 2018)
    Nothing but a beach and ferry terminal at Estaca. Valverde is a 15 min taxi ride all up hill in case you were thinking of walking it. Found it hard to find the number to call a taxi so here it is +34 922 551 175. Came in 10 mins.

    Reported 25 September 2017
    A short updates for La Estancia in El Hierro;

    I paid 12.88 for a 10-metre boat for one night here. It included water and electricity.
    Wifi is a bit unreliable but works if you are patient.

    The marina has pontoons for 20 boats against the eastern wall. More space can be used against the southern wall or you can even raft up. Space was not an issue when I was there.
    There are showers (hot) and toilets. Staff is friendly. There is a snack bar in the ferry terminal. There is also a bus station.

    Call port control on Ch. 14 to make sure no ferry is leaving, and port police will help to dock.
