Strait of Gibraltar crossing, a unique sailing trip and destination where you otherwise would never go. Beautiful and exciting, it will take you from Estepona, Spain across the infamous Strait of Gibraltar to Ceuta, a renowned stretch of water between 2 continents and their respective mountain ranges on either side.
Sailing trip Estepona to Ceuta
From Estepona it is about 30 nautical miles sailing across the Strait of Gibraltar to Ceuta, this will take under normal circumstances between 5 to 7 hours. There is ample time to have lunch and drinks and we most certainly see dolphins crossing our path.
You don´t have to book a hotel on this trip, you stay on board in Puerto De Ceuta…and of course, when you are in a place like this you want to see or do something, like diving in one of the best spots in Spain. Very close to the port we will stay you find the Royal Walls of Ceuta, the beautiful Arab Baths ( Baños Arabes ). The buildings around the port are in a colonial style and Ceuta, in general, is very nicely kept, quite small and nearly everything is within walking distance, perfect for a short stay. As you walk away from the marina you will find a modern high street with all the latest shops ( tax-free! ), bars and restaurants, it feels like a busy town centre.If you´re interested to go for a dip in the sea its only a short 10-minute walk to the beach from the marina to the southern coastline of Ceuta overlooking the coast of Morocco. If the beach isn’t to your thing there are also a few large swimming pools next to the marina.
