Xabia Marina

Xabia Marina

Xàbia´s first jetty and pier were built in 1871 and many local products were exported through this fledgling port, especially raisins. As this trade grew in importance the establishment of official services such as a Customs office, hygiene control and a marina were implemented.

However, the late 19th Century crisis in the raisin trade hit the port badly and reduced its activity to solely fishing.

When the tourists arrived in the sixties it was felt necessary to develop a marina to cater for the cruisers and yachts that today nestle together in the sunshine by the splendid Club Nautico.
