Golfe de Valence (Costa Blanca)

Golfe de Valence (Costa Blanca)

Characteristics

Description

N San Antonio cape,  the coast forms the Gulf of Valencia, very large opening, which extends to Oropesa cape, N at 78 MN.

The coast is rocky at first and at lower altitudes, down to E of Denia.

Valencia, one of the largest cities in Spain, built in the middle of a plain, is located 2 NM from the coast.

The port is entirely artificial, it offers all-weather safe shelter.

Currents: Offshore winds rise the water level in the harbor up to 0.3 m . Off the port, the current runs in S.

The bay is uncrowded for mooring because it is dangerous especially in winter, with the winds from seaward.
When necessary, the best anchorage is located approximately 0.5 NM N of the N breakwater of the port of Valencia, by 12 to 15 m.

Au N du Cap San Antonio, la côte dessine le Golfe de Valence, de très large ouverture, qui s'étend jusqu'au Cap d'Oropesa, à 78 MN au N.

La côte est d'abord rocheuse et d'altitude décroissante jusque dans l'E de Denia. 

Valence, une des plus grandes villes d'Espagne, construite au milieu d'une plaine, est située à 2 MN de la côte.

Le port est entièrement artificiel, il offre par tous temps un abri sûr.

Courants: Les vents du large font monter de 0,3 m le niveau de l'eau dans le port. Au large du port, le courant porte au S.

La rade est peu fréquentée pour le mouillage car elle est dangereuse surtout en hiver, avec les vents portant en côte.
En cas de nécessité, le meilleur mouillage se trouve à 0,5 MN environ au N de la digue N du port de Valence, par 12 à 15 m.
