“Vento di Maestrale”, your Marina in Trapani
"Vento di Maestrale", a small but well equipped and furnished marina, is located just in front of the entrance of the Trapani port. A privileged position, both for its proximity to the services offered by the commercial port and for the ease of access to the historic town of Trapani, where you will be able to visit its gorgeous churches, its typical streets, its several local restaurants, beaches and coves for swimming.
Our pontoons, well-sheltered from winds in order to ensure safety and comfort, are all equipped by multifunctional columns with water and electricity. The bottom reaches a maximum depth of 4-5 meters. Landing places are also available, ideal for dinghies and small motor boats.
Our Marina also offers several services, specifically made to provide a warm welcome and a pleasant stay: from the cafè to the minimarket, from several toilets to showers, from the security guard 24H (with video surveillance) to transfer service from/to airports and other places, from bike hire to Internet wi-fi, etc.
The Marina “Vento di Maestrale” is ideal for short passages or long stops. It’s the right place from where you can easily reach most of the amazing places in the Mediterranean and in the West Sicily: the Egadi Islands (Favignana, Levanzo and Marettimo), Pantelleria, Ustica, San Vito Lo Capo, the Nature Reserve called “Lo Zingaro”, Castellammare del Golfo, Marsala, Menfi, Lampedusa, the North African coast, etc.
