Ferries to Spain

Spain is located in the south western corner of Europe and consists of the Iberian Peninsula, the islands of the Balearics and the Canaries and the cities of Ceuta and Melilla located on the northern coast of Morocco.

To quote the official tourism portal for Spain – “Spain has what you want, Spain has what you need”, and as one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, they aren’t wrong.

The land of flamenco and bullfighting, Spain feature a mixture of culture, beautiful architecture, monuments and UNESCO World Heritage sites spread across its wonderful and dynamic cities such as Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia, Bilbao, Seville and Granada.

In addition to the world famous cities that draw the tourists in year after year, some 7000 kilometres of coastline and in particular the Costal del Sol attract sun worshippers in huge numbers.

The country is well known for its gastronomy too and with dishes such as paella, gazpacho, the Spanish omelette, cocido and tapas, Spain undoubtedly has all the ingredients to make your visit an unforgettable experience.

Getting to Spain by ferry is relatively simple with numerous choices worth considering, both direct and indirect.

The direct routes on offer from the UK cover a selection of departure ports in Southern England sailing to a choice of ports on Spain’s north coast. The crossings are quite long and aren’t especially low priced but are operated by the finest fleet of ferries you are likely to come across so the journey is worth the expenditure. You could also choose to travel to Spain from England via France on a shorter and cheaper crossing and then drive the rest of the way.

Spain features numerous connections with the Balearics and Canaries, which are great if you’re using the mainland as a gateway to one of the fabulous islands such as Mallorca, Ibiza, Tenerife and Gran Canaria. Ferries also sail across the Mediterranean Sea from a range of European and North African countries like Italy, Algeria and Morocco.

Spain reviews

  • "First Time"

    We normally use a ferry from Barcelona to Palma. Corsica Ferries was cheaper and took us closer to our final destination in Mallorca. Would definitely use this route again. Comparing catering between the two, Corsica Ferries wins hands down!

  • "An Unfair Decision "

    The journey itself was alright. The ferry is fast, and has a nice balcony at the back. Moreover, seats are very comfortable. However, we were at the port exactly one hour before. At some point it was good, because nowhere, not only on the ticket, is written where we should have been waiting. We had to ask at the ticket office, where they told us to go to the quay to Sardinia - which is, I consider, quite unexpected. But that’s not all. We waited there an hour. No ship. So we turned around and a man was directing other cars to a different ferry that went to Elba. Not only that we, the first passengers who successfully found the right quay, were informed at the last moment, and therefore couldn’t fit on the substitute ferry, we also hadn’t been told what was going on. We had to ask four times before someone finally gave us an explanation. At least we had an occupation for the one hour we had to wait for another ferry... Having said all that, bad things happen. However, I would appreciate if the company could inform their passengers properly, the communication is really poor.
