Cruising at Castellón
Castellon Tourist Board is the organisation responsible for the tourism promotion of the Castellon Province. A main objective is to coordinate a tourism promotion and commercialization policy based on a product/market approach, to promote B2B relationship with Castellon companies.
The Castellón Port offers an ideal destination for the cruises sailing through the Mediterranean thanks to its geographical location, its climate, its infrastructure and its growing tourist attractions for visitors. The port infrastructure management for cruises in PortCastelló inaugurated a new berth focused on this vessel traffic in 2011. Located in the East Dike Prolongation, this dock, with a birth of 350 linear meters, 16 meters of draft and a 6,340 m2 parking area for excursion buses and/or shuttle buses, opens new possibilities to the port and the destination.
Several excursions starting from the Port lead the cruise passengers to discover the best of the province. The legacy of the various civilizations that have modelled the landscape of Castellón is presented in all its glory thanks to these excursions, which will lead them to destinations like Peñíscola, one of the three Papal cities in the world, or Morella, the medieval city. They will also get into the depths of the earth by sailing in the longest underground river in Europe, and discovering the most exquisite dishes of the Mediterranean gastronomy.
