MDL Launches Nautical Guidebook to the Ebro Delta Region in Spain

Posted: 15th September 2017

MDL Marinas will be launching a new nautical guidebook to the stunning Ebro Delta region in Catalonia at this year’s Southampton Boat Show.

A launch event featuring a number of top chefs flown from Catalonia, as well as a presentation of the guide, will take place on Thursday 21 September at 3pm on the MDL Marinas stand, number E52. Visitors to the stand at this time will have the opportunity to enjoy traditional dishes and wines.

Edited by Martin Muth, the guidebook has been created in partnership with MDL Marinas, Ports de la Generalitat, Sant Carles de la Ràpita council and the Terres de l’Ebre Tourism Board. ‘Portbook Terres de L’Ebre’ aims to promote the area as an idyllic destination for cruising, holidays and leisure.

Nicolas Gonzalez, Marina Manager at MDL’s Sant Carles Marina, said: “The unspoilt Terres de L’Ebre region of Catalonia is where the River Ebre meets the Mediterranean Sea and is home to Spain’s rice fields, as well as being a haven for birds and sea life. Set in the natural port of refuge, Port des Alfacs, MDL’s Sant Carles Marina provides the perfect gateway to the beautiful fishing town of Sant Carles de la Ràpita, a truly unique destination for water sports enthusiasts.

“We are delighted to unveil this new guide which highlights some of the many reasons to visit and explore this stunning stretch of coastline and sample the delicious array of seafood which is found in abundance in and around the delta. We look forward to welcoming visitors at the Southampton Boat Show to the MDL stand where they can find out more and be some of the first to grab their copy of the guidebook.”

MDL’s Freedom Berthing members have access to 100 marina destinations across the UK and Europe, including Sant Carles Marina in Spain. MDL Marinas is offering a special weekend package for two in Sant Carles de la Ràpita for only 140€ per person. The package includes two nights at Miami Mar hotel with breakfast, dinner for two from the delicious tasting menu, a one hour guided tour of the lagoon and aperitif at Sant Carles Marina and a traditional Mariner’s lunch at Bon Marisc Restaurant.
