Port information website

Hi all!

Does anyone know some good websites for information about various ports?
I am currently sailing east coast of Spain, and cant seem to find good info.
I am interested in facilities, services, maintenance, pricing, etc., but all suggestions I can get will be greatly appreciated.

As internet is very poor many places, loading site after site is time consuming and frustrating. Would be great to know where to look!

Re: Port information website

This is a great question and I am most interested in the feedback as well. however at this time of the year, it probably will not elicit much response.
I can only offer advice on some ports in Turkey
There is definitely a gap for someone to create a good portal for this information along the lines of a Trip Advisor.

Re: Port information website

Here in the U.S., ActiveCaptain ( is stepping up to that plate, both on-line through it's own website and off-line via integrations into various plotting products. I think it's meant to be (become) an international resource, but if it's not yet, it needs crowd-sourcing to achieve critical mass.

Re: Port information website

I agree with StuM, should be a good source. You might also see the SSCA (Seven Seas Cruising Association).
