This section includes the Greater Bay Cities of Hong Kong S.A.R., Macau S.A.R., Zhongshan, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Nansha, Dongguan, Guangzhou and Nansha. The Pearl River Delta features world-class marinas in Zhongshan, Nansha and Shenzhen, with Zhuhai up and coming.
The region is not open yet to free movement of yachts, but Macau S.A.R. and Guangdong Province are facilitating the first ‘free exercise’ movements of yachts. The Guangdong Yacht Tourism Association is an avid advocate to open up the Pearl River Delta for regional yachting.

This new marina is on the banks of the Xijiang River, on Modao Island in Zhongshan City, Guangdong Province. It is the first direct sailing gateway between Zhongshan and Macau, and the first private marina in Guangdong Province to house CIQ and Port Clearance.
It is 52nm from Zhongshan to Hong Kong and 17nm to Macau. At the time of publishing the 6th Edition, the clubhouse with dining and recreational facilities was scheduled to open in Q4 of 2019. Phase II of the development will include an additional 78 wet berths, hotel accommodation and boat retail.
As we update this website in March 2021, there is still no sign of an online presence – other than on the project architect’s website. A postponed opening due to Covid-19?
