Harbor is the port of Havana, the capital of Cuba
, and it is the main port in Cuba (not including Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, a territory on lease by the United States
). Most vessels coming to the island make port in Havana. Other port cities in Cuba include Cienfuegos
and Santiago de Cuba
The harbour was created from the natural Havana Bay which is entered through a narrow inlet and which divides into three main harbors: Marimelena, Guanabacoa, and Atarés.
Ensenada de Marimelena
The town or Regla
on Ensenada de Marimelena is a commercial and industrial suburb with the Galainela shipyard, ENA drydock, until recently operated as a joint venture with Curacao CDM, and the Navy's shipyard at Casablanca. Other docks include the Havana Container Terminal (TCH), the Ñico Lopez oil refinery, formerly a Shell refinery; and flour and wheat mills and aviation fuel depots.
Ensenada de Guanabacoa
Least developed of the harbor arms.
Ensenada de Atarés
The harbor in Old Havana
offers cruise ship terminals, shipping and vessel repair services operated by Asticar.
