As this is a multi-storey car park, there are over 750 stalls available, however, it is still an option to reserve a space. There are short-term, long-term and special rates including discounted rates for cruise ship patrons. All rates can be found on the Vinci Park website and rates are also provided when filling out the reservation form.
