Main ports of Tenerife

Los Cristianos Hafen Teneriffa
The only way to reach the neighbouring island of La Gomera is by boat from the port of Los Cristianos

Tenerife's harbours and marinas are not just anchorage spots. The ports have always been extremely busy places with good infrastructure, as they are hubs for trade and transport. In some cases, they are the largest markets where local products have been exported and international food products imported. Cruise ships, sailing ships, yachts and boats also dock here.

A large number of tourists reach the island via one of the two airports, no less people come to Tenerife on one of the cruise ships. Not to forget, the ports of Tenerife also attract visitors with a unique view of the vastness of the Atlantic Ocean.

In good weather the view reaches as far as Gran Canaria, La Palma or La Gomera and also whales and dolphins are sighted off the coast. During your holiday in Tenerife, if you are not coming by sailing boat anyway, visit one of the two commercial ports or one of the marinas for pleasure boats and y:


1. Los Cristianos

The most important and busiest port on the island is Los Cristianos, where ferries leave for the other Canary Islands. The port is especially important for the neighbouring island of La Gomera, which is the closest to the island, as there is no other way to get to the island.

The harbour is only 15 minutes by car from the airport Tenerife South (Reina Sofia). Tourist boats, which organise tourist excursions, also depart from Los Cristianos.


2. Santa Cruz

The port near the island's capital, Santa Cruz, is the second largest port on the Canary Island, where hundreds of cruise ships bring tourism to the island every day. But the port is also an important transhipment point for import and export in the Canary Islands. Tenerife is connected to Gran Canaria and important Spanish ports such as Barcelona and Cádiz via the port of Santa Cruz.

The port is 10 kilometres away from Tenerife North Airport.


3. Marina Tenerife (Santa Cruz)

The marina is located close to the centre of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, is well protected and has around 220 moorings for boats up to 16 metres. Visitors can also drop anchor here. In the marina area you will find everything you need for an anchoring break: Washrooms, drinking water, electricity, security, mechanic service.


4. Marina del Atlantico (Santa Cruz)

Right in the centre of Santa Cruz, the largest marina project in the Canary Islands has been created, with currently around 400 berths, its own restaurant area, numerous shops, dry dock, workshops. Boats up to 80 metres long can moor in the marina. The marina is the starting point for many regattas and Atlantic crossings.

5. Puerto Colon

Located in the south of Tenerife, Puerto Colón is a real tourist magnet given its good infrastructure with many hotels, restaurants and bars. Not least because of the sandy beach directly at the harbour. There are a total of 360 berths and around 250 dry berths in the harbour. Puerto Colón is located between Las Américas and Costa Adeje. Especially popular are water sports activities and boat trips where you can watch whales and dolphins in the wild.


6. Marina del Sur (Las Galletas)

Marina del Sur is located in Las Galletas, in the municipality of Arona, in the south of Tenerife. Las Galletas is a small, traditional fishing village where tourism, without attracting crowds, mixes with the local population in a unique way. Marina del Sur Tenerife is surrounded by an exceptional natural environment and offers a high quality infrastructure with many boat services and a wide range of water sports.


7. San Miguel de Abona

The sports port of San Miguel de Abona in the south of Tenerife is well connected - only a few minutes away from the South Airport and nestled between two golf courses. A good place to arrive and relax, with numerous service facilities and more than 350 berths for yachts up to 30 metres long.


8. Los Gigantes

Anchoring at probably the most spectacular stretch of coast in Tenerife: from the Marina Los Gigantes you can see the cliffs of the same name. More than 350 berths for smaller and larger yachts, as well as a service station and technicians, good connections and opportunities for going out not far from the port.


9. Marina Garachico

The only port in the north of Tenerife is Garachivo. Opened only a few years ago, you will find a charming, well-protected marina not far from the historic quarter with almost 150 berths for yachts up to 15 metres and service facilities such as water and electricity supply, security service, crane service


10. Marina Radazul

One of the largest anchorages on the east of the island in the municipality of El Rosario: more than 200 moorings for all types of yachts (up to 20 metres), with all the technical facilities for maintaining the boats and the infrastructure for guests. Those who wish to anchor here for a while can easily reach Santa Caruz, just a few kilometres away.
