Tenerife

The Port Authority of Santa Cruz de Tenerife manages the Canary islands’ Port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, with its dock in Granadilla, and the Port of Los Cristianos, both in Tenerife, as well as the Port of Santa Cruz de La Palma (La Palma), the Port of San Sebastián de La Gomera (La Gomera) and the Port of Estaca (El Hierro). The gateway to West Africa and a key port for international maritime traffic, it offers allowances for various strategic traffic. The dock at Granadilla, which began operating at the end of 2017, and its adjoining industrial park spanning six million m2, form an efficient logistics and goods redistribution hub. This, combined with the various tax and social incentives on offer, make it an attractive option. The port is operated by Autoridad Portuaria de Santa Cruz de Tenerife. State ports are managed by Puertos del Estado which executes port policy of the government.
