Port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Spanish: Puerto de Santa Cruz de Tenerife) is a port of fishing, commercial, passenger and sports in the Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain, European Union. Located in the Atlantic Ocean. It is managed by the Port Authority of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, which includes all commercial and leisure ports of the Province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife (El Hierro, La Gomera, La Palma and Tenerife islands). Next to this port is the famous building of the Auditorio de Tenerife.
Under Spanish maritime regulation, several ports are bundled on technical, political & historical reasons under the structure of Autoridad Portuaria (Port´s Authority), and full statistics sometimes only refer to Port Authorities, rather than individual ports. However, a brief description of strengths and weaknesses of the Port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife is included here, based on statistical data published by the Port´s Authority:
It has a significant relevance in two categories: Cruise Passengers (#1 of the Canary Islands, 607.000 cruise passengers in 2011, second of Spain, only surpassed by the Port of Barcelona) and in Fresh Fish caughts (ranking #1 in the Canary Islands, although quantitively the latter represents a minor categorie, only 5.400 Tonnes in 2011).
Due to the importance of interinsular maritime transport, it also holds a dominant position in Passenger Transport (1.750.000 in 2011), followed by the Port of Los Cristianos, located in the south of Tenerife and main maritime gateway to the Western Canaries.
Although self-proclaimed as a relevant hub in the Europe-Africa-America maritime freight traffic, transhipment remains as the main weakness of the Port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. According to recent figures, the Port handled in 2011 a total amount of 330.000 TEUS, being the transit a mere testimonial share of it (0,011% of total cargo). Therefore, the Port has been downgraded (when compared to nearby Port of Las Palmas, in the island of Gran Canaria, and excluded from the TEN-T Trans-European Transport Network (selected by the European Commission based ob quantitative criteria, e.g. handling >1% of total European maritime cargo). However, new developments are expected, following the expansion project of the Dársena del Este and the concession for container handling operations extended to OHL[disambiguation needed].
In the port's facilities include a border inspection post (BIP) approved by the European Union, which is responsible for inspecting all types of imports from third countries or exports to countries outside the European Economic Area.
On September 26, 1993 45.000 people went to the concert of American superstar Michael Jackson as part of his Dangerous World Tour. Never before had an American singer done this. All profits were donated to various charities including the new Heal the World Foundation that was set up by Jackson.
Some of the world's largest ocean liners like the Queen Mary 2 (2004) and Queen Elizabeth II (also 2004) have stopped in the Port. The proximity of two international airports backs up its position as base for cruises.
Cruisers visiting the Grand Canary Island Port in the Canary Islands will be treated to a volcanic and mountainous region located in the Atlantic Ocean. Grand Canary, or Gran Canaria, is the second largest island in the Canary Islands, second only to Tenerife. The Port of Las Palmas is an important maritime port, acting as a center for cargo as well as passenger transportation. Because this island boasts varying landscapes and climates, it offers a wide scope of vacation experiences. From beaches to cultural attractions to wildlife, cruisers will never have a shortage of things to do in their Grand Canary Island port of call.
The Grand Canary Island cruise terminal leads passengers to this miniature continent, as it is sometimes called. Many shops, restaurants and recreational options await as you disembark at the Grand Canary Island cruise port.
The Santa Catalina cruise terminal of Las Palmas is the most important port for ferries and cruise ships, so it is always busy here. The cruise terminal can berth 2 large vessels and is located right in the city center, only 100 meters from the Muelle very modern shopping Center City and regional buses leave from the bus station right in front of the terminal. There are also plenty of taxis here. You can easily discover everything on foot.
The port's palm tree-lined streets are clean, well laid out and richly endowed with fabulous floral displays -- the city's gardeners make the most of the balmy climate. And you don't even have to travel far to find a pleasant beach; the honey-sanded Playa de las Canteras lies just northwest of the downtown area and has the distinction of being one of the longest city beaches in the world.
For those in search of action in the shape of more varied bars and restaurants, the port also lies close to the internationally famous Playa del Ingles and the spectacular desert scenery of Maspalomas. Both are popular holiday resorts year-round, so you will find plenty of dining and lazy beach options. Farther afield, visitors can discover quaint old towns like Arucas and Teror or explore Gran Canaria's volcanic interior -- a surreal moonscape of craggy gorges and gaping craters.
Los Cristianos is a town in Spain with a population of approximately 19,000 (2009), situated on the south coast of the Canary Island of Tenerife. Located in the municipality of Arona between the cone of the mountain Chayofita and the greater mountain Guaza. The town centre is around the Los Cristianos bay, but is rapidly expanding inland with modern development. The town is a popular tourist resort and includes a ferry port.
Unlike its bustling neighbour, Playa de las Américas, this town has a history that predates the tourist boom of the 1970s and 1980s. For many years this holiday hub was a quiet fishing village and evidence of its humble origins can still be seen in the typical Canarian architecture of the older buildings.
Nowadays however, the town offers a holiday experience, with two black volcanic sand beaches, a multitude of bars and restaurants and its year round sunny climate. There is a wealth of accommodation to suit all budgets, including hotels, self-catering apartments and timeshare resorts. There are also a wealth of excursions focused around the town's busy port including dolphin and whale watching as well as game fishing trips and party cruises.
Los Cristianos made international headlines in May 2011 when a British expatriate, Jennifer Mills-Westley, was murdered in a busy supermarket in the town. A homeless Bulgarian man randomly attacked the retired grandmother by stabbing her in the neck fourteen times, beheading her, then carrying her severed head out into the street before being tackled by security.
