Guide to the sports ,marinas and harbours of Gran Canaria

With 236 kilometres of coastline, year-round sunshine and waters ranging from 18ºC in winter to 23ºC, Gran Canaria and especially the south coast, is an idyllic place to berth a yacht or just mess about in a boat.

The island has a number of ports and harbours for local fishing boats as well as several dedicated sports marinas. Watersports clubs, centres and equipment centres all around the coast provide a full service for water sports lovers.

Gran Canaria’s long relationship with the sea can be seen in its long history of sporting excellence.  The island has produced over 30 World Sailing Champions and 6 Olympic gold medallists, and several world famous sporting events are held here. For example, the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers held in November where over 200 yachts leave the harbour in Las Palmas on route to Rodney Bay in Santa Lucia. The 2,700 nautical mile route takes between 12 and 40 days.

Sailors who pass by Gran Canaria can take advantage of low taxes to stock up on provisions, parts and fuel at lower prices than in other European Countries.

In the near future, Arguineguín harbour, currently home to a mixed fishing and leisure fleet, is to be divided and enlarged into a dedicated fishing harbour and a new sports marina. This will make Arguineguín, already a popular property area, into an idyllic location for boat owners.
