The Puerto Industrial de Granadilla is a port located in the municipality of Granadilla de Abona in the southeast of the island of Tenerife (Spain). It is a complementary work of the port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and intended to provide necessary facilities to different types of traffic, attract new traffic and cover increases.[1] It is the largest industrial port of the Canary Islands.


The port has a contradique of a length of 1,150 meters. The Exterior Dock extends longitudinally at 2,512 meters. The Muelle de Ribera has 160 meters with a draft of sixteen meters and an associated esplanade of approximately fifteen hectares.

The second section of the Ribera dock is currently under construction, which will result in the materialization of another 160 meters of quay. It is expected that the port can count on a regasification plant in the year 2020.[2]

With the entry into operation of the Port of Granadilla, the Port Authority of Santa Cruz de Tenerife manages six ports of general interest for this maritime province; those of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Los Cristianos and Granadilla on the island of Tenerife, and those of San Sebastián de La Gomera, Santa Cruz de La Palma and La Estaca, the latter on the island of El Hierro.[3]
