Welcome to Agaete & Puerto de las Nieves
Situated just 1km away is Puerto de las Nieves, the island’s principal port until the 19th century but now better known as the terminal for fast ferries linking Gran Canaria with Tenerife. It's a small place with black pebbly beaches, but the mountainous setting is lovely, with stunning views south along the Andén Verde. The port has a tangible fishing-village feel and the buildings, with their brilliant blue trim against dazzling white stucco, look as though they've been transplanted from some Greek island. The port is well known for its excellent seafood restaurants and fills up with locals on weekends.
