Agaete ferry port in Gran Canaria connects you with Santa Cruz de Tenerife in Tenerife with a choice of up to 42 ferry crossings per week. The duration of the Agaete to Santa Cruz de Tenerife crossing is from 1 hour 20 minutes and the crossing is operated by Fred Olsen Express.
Agaete is a small commune on the province of Las Palmas, one of the towns that are located on the west coast of Gran Canaria. The only ferry route departing the port is to Santa Cruz de Tenerife on the island of Tenerife, lasting just over an hour.
Traditional docks lined with fishermen prompt copious restaurants serving delicious seafood, much to the benefit of the frequent tourists that visit the sleepy town to enjoy the laid back atmosphere and charming architecture. Simplistic houses donned in an all-white coat are required by law, varnished with a green or brown door in the centre or a blue door by the port, creating an eminent glow throughout the quaint streets and stylish harbour. The appearance of Agaete suggests Greek heritage, yet the town is authentically Spanish, boasting a warm climate and a natural habitat for growing fruit.
For the majority of the year, Agaeta is a sleepy town operating on a laid back
level of carefree relaxation, though it does have its lively moments; a fiesta festival takes place in the community every August, where the locals culminate in a sea of religious energy, offering food and drink to anyone who wishes to join the celebration. A music festival occurs later in the month for those who wish to let loose in the summer sun
The municipality is very small so can be covered entirely on foot.
Explanada Puerto de Las Nieves, Agaete CP 35489
