Puerto del Rosario Guide

The Spanish town of Puerto del Rosario lies on the east coast of the island of Fuerteventura in the Las Palmas province in the Canary Islands. Once named Puerto de Cabras (Goat Harbour) the town developed into a major port after becoming the island's capital from La Oliva during the 19th century. The town's current name was changed in 1956 after the church located in the town's centre which is dedicated to the patron saint Virgin del Rosario.

The town's infrastructure is geared more towards industry and commerce rather than tourism, which is not that well established. The oldest part of the town, around the harbour, is where you will find narrow alleys lined with old Canarian style houses. However, one attraction that is worth visiting is the home of the former exiled poet Miguel de Unamuno which is now a museum. Work has been underway for a few years to improve the town's beaches so that they can be awarded Blue Flag status. The town's largest beach is called Playa Blancal and is located to the south of the town.

Ferry services from the town's port depart to Las Palmas, Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Morro Jable.

The city's coastline forms part of the Costa de la Luz (the Coast of Light) and has many popular sandy beaches some of which are in an urban environment and some of more remote and therefore, unspoilt.
