Wednesday 11th November and we visited Gran Tarajal which is situated along the coast, some 45 Kilometres south of the capital, Puerto del Rosario.

It is the Island's second largest town, after the capital and it takes its name from the Tamarisk tree, which is native to the area.

We walked along the seafront promenade, admiring the various statues, on our way to the port/harbour/marina.

Histrorically the town eveolved because of the busy port, which shipped almost all of the agricultural produce from the island. Sadly it is not as important anymore as most shipping in now out of Puerto del Rosario. Also at one time there was a ferry connecting Gran Tarajal and Las Palmas.  This service is no longer operational and there  no ferries use the port. However, the odd cruise ship does visit.

There are roughly 250 moorings which are used by fishing boats, tourists and leisure craft.

There are some interesting sculptures/statues by the port. Having walked along the seafront, upto the port, we had a quick look.
