Agaete

The quaint town of Agate is situated on Gran Canaria’s North-West coast, surrounded with magnificent unspoiled landscape and dramatic volcanic backdrops, close to the natural park of Tamadaba. The town centre offers historical buildings, botanical gardens and a few amenities, but the main tourist hub, can be found at Puerto de Las Nieves. Here, you will find a little fishing port beside the black sand beach and pretty little white washed buildings with local restaurants and cafes where you can sample the fresh fish and other regional specialities.The Marina is host to a regular ferry service operating from the port to Tenerife and the trip takes just one hour.
