The approach to Candelaria is straightforward, no dangers.


There are 2 harbors: the old harbour, Puerto de Candelaria, and a marina, Puerto Deportivo La Galera.

Puerto de Candelaria

The old harbour opens to the south and the narrow entrance should be entered with care as the harbour is small and manoeuvering is difficult. Go alongside the outer wall or, if there is no space, alongside one of the larger fishing boats, although one must be prepared for a lot of movement both day and night in this crowded harbour.
