El Varadero Dock

El Varadero is the part of the old fishing village that houses the dock of Puerto del Carmen. Probably the most emblematic place on this touristy coast, this is the heart of Puerto del Carmen. It is located in La Tiñosa, as the old quarter was originally named. The old fishing dock is still alive with the activity of the men and women who work hard at sea to bring us the delights of this coast, with a rich variety of fish and seafood.
