Tenerife has a major port in its capital city of Santa Cruz (www.puertosdetenerife.org) which is currently the only port of entry for goods ships and passenger liners. Plans for a second port, in Granadilla in the south east of the island, met strong local opposition on ecological grounds but should be completed by 2018.

Cruise ships

Tenerife is a popular stopover for transatlantic cruise liners, including the QM2, with more than 500,000 passengers disembarking into Santa Cruz in 2015.
