Map of Fishing Spots in Tenerife with Photos and Video
Where to Fish in Tenerife? Choosing where to fish is the most important part of success in catching fish. First, you have to buy a fishing license (permit), then study the map of places where fishing is allowed. And after that, you need to analyze and study the places that you like. In this article, I will tell you about the known hunting points among local fishermen and show their pros and cons. I hope that my experience will help you.
1# Playa Las Salinas El Parsiso
Located in the southern part of the island of Tenerife near the tourist area of Las Americas (15 minutes by car).
2# Playa Rosalía San Juan
One of the most successful places for fishing. The administration allows fishing even in the port from 05-00 to 23-00. The fish are constantly feeding near the shore. On the shore, among the rocks, you can catch small crabs for bait. This is an excellent bait for fish such as la vieja, which can weigh up to 2 kg.
3# Playa Los Callados Los Cristianos

The famous seabass fishing spot. Opposite it, in the ocean, there are cages where lubina is industrially bred. The fish peck well during the feeding hours in the cages (early morning). Also, some of the fries end up in the ocean and become wild fish. I often snorkel in these places with a snorkel, mask, and flippers. The beautiful underwater scenery (huge rocks, caves, algae, and pits) and the abundance of fish are amazing. Visibility underwater can be up to 30 meters.
4# Playa de Ajabo Callao Salvaje
A unique place. Near a wide breakwater mall, which separates the landscaped beach. Lots of shade from trees and fixed umbrellas, showers with fresh water, benches for relaxing, and a small bar.
5# Playa Los Perros Las Maretas
The closest town to this beach is Los Abrigos (2 km). The car must be left along the road by the side of the greenhouses. Then you have to walk 800 meters along the trail to the ocean. Fishermen leave their equipment on the basalt spit.
6# El Balito
This region is near the town of Callao Salvaje. It is a former small fishing port, there are many abandoned buildings, and the canopy, the platform, and the stairs (the descent to the ocean) remain. The road is pretty bad. The distance from the highway is about 1 km. By car no problem to get there.
7# Playa del Medio Port Granadilla Abona
The region is near a huge industrial seaport. The port is not fully operational. It is clean and the beach is pebbly. You can catch trophy sea bass and madrigal with a fishing rod and underwater gun. Good enough access by car.
8# Caleta del Sordo El Tajao
A place for experienced fishermen. Difficult access to the parking lot. Open terrain. No protection from wind and sun.
9# La Cascada El Marazul
To get to the hunting area, you have to walk through the entire area of the Hotel Marazul. There is a guard on duty at the entrance. All kinds of hunting and fishing are possible. This place is often visited by divers.
10# Punto de Buceo Muelle de El Poris
Good location. Far from the tourist area (30 kilometers). Catch fish can be from the pier. Near city infrastructure. Friendly communication among fishermen. A good place to learn and beginner fishermen. Visual inspection and testing of fishing gear.
11# Pier Alcala Tenerife
This is the old pier and lighthouse. You can fish both to the left and right of the pier. Large boats were moored here, so the depths are from 10 meters. Fishy place. There is a stone bench. It is convenient to sit and place your things. There is even a garbage bag.
12# Punta de Abades Tenerife
This area is famous for fishing. Many large specimens were caught in Abades. Sufficiently normal car park next to caravan parking. You have to walk for 20 minutes.
13# Palm Mar
A secluded location from major cities. Good access. A large number of rocky places for fishing. Evening fishing is possible in the area of the beach. At a distance of 100 meters from the shore are often huge fish Peta (up to 40 kg)
