Puerto Calero 

Puerto Calero is a purpose built, classy upmarket marina village. Some of the boats in the marina will be eye-popingly expensive! There are some nice café/restaurant/bars alongside the waterside.

A water taxi will take you at modest cost to the harbour at Puerto del Carmen.

A tourist curiosity here is the Yellow Submarine, exactly what it says on the tin. I have been on this and whilst I expected some sort of submarine look alike with a glass bottom (a glass bottomed boat if you like), in fact it is the real deal and does seal the hatches and submerge. It is all well controlled with a safety boat above. Nevertheless, it is a strange feeling when they shut the hatch and dive. My hat is off to genuine sub-mariners.

To be honest, the submerged sights were a bit underwhelming. A few non-descript fish and a sunken (probably on purpose) “wreck”. Still, it was worth it for the experience. Yellow Submarine ‘T’ shirts and your photo available.
