Puerto Calero is one of my favorite locations on the island. It has the amenities of the marina on its door step but the area still maintains a residential vibe. It is only a 15min drive from the international airport, and the larger tourist town of Puerto del Carmen is just along the coast. There is also a brilliant coastal walk between the two areas, and if you don´t fancy the walk back you can jump on the water taxi!
Sailors have been berthing their boats here for over 35 years, creating a sailing hub for the Canary Islands. Sometimes providing the last stop before crossing the Atlantic. The marina can accommodate super yachts from all over the world to small weekend use tenders, giving the marina a diverse clientele.
The restaurants, bars and shops cater to all tastes, not just attracting the boat crowd but tourists and residents from all over the island. You have Amura which is a fine dining restaurant with colonial style architecture that sits prominently on the waters edge, making it the ideal wedding venue. Pappadella serves homemade pastas and delicious pizzas, to eat in or take away. You can eat Spanish cuisine at Taberna de Puerto, they specialise in Paella which can be shared among friends. Café Milla offers ice cram and cake delights. Puro Gusto make the best salads on the island, with delicious local produce. The tuna tartar at the Japanese is one of the best I´ve ever tried and if you have room, the fried ice cream is something special! These are to highlight but a few of the many restaurants along the harbor. There are also many bars to relax and enjoy a cocktail to the small hours. The boutique shops sell high end brands and cosmetics to sportswear and shoes. There is also a Pharmacy and super market meaning Puerto Calero has everything you might need.
Many boating excursions leave from the port, you could dive beneath the water on Submarine Safaris sub or sail to Papagayo on Catlanza´s catamaran. For the very adventurous you could even learn how to sail.
There is a four star and a five star hotel in Puerto Calero. The Costa Calero Hotel is a large all-inclusive hotel with a large spa that is open to non-guests, and well worth a visit. The Hesperia Hotel enjoys a front line position, it has a sliver of a black sand beach with a floating pontoon that is ideal to jump off and open to non-guests.
A new sport center and recently opened, it has a large lap pool, many tennis courts, fully fitted gym, lots of classes and even a creche.
Within the area of Puerto Calero there are mansions, villas, duplexes, apartments, complexes and developable land for sale. These are all protected by Puerto Calero’s own security guards that patrol the area, making it such a safe place to live. Along with all the amenities that are within walking distance, it really does make Puerto Calero the perfect location to buy property and live.
