This is an eye sore in the sea, must have been there for years as it is just rusting away. The state of it is nothing to be proud about and its time the authorities had it removed.

We came upon this old boat anchored in a small bay up the coast from Arrecife. There is a lovely coastal path running both to Puerto del Carmen and also in the Costa Teguise direction. For the most part, the path is in very good condition, with designated sections for cyclists and pedestrians. In the Costa Teguise direction, however, the path is uneven in places, and the port area can be tricky to negotiate, as ithe path disappears entirely for a while, necessitating self-confidence to navigate a way round some very large warehouses and across areas of waste ground. A good map helps, and one could stick to the road, of course. The boat was an interesting site on an otherwise uninspiring section of the path.

As mentioned, its not really an attraction as such.
For land lubbers it makes for good photos at sunset, or to catch some bird life fishing for their supper.
For divers im sure this is an excellent location.
