|Operated by||Port Authority of Las Palmas|
|Annual cargo tonnage||154,000 (2016)|
It was not until the later part of the 19th century when the construction of a small harbor in order to facilitate the agricultural exports of the southern part of the island was proposed. Works initiated following the 1917 crisis during World War I and, in 1927, an expansion was commissioned, although it would not take place at the time. Later in the 20th century a mammoth project that would make the port bigger than Las Palmas' was ultimately shelved in the 1970s.
It is operated by the Port Authority of Las Palmas. As of 2020, its activity focuses on the handling of solid bulk.
