Arrecife welcomed more than 520,000 cruise passengers last year, making it the Canarian port with the highest growth rate.

The figure improved on the 2018 total by almost 100,000.

Arrecife Mayor Astrid Pérez said the figures show “the strength of Arrecife on the cruise circuit and the need to keep improving the port’s infrastructure,” almost certainly referring to the planned extension of the cruise harbour at Lanzarote Marina.
