This is a fishing haven of scarce dimensions some 7 kilometres from the city centre. The Port of La Estaca was declared of General Interest in May, 1888. The port, that dates back to the beginning of the XIX century is on an outcrop, partly submerged, used from the beginning as the place to disembark. The port of La Estaca is the main nexus of union of the island with the outside world. It has an inner harbour for small vessels and a mole for mooring boats.
