The Gran Tarajal Open Sea Fishing Competition takes place during September each year in Gran Tarajal, Tuineje, Fuerteventura

Gran Tarajal Open Sea Fishing Competition is located in Gran Tarajal, Fuerteventura.

The coastal town of Gran Tarajal has many bars, cafes,restaurants,shops, a beach with dark sand, a harbour and marina, and is accessible by bus from Puerto del Rosario. Fresh locally caught fish can be eaten here in many local restaurants.

The name Gran Tarajal derives from the year 1740 when Tuineje saw the battle fought by an English Privateer with the ship named Grand Tarajal. At one time the port of Gran Tarajal was responsible for the export of the entire island's tomato production, today Gran Tarajal is mostly populated with locals and ex pats. It is home to one of the island's largest lime kilns, the Gran Tarajal Lime Kiln built in 1953.

More like a fiesta than a fishing tournament
Overall rating 
 
4.1
Went to Gran Tarajal harbour late afternoon on Saturday which was at the end of the tournament, we didn't see any fish, maybe we arrived too late. There was a stage with live music, people dancing, and several bars selling food including octopus, canarian potatoes, and fish croquettes, as well as drinks. It was more like a fiesta than a fishing tournament, with a nice atmosphere, hardly any tourists, and as I find with many events on Fuerteventura very little information. It was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon, the locals were very friendly, and I expect the fiesta went on until the early hours, we had to leave at 7pm as more people were arriving.
