There is total chaos in Los Gigantes as the new pay to park system is introduced on Los Gigantes Marina.
Cars arriving at the marina are now stopped at the barrier. It’s take a ticket to enter or reverse into the beach road to turn. The many people who choose not to pay and need to turn around are causing traffic jams backed up to Tamara.
Those who choose to pay are charged €1.90 per hour. Berth owners can purchase a monthly pass costing €55.
Locals who work on the marina are now taking up parking spaces elsewhere in the village much to the annoyance of business owners.
So those who used to park their car behind the hotel to enjoy a day at the oasis now find the only place they can get parked is on the marina at €1.90 per hour, unless they get there before 9am

By the end of next week residents and visitors will have to pay to park on Los Gigantes Marina.
A new barrier and ticket machine are currently being installed at the entrance to the marina. Hourly fees have not been decided yet but will probably be in the region of 80cents to €1 per hour. There will be a concessionary rate for businesses and boat owners.
There are also proposals by Santiago del Teide council to limit the amount of time people can leave their cars in one place on urban roads in the municipality.
The aim of the plan is to achieve a rotation of cars to benefit traffic flow, residents and pedestrians. All roads will be classified into zones and sub zones. General roads will allow parking up to one and a half hours, after this time the car will have to be moved and not return to the same space for four hours. Residents can apply for a sticker for their car windscreens.
Parking in a road with a short term classification will be restricted to 15 minutes whilst general long term will allow parking up to two hours with no return within four hours. All areas will be clearly marked to show their status.
Residents who would like a sticker will have to provide proof of where they live on application.
The parking plan is currently out for public consultation.
