  • As stated in the title here is the real seaside village, with its whitewashed houses and blue in part "consumed" by the saline and the many seafood restaurants, we are far from the "ad hoc" type Playa del Ingles. Also recommend to anyone staying in the South of the island not to miss this part (about one hour by Expressway) in Gran Canaria, rich pre-Hispanic archeological sites and among other things a day.

  • We stayed 2 days in this small port village in the West of Gran Canaria. With these small white and blue houses, wander the streets is very nice. From the port there is possibility to connect the island of Tenerife in just over an hour. The black sand beach is not great but at least this isn't a rocky beach like the vast majority of the North of the island. There are also natural pools well sheltered for a little swim. I did not put the 5 stars because we were there in April, and many restaurants and shops were closed... Which sometimes gave an air of town Ghost (especially at night).

  • Very picturesque little town, with great restaurants and a lovely natural pool if you fancy it. A little track to get to, but a lovely place. Beach is nothing great, so wouldn't go for that.  more »

  • . The bleaker side of life in Gran Canaria. Far, far from the beaches of the south, the karaoke bars, often even far from the sunshine - this is where the winds whip the clouds and the rain falls more often as those clouds hit the mountains. Take a coat. It was 24 degrees in Maspalomas on a sunny December day, 14 degrees with a gale blowing in Puerto de las Nieves. But it's not only the weather which can be bleak here - and it is sunny sometimes. Daily life is pretty bleak for the people here, and the future is bleak too. It is one of the areas with highest unemployment, the main employment being fishing (in those gales . . .) and the Fred Perry shipping line which runs boats to Tenerife. On a clear day you can see the winter-snow-capped peak of Mount Teide riding above the waves. Others travel daily to Las Palmas to earn a living, 35 km taking 50 minutes. And as you drive south, the countryside and life get even bleaker. We picked up a hitchhiker - a 70 year old lady - as we left Agaete to drive south towards the Aldea de San Nicolás. She was going to El Risco - marked on our map as the one place on the 37 km road between Agaete and La Aldea. It took us 25 minutes to get there along a narrow winding road where heavy lorries filled with tomatoes from La Aldea rumbled past us. There was not another dwelling anywhere along the route. When we finally got to El Risco - marked on the map as I said - it was just a huddle of a dozen small houses either side of a tarmacked-over mule track leading off the "main" road and going straight up the side of the bare mountain. "No shop, no doctor, no school, no jobs, nothing, nothing" she told us. Born there, lived there all her life, although she had once been to Las Palmas. She wanted us to come and pick tomatoes from her garden as a thank-you. It made us appreciate the bleaker side of life in Gran Canaria. .
  • Little sea village with outstanding location. Great view on ocean and rocks !
  • Peaceful place filled with charm. Seafood restaurants are excellent in the port. Lots to see and great walks to explore around the place. The village’s rich history can be seen in the tiny chapel by the main square, which features a real treasure.
  • Great get away place when tired of turist hot spots in Grand Canaria
  • gorgeous and picturesque fishing village a half hour from Las Palmas.
