  • We had been on a previous trip shortly once the finger of God be without finger and had problems to park and we went fast. This time we went calmly. The problem remains of parking although there was a particular field that let you park all day for 2 euros (there were other similar but they were not open). We first approached the port where there is a bathing area on the left side of the small Pier, with crystal clear water and some fish of colors that could be seen from above. Some fishermen in the background and on the right side some people soaking up the Sun. A small beach on the other side of thick stones. It is best to wear flip-flops. No I thought it was nothing comfortable or to take the sun bath. From the port you can take the boat to Tenerife. It is relaxing to stroll through the streets of the town. Numerous restaurants to eat with good fish. A small church that recommend visiting (but which is so small that it would be a sort of open encontrala hours). And following the promenade we reach the natural pools. They seemed a delight. Take a bath there should be fantastic. The tide was high and water was entering them on a show worth seeing.

  • Place to visit, short and nice ride. Seems a poor management the collection of parking, not by the amount, but by forms, arrived at 16:00 and 16:35 I went to the car to find glasses and it was no longer anyone taking care of vehicles, while a sign read "aparcamiento" not like ripped me off with the help of the City Council and the police, it is they who are responsible for our security... and the tourists... is preferable to put blue zone Red or yellow color that seem just and Kookie...

  • . 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.
