  • A nice place for an evening stroll along the promenade and having dinner while spotting the ferry to Tenerife come and go. A charming place byt quite popular wuth tourists. 
  • A lovely little place away from the majority of the tourism, yes there are tourist gift shops and lots of restaurants but it has an all together more down to earth local feel. There are some nice sea ...  more »
  • Although it can be difficult to find parking at peak times still worth the effort as it is a beautiful spot to visit. Easy walking along the coast, where the waves can be very rough and spectacular. I...  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.
