Beach
A barrier reef just off shore of Playa de Las Canteras breaks up the waves as the water rolls in and makes for easy swimming. Enjoy the warm sands and calm waters along the 3.1 km (1.9 mi) of beach. This is one of the most popular beaches in Gran Canaria, so you'll have no trouble finding a meal and souvenirs at one of the many restaurants and shops in the paseo marítimo. The large structure at the northeast corner of the beach is an auditorium named after the tenor Alfredo Kraus. A statue of the singer stands proud outside the auditorium's entrance. Make Playa de Las Canteras a centerpiece of your Las Palmas de Gran Canaria vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Las Palmas de Gran Canaria vacation generator.

  • The place is magnificent to be all day, sand has a good quality and cleaning of the beach is amazing, the only point black services public and the bunch of bullies that you find within them, the police can be seen outside...

  • I might have been at the wrong end of the beach, but it was not nice. We left after half an hour. The sand was hard and moisty. The only thing I liked was the view... stunning...  more »
  • It is a beach very very cute and very changeable... you have to be careful, the rocks of the Fund may hurt you feet. The views are great and is equipped with all kinds of restaurants and services, perhaps you miss some more shower.
