Playa de Las Canteras, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

(4.5/5 based on 4,400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beach of Las Palmas, accessible on foot and great length. When the day is good and not is cloudy is this very comfortable.
