Playa de San Agustin, San Agustin

3.5
#6 of 14 in Beaches in Gran Canaria
Beach Nature / Park
Often quieter and more relaxing than its surrounding beaches, Playa de San Agustin has soft, uniquely dark-colored sand. The water is calm, so it’s a great place for snorkeling and scuba diving. Rent a lounge chair or umbrella and relax. Restaurants and shops are just a few steps away, along with restrooms and showers. Keep in mind that the water gets deep rather quickly, so this beach is not suitable for children. Put Playa de San Agustin on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Maspalomas family vacation planner.
