Gran Canaria has a lot of beaches. Your holiday is not complete without visiting one of the beautiful and famous beaches. We describe the best beaches of the touristic south part of Gran Canaria and the beaches of Las Palmas.
Beach Playa del Inglés
Probably one of the most famous beaches on Gran Canaria, with its large amount of sand and dunes and the busy boulevard with many restaurants and shops. Walk towards Maspalomas for the nudist beachpart.
Anfi del mar beach
Beautiful beach with lots of facilities, near Arguineguin. Even though it belongs to timeshare resort Anfi del Mar, it is freely accessible. Because of how this beach is situated it is often almost windless.
Beach of Puerto Rico
Relatively small beach surrounded by the buildings of Puerto Rico. Lots of facilities but also a crowded beach. This part of the island often has more sunshine hours than the rest, so sometimes it pays here to find a place in the sun.
Playa de Amadores
Amadores is a small tourist area next to Puerto Rico. It has a beautiful white beach that is daily visited by a lot of tourists coming from all over the south of Gran Canaria. It has a very nice set up with breakwaters so there is not many wave action. Lots of nice shops and restaurants. This is a good beach to go with young kids because it does not have many waves. Definitely worth to go to, at least once!
Playa de Mogan / Puerto Mogan
Small beach located on a boulevard. Nice shops and restaurants in the village. Try a viewing the port area in Puerto Mogan! It is famous for its building and the little bridges over clear water. It is often called Venice on Gran Canaria.
Playa de las Canteras, Las Palmas
Long beach with lovely promenade with many restaurants and bars. Sunbathe on the edge of the center of a big city!
