Las Canteras, located in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the island’s capital, has been considered Spain’s best beach destination for family holidays. This Top Ten of family beaches in the country was developed by the online portal playea.es and includes La Barrosa (Chiclana de la Frontera), Playa Norte (Peñiscola, Castellón), El Sardinero (Santander), Playa de las Catedrales (Ribadeo, Lugo), L'Estartit (Girona), Isla Cristina (Huelva), Alcudia (Mallorca), Cala Martina (Ibiza) and Playa del Espejo (Murcia).

Some of the factors that make Las Canteras stand out are the Blue Flag, good accessibility conditions, as well as its sand and water quality. This supervised beach, which enjoys the natural reef’s protection in terms of tides, offers many restaurants nearby and outdoor sports, including surf paddle, snorkeling and transparent kayak.
