The magical island of Gran Canaria has 230 kilometres of coastline and some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. Big ones, small ones, sandy ones, rocky ones, they come in all shapes and sizes and provide the perfect setting for a fun-packed holiday in the sun.
Maybe you love to sit in peace and quiet listening to the sound of the waves? Perhaps you prefer a lively alternative and want a choice of activities? Whether you are travelling with children, looking for a secluded nudist beach, want a romantic retreat with your loved one or are planning a party with a group of friends – there is something to suit everyone’s taste.
Here at Spain-Grancanaria we provide in-depth details so you can make the right choice. From the inspiring sights of the Maspalomas sand dunes, the ever-popular Playa del Inglés, the romantically named Playa de Amadores (Lovers’ Beach), or the peace and quiet of Playa Taurito or San Agustín, we have a list of the best the island has to offer.
We will point you in the right direction to enjoy water sports, including jet-skiing, wind-surfing, big-game fishing and scuba diving. Puerto Rico is a great place to take a boat trip along the coast and the capital city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is home to the popular Playa de las Canteras, which has a fantastic stretch of golden sand and clear blue waters.
