An oceanfull of beaches at a stone’s throw
Gran Canaria is a miniature continent. An island close to Europe, with a wide range of beaches as diverse as the changing sceneries waiting to be discovered. Nearly 60 kilometres of beaches on 236 kilometres of coastline under a gentle sun that seems to have settled down here for good.
Gran Canaria boasts of its many different types of beaches, the magnet that has lured generations of travellers from all over the globe. Well-known and crowded, such as the long stretch of sand of Maspalomas, a huge line of yellow sand stretching from Playa del Inglés to the foot of the great Maspalomas lighthouse, after bordering a dune desert on the island’s southern coastline.
The south of the island has yet another long series of beaches. Quiet family ones such as San Agustín, Amadores, and the small Puerto de Mogán. Or lively as the traditional tourist enclave of Puerto Rico, one of the spots with the best weather in the country.
A myriad of small beaches in southern Gran Canaria, all boasting of fine weather practically the whole year. Some are for tourists, with a wide range of services. Others are a true shelter for those in need of secluded spots.
The beaches on the north of the island fit this profile better, with small sea enclaves such as Agaete, the perfect getaway spot for those who wish to leave rush behind.
The capital city, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria – also in the north – does not hide its special pride: the cosmopolitan Las Canteras Beach, an urban mile-long stretch of sand that fills the city with swimmers and surfers.
Gran Canaria offers all the services of a guaranteed destination with a long tradition, to which thousands of Europeans return each year. Come see a world of beaches concentrated within an island. Come whenever you like. Our fine weather rarely ever stops to take a break.
