Playa de Las Canteras, the coastal icon of the capital of Gran Canaria
Playa de Las Canteras is the favourite area of locals and visitors for its tranquil waters and extensive coast. The “barra”, a rocky formation which has settled parallel to the shore, acts as a natural breakwater, slowing the strength of the tide and making it an ideal beach for families with young children. Like the island where it is located, this beach offers an enviable climate, with very pleasant temperatures every month of the year: in winter temperatures do not usually fall below 19ºC and in summer do not exceed 25ºC. Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is a paradise for your holiday in any month of the year.
Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, much more than sun and beach
Artistic heritage and good gastronomy also characterise this Canary Island, where its delicious dishes and historic monuments cannot be ignored. Several castles are notable, such as Castillo de Mata, Castillo de la Luz, Castillo de San Francisco and Castillo de San Cristóbal. Additionally, there are the Catedral de Santa Ana cathedral and churches such as Iglesia de San José, Iglesia de Santo Domingo de Guzmán and the San Antonio Abad chapel.
For those who love nightlife, it is important to know that this atmosphere is found in the Vegueta quarter and the seafront promenade, with lively bars and nightclubs.
