We had a walk along here both during the day and in the evening. During the day, and on our visit, the clean and long sandy beach was busy, but not overly so, with sunbathers and swimmers. Numerous restaurants, cafes, ice cream outlets and shops...More

This is a fabulous attraction when visiting Las Palmas. The beach itself is very clean and stretches for miles so you are always assured of a place to sunbathe or swim. The Paseo or Promenade is very wide, clean, and has bars and restaurants along...More

The paseo is over 3 kilometres long and is fully pedestrianised. All along the way is an abundance of bars, restaurants and ice cream shops. The beach is split into about 3 main parts and is superb with golden sands and shallow waters. Beatiful

Playa de las Canteras is an awesome beach. It's both long and wide (narrow at some places), great sand, it's nice and clean and you usually have a good amount of space (not too crowded). The water is nice (perfect if you love to surf)...More

Playa de Las Canteras is a big beach that is very well kept and makes for a perfect relaxing day. It tends to be somewhat windy, so watch out for big waves. Especially on the southern parts. If you want more child friendly waves go...More

A great and long “paseo marítimo” allows you to walk from one end of the beach to the other. With plenty of opportunities to access the sand and walk on there. There seems to be joggers all day long either on the sidewalk or on...More

Hi guys. Im writing on a few places in Gran Canaria as we are hoping to holiday here next may. Just a few questions id like to ask 1, what does the canary island have thats different to the others. 2, what are the beaches like and is there a beach you would say is worth visiting. Asking this as recently went to lanzarote and we drove to papagayo beach so stunning also took catamaran to la graciosa again stunning. The beach were we was staying was ok but it wasnt anything special. 3, what area/town did you enjoy the best. We are wanting a bit of night life but not so much clubbing more entertainment. When we went fuerteventura everywere was closed by 11pm. 4, what hotel do you recommend. We are looking to be fair cheap as poss self catering done the AI twice and food was not what i liked and did not enjoy. Also would like to be close to beach and main strip restaurants shops ect l. Dont mind a short walk but our holiday lanzarote our hotel was over an hours walk to main strip was having to get taxis all the time. I k ow there cheap but was extra money we didnt want to spend. 5, any places you would recommend going to. Restaurants trips sightseeing ect 6, any of the hotels have car parking as we will more than likely be hiring a car. Sorry to off gone on a bit just wanting to know about the island. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

I would recommend an apartment in Playa de Las Canteras especially if your party is 4 or more. Make sure you hire a car well in advance of your visit. There are lots of excellent restaurants on the seafront. You must visit... More

Hi. You’re asking for a lot of info! Gran Canaria can be tacky at times but not like the tacky places in mainland Spain. The main holiday destination is Playa de Ingles (ing-lez) it’s packed with hotels and the sand dunes... More
