Sand great, views amazing but if you want to stroll along las canteras then buildings are simply ugly in really poor shape + lot of places along it are tourist traps

Las Canteras is a good beach with a reef at the north of the island near the port of Las Palmas. Plenty of bars, shops, restaurants and good for surfing.

The Las Canteras beach is like no other beach you will visit. You can sunbathe at the beach whilst watching athletic joggers jog by, have a coffee or beer or a meal, catch up with friends, take photos and do everything else whilst in this...More

The stroll along the front alongside Playa De Las Canteras is nice, and the beach clean and tidy. Plenty of eateries along the front.

Visited in January the beach is a vast expanse of black and yellow sand very popular with the locals, great for surfing with big rollers. A nice promenade which is always full of locals and tourists with some fab coffee houses and restaurants

Additionally: there are steps to reach the roof for hotel guests and sun bathing chairs there, so I believe you should make sure to book a room with balcony facing the beach.

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
